Well increased cases of Brain Tumors, Cancer, Migraines, Joint Pain, Sever headaches, Stress, Eye problems, Memory Loss, Impaired Immune System & more disorders, well you are thinking how come our generation has the best quality life style ever and still having all this health issues unlike our grandsters who lived life without even heading to a hospital, well there is a Silent Killer close to houses, offices & even schools & Hospitals which are slowly & steadily killing you in pieces. Yes, they are called Cell Phone Towers, well if anyone doesn’t how it looks like here is a picture of the same…

Deadly Cell Phone Towers

Well I think even the wild mushrooms will not grow so faster these days but there is no scarcity of this death machines lurking and growing on your neighbour buildings by the time you get out of your sleep, such is the greed of quick money making & carelessness of others health & the society around them.

I will explain you much simple words exposure to 1 cell phone tower within 50 meters close to your house or office is like sitting in a microwave oven for about 2 hours every day, well you know your chicken or that tasty meal will get char coaled by that time then imagine your brain cells or immunity with exposure to such harmful radiations emitted from this deadly Mobile towers on a day to day basis.

Here is a story of two of who have been diagnosed with brain cancer after three towers were installed next to their upscale C-scheme neighborhood in Jaipur. Since then, illnesses, both minor and major, have become a part of their lives and the lives of the 50 other families in their neighbourhood.

It has proven one of the major reason of Brain tumours & Cancers is exposure to Carcogenic radiation and there are few who complain I never smoked or drunk my whole life i was having a life style but still I am pron to cacncer well you know whom to blame the deadly killers hanging around your locality. A complete study of the hazards of Mobile towers  is available @ (If your intrested in wordly matters) http://www.ee.iitb.ac.in/~mwave/GK-cell-tower-rad-report-DOT-Dec2010.pdf

A number of independent health and government authorities have commented on this important study & hazards of this deadly killer. In 2006 a large Danish study about the connection between mobile phone use and cancer incidence was published. It followed over 420,000 Danish citizens for 20 years and showed no increased risk of cancer. A number of independent health and government authorities have commented on this important study including The Australian Centre for Radiofrequency Bioeffects Research (ACRBR) which said in a statement that an increased risk of brain cancer is established from the data from Interphone

“Even with cellphone use, benign swelling in the brain and head, hearing disorders, headaches and anxiety neurosis are well established,” said Dr Sameer Kaul, cancer surgeon, Indraprastha Apollo Hospital, New Delhi India

The World Health Organisation’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) says radiation from cellphone handsets and towers is “possibly carcinogenic to humans” and may cause glioma, a type of brain cancer. Towers are more dangerous than handsets because they emit greater-intensity radiation 24X7.

“The area of concern is base-stations and their antennas, which provide the link to and from cellphones. This is because, in contrast to handsets, it (RF) is emitted continuously and is more powerful at close quarters, These microwaves might travel for as few as 2 miles in hilly areas, and up to 45 miles where there are fewer obstructions, and of course, they easily penetrate brick and metal.

The human body itself is electromagnetic (at a very low level—around 10 hertz). It’s been shown that each one of our cells has its own electromagnetic field (EMF). Maintaining balance in those cellular EMFs is critical to staying healthy. Decades of studies have demonstrated that artificial frequencies higher than 10 hertz can create stress and serious health problems. Cellphone tower wavelengths, microwaves have a significantly higher frequency than even radio waves. The higher the frequency, the more powerful the wave—and the more powerful effect on biological organisms.

EMF Exposure Health Effects

  • Enzymes
  • DNA
  • Metabolism
  • Genes
  • Hormones
  • And more

Cell Tower Radiation Has Been Linked To:

  • Headaches
  • Memory loss
  • Low sperm count
  • Cancer, birth defects
  • Heart conditions
  • Alzheimer’s.

After 20 minutes of using cell phones, you feel a warm sensation near the ear. This is because the temperature of the earlobes increases by one degree Celsius. A maximum of 6 minutes of cell phone usage is recommended during the day since a cell phone transmits 1 to 2 watts of power, which are very high and dangerous. Till 2009, India had no standards. India adopted the radiation norms specified by ICNIRP in 2009, which are now outdated as they were only intended to protect people against short-term gross heating effects and not ‘biological’ effects such as cancers and genetic damage from long-term exposure.

Also, these safety standards are based on 6 minutes per day exposure, without accounting for people who live close to cell towers 24/7. The norms allow EMF of 4,500 mw/m2.

How can exposure be reduced or what is the solution?

Children below age 5 are the most susceptible to such radiations don’t expose them to such radiations. At first, I would recommend that the amplification of power in the cell towers be reduced by removing the power amplifier or by reducing the gain of the antenna. Reduce the power or remove the tower. By reducing the power, coverage area will be reduced, which can be taken care of by using more cell towers or repeaters or in-building solutions. The height of towers should be increased. All towers in close proximity to schools and hospitals should be checked and removed, if too close. No 2 Cell Phone towers should be within 100 meters radius close to each others, specifically in residential areas, school & Hospitals don’t allow to erect Cell Phone Towers or if already erected complain to your nearby local authorities. Finally  only proper rules and regulations set up by the civic body can make a difference from the deathly menace lurking around everywhere.

