Antennas or Gorillas?

Antennas of cellphones will become very small soon, as reported by the NY Times (reg. req.). I hope they will be fabricated with other stuff then the present ones. Arthur C. Clarke, SF writer, and Leonardo di Caprio, patrons of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund, are pointing to the thread to the forests of Eastern Congo, home of the gorilla, where 80% of the Coltan ore comes from that is used in antennas! I guess that the continuous political instability of this region has also to do with these scarce material. And what about Mugabe and his involvement in Congo, and thus his urge to remain in power in Zimbabwe?
