Let freedom ring; and go to voicemail

You have the right to silence your cellphone: The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that law enforcement agencies must obtain a search warrant before searching someone's cellphone. “With all they contain and all they may reveal, they hold for many Americans the privacies of life,” said Chief Justice John Roberts in a 9-0 decision.

Looking for a way around the warrant requirement, the National Security Agency said it may try to turn Siri into a paid informant.

Get me Orson Bean on the phone: Fox may be running out of ideas to boost viewership for “American Idol.” In past seasons it has reshuffled its panel of judges to regain viewer interest, but it announced this week it would keep last season's trio of Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr., despite ratings that continue to decline.

That's too bad. We were hoping for a rotating panel that would feature the casts of “Duck Dynasty,” “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” and any panelists still alive from “Match Game 73.”

Potato, patah-toe: A Washington, D.C., couple is suing British Airways because it ruined their vacation by sending them to the Caribbean island of Grenada, instead of Granada in Spain.