CellHelmet

CellHelmet

Here is a deal by a company called Cellhelmet, a new protective iPhone case from a company called Cellpig. Originally started as a Kickstarter project, the cases recently went into production and are now available for retail sale, so if your phone breaks in the case (excluding water damage), then the company promises to replace it for a year for a $50 handling fee, with no monthly fee for the coverage. Phones are repaired or replaced within three days of receipt and are overnighted back to your address. cellhelmet includes accidental damage coverage for any iPhone 4/4S, regardless if it’s new, used, unlocked or ailbroken. Also, never wait to file a claim. If your device breaks on day one of ownership go ahead and file a claim.  All iPhone 4/4S repairs will be completed withOEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer)Apple parts.

The case is made of dense polyurethane rubber, and has angled edges for drop-shock displacement around the device. It be purchased and used on any iPhone 4 or 4S, even jailbroken iPhones and ones you’ve been using for a few years now.

Apple offers AppleCare+ for new iPhones for $99 and will replace your broken phone twice due to mishandling under the program for $49 — making it still probably a better bet for new phone owners. The win with Cellhelmet is going to be for people who are still using a phone where Apple Care has run out, people who didn’t sign up for coverage when they bought their Phones (most require you sign up immediately or within 30 days), and those who have jailbroken their iPhones which makes them ineligible for Apple protection.

Good Ideas helpful for the consumers but unfortunately, there will always be people out there that take advantage of the system and commit fraud.  What do you think ?

Visionary Leader - Steve Jobs

Visionary Leader - Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs, who transformed the worlds of personal computing, music and mobile phones, died on Wednesday at the age of 56 after a years-long battle with pancreatic cancer.

The co-founder of Apple Inc, one of the world’s great entrepreneurs, was surrounded by his wife and immediate family when he died in Palo Alto, California. Other details were not immediately available.

His death was announced by Apple and sparked an immediate outpouring of sadness and sympathy from world leaders, competitors and other businessmen including Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

The Silicon Valley icon who gave the world the iPod, iPhone and iPad had stepped down as chief executive of the world’s largest technology company in August, handing the reins to long-time lieutenant Tim Cook.

He was deemed the heart and soul of a company that rivals Exxon Mobil as the most valuable in America.
“Steve’s brilliance, passion and energy were the source of countless innovations that enrich and improve all of our lives. The world is immeasurably better because of Steve,” Apple said in a statement.

“His greatest love was for his wife, Laurene, and his family. Our hearts go out to them and to all who were touched by his extraordinary gifts.”

Apple paid homage to their visionary leader by changing their website to a big black-and-white photograph of him with the caption “Steve Jobs: 1955-2011.” The flags outside the company’s headquarters at 1 Infinite Loop flew at half mast.
Jobs’ health had been a controversial topic for years and his battle with a rare form of pancreatic cancer a deep concern to Apple fans and investors.

In past years, even board members have confided to friends their concern that Jobs, in his quest for privacy, was not being forthcoming enough with directors about the true condition of his health.

Now, despite much investor confidence in Cook, who has stood in for his boss during three leaves of absence, there remain concerns about whether Apple would stay a creative force to be reckoned with in the longer term without its visionary.
Jobs died one day after the consumer electronics powerhouse unveiled its latest iPhone, the gadget that transformed mobile communications and catapulted Apple to the highest echelons of the tech world.

His death triggered an immediate outpouring of sympathy.
“The world rarely sees someone who has had the profound impact Steve has had, the effects of which will be felt for many generations to come,” Gates said. “For those of us lucky enough to get to work with him, it’s been an insanely great honor. I will miss Steve immensely.”

Outside an Apple store in New York, mourners laid candles, bouquets of flowers, an apple and an iPod Touch in a makeshift memorial.

“I think half the world found out about his death on an Apple device,” said Robbie Sokolowsky, 32, an employee for an online marketing company, who lit a candle outside the store.
Cook said in a statement that Apple planned to hold a celebration of Jobs’ life for employees “soon”.
APPLE, NEXT, IPHONE
A college dropout, Buddhist and son of adoptive parents, Jobs started Apple Computer with friend Steve Wozniak in 1976. The company soon introduced the Apple 1 computer.

But it was the Apple II that became a huge success and gave Apple its position as a critical player in the then-nascent PC industry, culminating in a 1980 initial public offering that made Jobs a multimillionaire.

Despite the subsequent success of the Macintosh computer, Jobs’ relationship with top management and the board soured. The company removed most of his powers and then in 1985 he was fired.
Apple’s fortunes waned after that. However, its purchase of NeXT — the computer company Jobs founded after leaving Apple — in 1997 brought him back into the fold. Later that year, he became interim CEO and in 2000, the company dropped “interim” from his title.
Along the way Jobs also had managed to revolutionize computer animation with his other company, Pixar, but it was the iPhone in 2007 that secured his legacy in the annals of modern technology history.

