The Hidden Dangers of Cell Phone Radiation

Every day, we’re swimming in a sea of electromagnetic radiation (EMR) produced by electrical appliances, power lines, wiring in buildings, and a slew of other technologies that are part of modern life. From the dishwasher and microwave oven in the kitchen and the clock radio next to your bed, to the cellular phone you hold to your ear—sometimes for hours each day—exposure to EMR is growing and becoming a serious health threat.

But there’s a huge public health crisis looming from one particular threat: EMR from cellular phones—both the radiation from the handsets and from the tower-based antennas carrying the signals—which studies have linked to development of brain tumors, genetic damage, and other exposure-related conditions.1-9 Yet the government and a well-funded cell phone industry media machine continue to mislead the unwary public about the dangers of a product used by billions of people. Most recently, a Danish epidemiological study announced to great fanfare the inaccurate conclusion that cell phone use is completely safe.10

George Carlo, PhD, JD, is an epidemiologist and medical scientist who, from 1993 to 1999, headed

The Christmas holidays are the time of year when different generations of the family gather around the dinner table. So it’s a perfect opportunity for a spot of tech anthropology. Here’s how to do it.

At some point, insert into the conversation a contemporary topic about which most people have strong opinions but know relatively little. Jeremy Clarkson, say. There will come a moment when someone decides that the only thing to be done to resolve the ensuing factual disputes is to “Google it”. Watch what happens next. The younger members of the group will pull out their smartphones and key in the search terms. Most of the older members will do nothing – other than make a mental note to look it up

Buying New Electronics Tips on Choosing the Right Gadget For You

This situation may be stressful to you, that’s why we here at The Bitbag would love to give you some tips before you spend some cash on that smartphone or laptop you’ve been eyeing for the longest time.

Do your own share of research.

Do not just buy something because people are buying it or because you like its advertisements. Always search the web for other gadgets that may have the same features and specs as the one you want. Who knows, there may be something equally as useful, but less expensive. Buying expensive gadgets must not be an impulse purchase. Always do your homework.

Care Tips for Electronic Gadgets

As we move ever further into the electronic age, many of us can’t be parted from our iPads, tabs, iPods and cellphones, so keeping them clean and protected from harm makes sense.

Here’s a quick guide on cleaning and caring for your electronic gadgets and hi-tech home appliances.

Smart phone, pad or tab

Carry it in a separate case, preferably hard body, as debris can clog buttons and keys. House keys can scratch the surface or dislodge keyboard keys and sitting on it can break the device. Clean it with lint-free electronic wipes or cloths used to clean eye wear. Wipe around the speaker, mic and buttons with an ear bud slightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

Never leave it out in direct sunlight or extreme cold.

iPod or mp3 player

Protect it in a slip or holder, unless you carry it without coins or keys in your pocket. Consider a protective skin if you have a larger screen model like an iPod Classic or iPod Touch. Clean it with lint-free electronic wipes or cloths used for cleaning eyewear. Use an ear bud with a bit of rubbing alcohol (so it’s damp, not wet) around click-wheels or buttons.

Charge it out of its case, to ensure air circulation


Electronic gadgets are ubiquitous nowadays, with people increasingly relying on them for communication, information retrieval, entertainment and many other facets of their daily lives. Fragility is the cost of this convenience and, in order for the many gadgets that have become essential parts of our lives to continue to work correctly, they need to be properly taken care of if you want your gadgets to be protected from costly damage.

Price comparison websites are the best starting point when it comes to finding the electronic gadgets you are after, rather than aimlessly surfing the web or wandering around high street mega-stores like a zombie. There are also popular online blogs for finding gadgets, and a great number of shopping websites where you can easily find the specific gadget and often at a great bargain price.

The first point to bear in mind when looking after precious gadgets like a desktop pc is that they must be handled with some care because, by and large, they tend to be rather fragile. Internal components can become dislodged if the gadget is dropped accidentally, and this may make it inoperable. All such fragile gadgets should be kept in protective cases when not being used.

The question is, how do you take care

Seven top gadget tips that all travellers should know

To travel with electrical devices or not?

For many, it’s a no-brainer — life simply wouldn’t go on without a smartphone or hair straightener.

But when you’re travelling, the risk and hassle of having to replace a device when lost, damaged or stolen is bigger — and an unwanted expense. So how do you keep your phone, camera, laptop, and other electrical gear safe and make sure they come home intact?

Travel safety specialist Phil Sylvester, of Travel Insurance Direct, has plenty of experience in what can go wrong — the insurer had received more than $1 million worth of claims in less than two years for lost, stolen or damaged electrical devices. Here, he provides

“Technology is integral to our everyday lives, but taking it with you is a risk,” he said.

