With all the progress in communication since the last papal election, you just *know* it's going to drive the media nuts not being able to know *anything* about what's going on until we see the white smoke. We're so used to up-to-the-minute info on everything (whether we want it or not!) - the silence from the conclave is going to give them fits. They've speculated, placed odds, but we won't really know until we know.
Personally, I'm rather amused at the discomfort this will give the media.
Edit to add: And to noone's surprise, CNN has a 'chimney cam'. Unfortunately you have to be a paid CNN subscriber (which I'm not) to view it. Makes you wonder how people survived before modern media...