Forbes estimates Jobs’ net worth at $6.1 billion in 2010, placing him in 42nd place on the list of America’s richest. It was not immediately known how his estate would be handled.
Six years ago, Jobs had talked about how a sense of his mortality was a major driver behind that vision.

“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life,” Jobs said during a Stanford commencement ceremony in 2005.

“Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure — these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.”

“Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”

So I am back with an intresting blog on ‘Smartphones” , yeah the one you geeky one always asked for “A miniature computer that has phone capability”. Ok, let me start with describing what a SMARTphone really is:

“Smartphone is a mobile phone offering advanced capabilities, often with PC-like functionality. There is no industry standard definition of a smartphone. For some, a smartphone is a phone that runs complete operating system software providing a standardized interface and platform for application developers. For others, a smartphone is simply a phone with advanced features like e-mail, Internet and e-book reader capabilities, and/or a built-in full keyboard or external USB keyboard and VGA connector. So as I said, it is a miniature computer that has phone capability

Now lets come to the main topic waht are the Best Smartphone available today by Operating System they have used, the answer defnitely varies and depends on what you most need your smart phone for. Do you need a device that excels at e-mail or one that’s optimized for browsing the Web? And will the best smart phone for e-mailing or browsing also keep you entertained on a long flight?…

Lets start our Review with none other than “BlackBerry OS

Mobile to look for: BlackBerry Curve 8900

With its BlackBerry Bold, RIM showed us the way forward, while the touch-screen Storm changed the BlackBerry game entirely. But T-Mobile’s BlackBerry Curve 8900 is the best of both worlds. The 8900 packs a higher-resolution screen, an updated user interface, a faster processor, and integrated document editing. It also features the svelte form factor that’s a dead ringer for the small, sleek, and wildly popular Curve 8300 series. Our only complaint: No 3G radio. But free calls over Wi-Fi help soften the blow. Defnitely I say this is a true Champ 8) yeah!!

O.S: Symbian

Mobile: Nokia E71

Lack of subsidized stateside carrier support has caused Symbian fans in the U.S. to lose out. But at least Nokia offers plenty of sleek, capable unlocked handsets to choose from. The Nokia E71 is the best of the lot—by far. It looks and feels expensive, has a very comfortable QWERTY keyboard, and offers comprehensive enterprise e-mail and document editing. Oh, and did I mention that it’s drop-dead gorgeous? 😉

——————————————————————-

O.S: Windows Mobile

Mobile: Palm Treo Pro

Windows Mobile runs on so many handsets that it wouldn’t be fair or accurate to pick just one. Try using the HTC Touch Pro apart from Palm, a powerful, high-end slider with a five-row keyboard, full VGA (640-by-480-pixel) resolution, a touch screen, and a full complement of radios—though all these features are offset by an unintuitive interface. Palm scores big with its unlocked Treo Pro, a shrewdly specified enterprise Windows Mobile-based smartphone, even if the lack of a subsidized, carrier-backed version keeps mainstream users away.
——————————————————————

O.S: Palm OS

Mobile: Palm Centro

Alas, the Palm OS has been relegated to the history books. Consequently, there’s no reason to buy a Palm OS–powered handset today unless you’re looking for a real deal, in which case the entry-level Centro is a solid option. Fortunately, there’s plenty to look forward to on the Palm front: The forthcoming Palm Pre (Sprint), the company’s WebKit-browser–based handset, features a vertical sliding keyboard and an entirely new way to synchronize your contacts. From what we’ve seen so far, we think the Pre will be a master multitasker

O.S: iPhone OS

Mobile: offcourse iPhone

This is one trend setter this days, the iPhone uses an operating system called iPhone OS, which is derived from Mac OS X. Third party applications were not officially supported until the release of iPhone OS somewhere if I remember in 2008. really not such a bad shot at all 😉

——————————————————————

O.S: Android

Mobile: Variants of HTC (Google Mobile)

This OS, though very new, already has a cult following among programmers eager to develop apps for its flexible, Open Source, back end. Android, which was developed by Google, has yet to own even a small part of the smartphone market because of its recent release date. Android is an Open Source, Linux-derived platform backed by Google, along with major hardware and software developers (such as Intel, HTC, ARM, and eBay, to name a few), that form the Open Handset Alliance. Not so bad the try with its feature, never used it though..
————————————————————–
None the least:

O.S: Linux

Mobile: Motorolo / Samsung Variants

Linux is strongest in China where it is used by Motorola , and in Japan, used by DoCoMo. Rather than being a platform in its own right, Linux is used as a basis for a number of different platforms developed by several vendors, including Google’s Android, LiMo, and TrollTech, which are mostly incompatible. Another platform based on Linux is being developed by Motorola, NEC, NTT DoCoMo, Panasonic, Samsung, and Vodafone, as I remember.

So there we go ending another post as usual with some glitter.. I have also setup a poll to rate the O.S from your your view..

Happy Days, C U