“We’re not saying don’t take anything, but ensure your devices are as inconvenient to steal as possible, pack your items carefully and double check that anything important is adequately covered by your travel insurance.

“We have seen briefcases stolen from under the claimants’ chair, bags being dropped overboard by ship staff and even items being taken from locked backpacks.

“Just goes to show that you can’t assume that your belongings will be safe just because

Which TV Streaming Device Should You Buy

Domain 72

You’ve probably heard of Smart TVs from one of my previous episodes. In 2015, smart TVs have taken a back seat to streaming devices, such as the Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire Stick, and Chromecast. All of these devices fill the same niche but have some pretty different feature sets and prices. It can be pretty confusing, so in this week’s episode, I’m going to compare each of these devices, and give specific recommendations based upon the content and features you use the most.

Each of these devices is designed to take your dumb TV screen and make it smart by giving you access to apps and streaming content, such as Netflix, Spotify, Hulu, Amazon, and many other apps and services.

Apple TV

First up is the Apple TV. I really like the Apple TV for a number of reasons, the first of which is that it fits perfectly in the Apple ecosystem. If you have any other Apple device, such as an iPad or an iPhone, this is probably the best one of these streaming devices for you. It has support for 1080p at 60fps, which is full HD; however, it does not yet support Ultra HD, which is advertised as 4k.

8 common-sense tips to keep your smartphone secure

Keeping your property safe often comes down to common sense, and your smartphone is no different than your PC or home. Taking basic precautions will go a long way toward saving you time and money.

Here are eight tips to boost the security of your smartphone and what you store on it:

1. Protect your investment.

Losing your smartphone can be pretty stressful. Each day, 200,000 devices are lost, stolen or damaged. You might be surprised by the high out-of-contract price of replacing a lost smartphone with an equivalent make and model.

To prevent this from happening, consider Total Mobile Protection. You’ll get a replacement device—as soon as the next day—if yours is lost, stolen, damaged, or has a mechanical or electrical defect after the manufacturer’s warranty expires.

Part of Total Mobile Protection is Verizon Support & Protection, an app powered by McAfee® to help protect your device against viruses, malware and other digital threats. Other useful features include lock, locate, alarm, and the ability to wipe your device if it is lost.

2. Use a pin, password or pattern to lock your phone.

Setting this up is easy. For most Android™ devices, go to your Location & Security Settings for instructions. iOS users can find these

Gadget buying and selling

Gadget buying and selling is popular on eBay but is it a good idea? What should you know before you auction off your AT&T iPhone or buy a used Kindle? Here are some key things to consider in order to ensure that your gadget buying and selling goes smoothly.

Buyers Should Consider

  • Warranty status. Most consumer electronics devices are protected by a manufacturer’s warranty, but these are of varying lengths and many don’t transfer or are void when the purchase is not made through a particular retailer. Check with the manufacturer in question about warranty policies for the device you’re considering.
  • Amount of use. Watch for devices that have seen relatively little use if possible, since consumer electronics devices, too, have finite lifetimes-particularly when it comes to things like buttons, controls, and screens. Buttons can stick or become less sensitive, while screens can dim or become scratched or cloudy.
  • Original software/accessories. Too often consumer electronics and computing devices being sold on eBay don’t include needed accessories like AC adapters (chargers), USB or data cables, needed software (such as Windows or Mac OS) or documentation. These can be expensive and in some cases extremely difficult to replace.
  • Risky “untested” and “does not work” items. Ninety-nine times

Life with the LG V10 and its oddball second screen

I was initially skeptical of LG’s V10. Both the second screen and dual selfie cameras struck me as classic phone gimmicks in the vein of the Samsung Continuum or Kyocera Echo: They seem like good ideas when you’re in the store, but you’ll forget that they exist in a matter of weeks. But are they really that frivolous? And could the fingerprint reader, tougher body and better video recording controls come in handy, too? There’s only one way to find out. I’ve spent several weeks living with the V10, and I was pleasantly surprised: It’s clear that LG’s extras can be genuinely useful. This isn’t a flawless phone, though, and you’ll still want to think carefully before picking one up for yourself.

I’ll say this up front: The V10 has the best second-screen implementation I’ve seen to date.

Ten ways to protect yourself from harmful cell phone radiation

(NaturalNews) You’ve probably heard that cell-phone usage could expose you to unhealthy levels of radiation. With 1.9 billion cell phone users worldwide (208 million alone in the U.S.), they have become a technological fixture and they’re not going away anytime soon.

Research so far has been mixed, but some experts, like Dr. George Carlo, former chief scientist of the cell phone industry’s $28 million safety research project, believes we could be on the verge of a major healthcare crisis. Specifically, he believes the world could be on the precipice of 500,000 brain and other cancer cases annually, because of the proliferation – and rising power – of cell phone technology.

