MANILA, Philippines — The ill-fated MV Princess of the Stars had all the fancy communications systems in the world, but for some weird reasons they all failed when they were needed, except for an antiquated single side band radio and the ubiquitous cell phones.

You can read more about this tragedy, which claimed the lives of 800 people, at the Philippine Daily Inquirer Web site.
