Mobile Phone Jammer For Sale?

Could it be posible? A device that blocks the mobile phones from working around you? That only costs $56? Well, even if it's real it is probably illegal for personal use as it would block open radio signals in the area which is illegal. Still, it sure sounds useful for those moments when people are being especially rude with their phones.

DealExtreme is selling what they call a Cell Phone Jammer which supposedly blocks all mobile phone signals within a 2 to 40 foot radius. Here's what the site says about the product:
- Creates enough interference to block all cell phone signals around you (GSM/CDMA/DCS/PHS/3G)