Experts warn that research has already linked cell phone usage – theoretically, at least – to a range of ailments such as increased headaches, high blood pressure, earlier onset of Alzheimers and, of course, cancer. They say though such research is preliminary and much more is needed to be certain, effects of radiation are cumulative and affect different people in different ways – and on different time schedules.

So there’s no time to waste in developing habits that will limit your exposure. Here are some ideas that can potentially reduce your risk:

Advantages and Disadvantages of Mobile Phones

Almost everyone has a mobile phone these days. Everywhere you go, you’ll see people sporting the latest mobile phone models. Mobile phones have completely changed the way people interact. You can call, send text messages, read emails, play games as well as read and edit documents on the go. Today, the mobile phone has become part and parcel of many people’s lives. Leaving home without your phone is akin to leaving without your shoes on. Clearly, the mobile phone is one of the phenomenal inventions of this age. So what are the repercussions of constantly using these devices day in day out? Let’s find out the advantages and disadvantages of mobile phones below.

Advantages of Mobile Phones

1. Easy CommunicationMost people have at least a simple, if not sophisticated, mobile phone. These devices are convenient to carry around and you can use them on the go as long as there is network coverage wherever you are. Many parents allow their kids to own mobile phone because they feel secure in the knowledge that they can reach their kids wherever they are and at any time. Mobile phones have clearly made it easier to communicate.

Intel and Google Equip Smartphones with 3D Cameras and Computer Vision

Computer vision and sensing are crucial for cars, robots, drones and many other applications. However, existing devices such as personal computers or mobile gadgets can also take advantage of such technologies . Intel, Google and Lenovo introduced their new smartphones that feature either RealSense or project Tango sensors, which can scan volumetric objects as well as detect motions and gestures. The smartphones are compatible with Google’s project Tango technology and are designed for developers of software as well as enthusiasts, who would like to experiment with computer vision.

Google Tango and Intel RealSense

Google’s project Tango and Intel’s RealSense have a lot in common, but they are not exactly the same thing. Intel’s RealSense started like a way to enable better interaction between computers and humans (hence, it is compatible with Microsoft Windows, it can recognize faces, gestures, etc.), but quickly evolved into a more general computer vision technology that will eventually be used for robots and drones. The goal of Google’s Tango was to give computers a human-like perception of space and motion, which is important for a wide range of devices.

Both Tango and RealSense use similar sensors (an RGB camera, a motion tracking camera, an IR depth sensor, various

Causes of weak cell phone signals and regulating cell phone signal boosters

Have you been experiencing many dropped calls lately? Are you living or working in a cell phone signal dead zone? If you have answered �yes� to these questions then you definitely need cell phone signal boosters.

Cell phone signal boosters are devices that are used to increase and improve your service provider�s signal strength. They are also known to reduce noise and to improve the sound quality of phone calls and even increase your battery life. Cell phone signal boosters extend the range of any cell phone signal. There are two ways in which cell phone signal boosters can be used; by connecting the signal booster directly to your phone or by using a repeater (or an amplifier) which requires no physical connection to your phone.

Weak cell phone signals are caused by various reasons. Building size affects signal strength by attenuating the signal and interference by objects that reflect the signal inside the building is also to blame. This is common in large buildings such as factories and is the same in the basements of big buildings. In these situations Cell phone signal boosters with external amplifiers can be mounted at various locations on the building to improve signal reception.

4 Ways To Keep Your Smartphone’s Battery Healthy, Happy And Juiced Up

Smartphones are magical, loyal little companions, there to give you your bank account balance, directions to the movies, and a recommendation for a killer Chinese restaurant all in a few swipes.

But, with a little neglect, they can die on you in the worst moments. Avoid this nightmare scenario and treat your little friend right, with these quick tips to maintaining your battery’s health.

Less is More

Back when nickel-based batteries were a thing, people were encouraged to “train” their batteries by completely draining them and then completely recharging them. (The Yoda-esque idea being that they wouldn’t properly function without knowing their full potential.) Forget what you’ve heard.

Pretty much every modern smartphone contains a lithium-ion battery, which are entirely different beasts.

In general, you should keep your smartphone’s battery charged above 50 percent. If you want to take it one step further, you should try to do one full drain a month,

T-Mobile G-Slate Tablet Review – Features And Specifications

With its 8.9-inch screen, the T-Mobile G-Slate is noticeably smaller than both the 10.1-inch Xoom and the 9.8-inch iPad 2. The G-Slate is only slightly heavier than the iPad 2, but, like the Xoom, feels heftier, due to its odd weight distribution.

