LG and Samsung top list of lowest radiation emitting cellphones

Posted in Mobile Phones by Conner Flynn on June 6th, 2011

These days phones have invaded every aspect of our lives. However according to the experts at WHO, they emit radio-frequency waves which when absorbed by the human body prove harmful. The powers-that-be have come up with a standard called Specific absorption rate (SAR) and the FCC now requires cell phone makers to report the SAR level of their devices. The upper cap on acceptable levels is less than or equal to 1.6 watts per kilogram (W/kg).

Here is a list of the top 10 lowest radiation emitting cell phones.

Cellphones may protect the brain from Alzheimer’s

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on January 10th, 2010

We’ve all heard that cellphone radiation can be bad for you, even if it does remain unproven. But a new study in mice suggests that using cellphones may help prevent some of the brain-wasting effects of Alzheimer’s disease.

After long-term exposure to electromagnetic waves like those in cell phones, mice that were genetically altered to develop Alzheimer’s performed as well on memory and thinking skill tests as healthy mice. So I guess cellphones could be good for us and bad at the same time.

Posted in Mobile Accessories by Conner Flynn on January 4th, 2010

You have leashes for your pets, why not your cellphone? I mean you don’t want to lose it right? So put it on a leash. Sure this thing looks like a futuristic hockey puck or a smart urinal cake, but it’s a leash called ZOMM. If you lose your mobile phone, just attach the ZOMM to your keychain and it lets you hear and take incoming calls.

It also features a one-touch emergency dial for 911 and emits an alarm to warn you you’re moving too far from your handset. The device should retail for about $80.

Maine to consider cancer warning labels on cellphones

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on December 20th, 2009

The debate continues as to whether or not cell phones can harm us, but one state may be ready take the next step in warning consumers about the dangers. If she has her way, a Maine legislator wants to make the state the first to require cell phones to carry warnings that they can cause brain cancer, even though there is no consensus among scientists that they do.

Cell phones carry these warnings in some countries, but right now no U.S. states require them. A similar effort is underway in San Francisco, where Mayor Gavin Newsom would like his city to be the nation’s first to require such warnings. These measures seem premature, given the fact that there is no hard data to support the claims.

Radiation levels, cellphones,smartphones,best,worstYou probably already know that your cellphone leaks radiation into you while you’re on the phone. Of course you do. Though we try not to think about it, it is worth knowing which cellphones have the highest and lowest radiation levels. To that end, the Environmental Working Group has launched a website that rates cellphones on radiation output.

Here are the highlights: Ranking high on the list (in other words these phones put out the lowest levels of radiation) are the Motorola RAZR V8, and AT&T’s Samsung Impression. In fact, Samsung holds several spots at the top of the list. On the other end of the spectrum, some phones that rated poorly are T-Mobile’s myTouch 3G and the Blackberry Curve 8830.

Kenyan students charge cellphones with pedal power

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on July 26th, 2009

Kenyan students charge cellphones with pedal powerThis DIY gadget is dubbed the “smart charger” and it’s from two Kenyan students who reside in rural areas without electricity. They also use bikes to get around. Jeremiah Murimi and Pascal Katana use a dynamo attached to the bicycle in order to charge cellphone batteries. The whole process costs practically nothing.

They used parts from old discarded radio and television sets to assemble the small charger. The user is able to plug the dynamo lead right into the device. An hour of pedaling can fully recharge the battery in about the same time it would take if it was plugged into an electrical outlet. The idea is that the user would avoid paying $2 each time for battery recharges by making a one-time smart charger purchase worth about $4.50.

30% to 40% of D.C’s homeless use cellphones

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on March 23rd, 2009

Nokia 7510 Supernova phoneWhen you think about the homeless, you likely think about wool blankets, shopping carts and cardboard box shelters. Add the cell phone to that list. According to advocates who work with the district’s homeless, the proportion of homeless people who own and use a cellphone is 30% to 40%.

It seems bizarre, but the gadget once considered a luxury, is now being used by the homeless to keep up with food stamp programs, housing applications and checking emails. There’s also the obvious need for the 911 feature. It makes sense, as a pay as you go phone with 200 minutes can cost about $20 or $30. It’s a lifeline.

Bic pre-charged disposable cellphones

Bic pre-charged disposable cellphones
Disposable cell phones are everywhere. That’s nothing new. But disposable cells must have now reached critical mass if Bic, makers of disposable lighters for decades, is in the game. The company has teamed up with Orange France to launch their Bic disposable cellphone. It’s a prepaid phone that comes pre-charged and gives you an hour of free calls. It even comes with a SIM card already inserted, which needs to be activated to start making calls.

It’s manufactured by Alcatel and they kept it simple as the user can only make calls and send texts. You can get them in “Citrus Orange” or “Lime Green” for $80 starting August 7th in France. They probably should have thrown in standard Bic lighter for that price. It’s the least they can do. Then you would be covered for both making calls and lighting your smokes.

Sony Ericsson W890 Walkman with 8GB memorySony Ericsson dropped a new Walkman mobile phone/media player to the market today with the W980, featuring 8GB of internal memory, included headphones and something the company is calling “Walkman On Top”.

The new Walkman On Top is a lot like it sounds. SE put the controls and the display of current playing tracks on the front of the device allowing complete navigation and viewing without having to open up the handset, hence the name “on top”. The new Walkman also comes with built-in stereo speakers and FM transmitter letting users share their tunes directly or through an FM radio on a home or car stereo. Sony Ericsson also wanted to make sure that listening to music alone was clear with quality sound and threw in Stereo Portable Handsfree HPM-77 headset. The headset allows listening to music and the ability to take calls hands free.