The G-Slate has a thickness of 0.49 inch, a little over one-third thicker than the iPad 2′s 0.34-inch profile. In landscape mode, its screen is as wide as the iPad 2′s, but is about an inch shorter in height. The G-Slate feels comfortable in our hands while typing, whether in landscape or portrait mode, and unlike the iPad 2 with its smooth-as-silk metal casing, the G-Slate isn�t as likely to slip from our grip.

On its bottom side, the tablet has ports for Mini-USB and Mini-HDMI�although not Micro-HDMI as on the Xoom. On the top are a volume rocker and microphone pinhole. Two speakers can be found on the right side, with another on the left. Also on the left are the power/lock button, a headphone jack, and the power adapter slot input.

Accessing the G-Slate�s SIM card is a little more involved than doing the same on the Xoom. There�s a hidden panel on the back, requiring you to push

Wifi mobile phones � A new face of internet connectivity

Mobile internet is already a popular service which mobile phones are providing to their users. Previously users were only capable to access internet from their mobile phone through GPRS or by plugging their mobile phones with their laptops or personal computers and using the mobile internet on their laptops and computers. But the things have changed now; mobile phones with Wi-Fi feature are now a ruler of mobile internet. Wi-Fi technology is already been acknowledged as one of the fastest way to access internet which is already been embraced by common users and now with the inception of mobile phones with Wi-Fi things are getting even bigger and better.

Wifi mobile phones are not only popular among businessmen who are using their office or home wifi internet to access internet on their mobile phone but also among youngsters who are saving lots of money through using wifi internet of their colleges and hostels over their phone. The Wi-Fi technology as we known today was invented by IEEE in 1997. In its starting age, wifi technology as only used in big corporate offices and government houses because of the cost and the logistics required however as the days passed by the

How to Take Care of Your Smartphone

Bernice loves her smartphone. Europa loves her smartphone. Melvin loves his smartphone. Thomas loves his smartphone. And I love my smartphone. Smartphones may actually be more popular than Kim Kardashian. Who’d have thought?

But unlike Kim K., smartphones have become essential to life as we know it.

Recently my iPhone speaker broke. I dropped it at the Apple Store for repairs and discovered much to my horror that my entire life screeched to a halt. After exiting the store, I didn’t even know which way to turn. The map to my next meeting was on my smartphone. I couldn’t even call Bernice for directions because even if payphones still existed (which they don’t), I don’t know her number. The last time I memorized a phone number there were only 150 Pokemon.

Most ironically, the Genius Bar notifies you that your repairs are done by sending you email. If the device being repaired is the one you read email on—like my iPhone is for me—you’re outta luck. It makes one wonder how they define “Genius.”

If smartphones are so central to our lives, it’s time to get smart about buying and caring for them.;

Boost Your Internet Connection

For most users, the home internet connection usually has two basic issues: slow connection speed and poor WiFi coverage. For slow network speed, try and ask your providers for a faster connection. Broadband operators are introducing up to 50Mbps connections now. Or, you could just bridge (combine) multiple internet connections. To do this, we suggest you try out Connectify Speedify from The software gives you step by step instructions on how to combine your WiFi, DSL and 3G/4G connections. The free account limits you to 1GB of data transfer per month while paid plans start at US$9 per month.

Coming to the range issue, WiFi routers are affected by multiple things — placement, brick walls, electronics, appliances and so on. All of this can lead to poor network coverage of WiFi signal in your home. To solve this issue you can go for a wireless extender. There are various options available from TPlink, D-link, Netgear starting at Rs 1,500 onwards. If your router has a WPS (WiFi Protected Setup) button, get a range extender with WPS and it only takes a minute.

5 Reasons Why Cellphones Are Bad For Your Health

Ninety-one percent of American adults and 60 percent of teens own this device that has revolutionized communication in the 21st century — the cellphone. Whether you own an Android, an iPhone, a Blackberry, or a basic flip phone, chances are you check your phone for messages, alerts, or calls even when your mobile device isn’t ringing or vibrating, reports a Pew Internet & American Life Project survey. The modern convenience that cell phones provide is responsible for everyone’s increased daily use. According to the Morningside Recovery Rehabilitation Center, the average American spends 144 minutes a day using his or her phone during a 16-hour period. With an estimated six billion subscriptions worldwide and counting, cell phones have become one of the fundamental means of communication in society.

While cell phones provide an efficient and easy way to communicate with friends, family, and co-workers, excessive use can take a toll on your health. Mobile phones use transmitting radio waves through a series of base stations where radiofrequency waves are electromagnetic fields that cannot break chemical bonds or cause ionization in the human body, says the World Health Organization (WHO). Although cellphones are considered to be low-powered radiofrequency transmitters, your handset transmits power when
