Textitis and the pains of a high-tech world, A Cellular Country Review

Living with mobile phones is truly fantastic for many reasons but sometimes this high-tech world comes with high-tech hazards.

Numerous studies have linked cell phone use with brain cancer and other neurological concerns.  Since mobile phones are sources of electromagnetic fields, the radiation it creates is said to affect the human brain.  According to researchers, prolonged use could cause adverse cell phone effects that can disrupt brain functions, resulting in brain tumors, Neuroma, and other diseases.

Likewise, there have been studies that associate mobile phone use with sperm quality.  It seems that frequent phone use can affect the quality of sperm in men and may lead to infertility.

Perhaps the most common and immediate cause of concern for mobile phones is text-itis. It is not unusual to find someone who texts 100 times a day.  But texting can also cause havoc on the body.

Texting non-stop may cause finger pain and may lead to repetitive strain injury. Sore wrists and thumbs are the usual complaint of people. In addition, prolonged hours on the mobile phone may also cause neck and back injuries, especially if the user lean in too close or hunch our backs for hours.

So how do people beat these high-tech hazards? Cell phone safety must be upheld.

One solution is as simple as minimizing the use of mobile phones… or not. Okay, so maybe it is not that simple especially to those whose lifelines literally are their cellular phones. But if consumers limit their use to simply calling and texting, they can somehow minimize cell phone radiation. If this is not possible, they can put a wired headset instead of placing the phone directly to their ears.  This way, radiation exposure decreases because there is a space between the phone and the body. A wired headset may still transfer radiation but to a small extent. There is also the option to use speaker phone. Just try not to do these if the conversation needs to remain top–secret.

Another way to avoid high- tech pitfalls is to simply switch the phone from one side to the other.

To avoid text-itis, people must not text when their fingers start to hurt. Take a break every now and then. Spread the fingers and stretch them as often as you can.

Mobile phones can enhance communication. But it important to keep in mind that these technologies are there to help not to be detrimental to our lives.

From Pictionary to DrawSomething

Over a year ago, OMGPOP launched an amazing cell phone variation of its previous creation, the Pictionary. The Draw Something works just like Words with Friends and all other sorts of turn based, push notification mobile games on the market. Though the app seems great, a few attributes can still be added to make this program outrageously awesome and perfect. On the other hand, Cellular Country reviews how this app became an instant phenomenon.

Like the previous Pictionary, Draw Something can also be addictive specifically to people who are Arts enthusiast and to those who have been fans of Pictionary.

Draw Something can be easily played with various strangers, online email buddies or Facebook friends. The game works even if the players are not on iDevices.

The first player draws the word they chose. Then their opponent must figure out what the first player has drawn using the letters that was provided for them as clue, and vice versa. Good thing with this app is that both players sees a live, real time match of the game process on their cheap cell phones. Once they guess or fail to guess the word, both players go back to step one.

Used Cell Phones as Means for Survival

Cell phones today are designed for remarkable things. You could chat, text, talk, browse or shop at Cellular Country or in any other online stores all over the world. However, mobile phones’ uses extend beyond the awesomeness of being an everyday gadget. These devices can become a means for survival.

The essential parts so far include the speaker, the LCD screen, the metal, wire, circuit board and lastly, the battery. What you can do with these parts? Let’s find out.

Your cheap cell phones’ battery alone can become a means to create fire. What you basically need is the battery itself, a wire and some combustible material.

Before anything else, make sure that the materials are close at hand for a quicker access. Touch the wire to the positive and negative parts of the battery. The wire will get hot almost immediately. Touch the flammable material to the wire to fire it up. The wire will likely disintegrate in a number of seconds so you will only have one shot per wire.

When building a cutting tool, you will need the cell phone’s circuit board, metal mount and a rock with a smooth surface. Sharpen the circuit board by sliding one side of it on the rock. Break an edge off the metal mount by folding it back and forth while creasing it with rock.

The screen of the phone will have mirror like layers behind it. This could be used as signal mirrors for rescue in case of emergencies. For this, hold the mirror up just below your eyes with one hand and with the other hand hold out a peace sign. Line the mirror up so it is reflecting light onto your fingers. While maintaining the light on your fingers, align the rescue vehicle between your fingers.

Mobile phones speakers should have a magnet that can be an essential in making a compass. Remove the magnet from the speaker. Align the wire. Rub one end of the wire on the magnet for a while then position the wire on the leaf floating in the puddle. The wire and leaf will align so that the end you rubbed will position north.

The circuit board of any cell phone devices when sharpened and cut into an arrowhead shape can also be used when catching food. Cut a notch in the stick and insert the arrowhead. Put a string on the head then tie it up around the middle of a small straight piece of metal mount. For the final stroke, you can put a worm lengthwise as fish bait.

The Cellular Country Review believes that mobile phone technology is indeed integral to humans in all aspects of their lives.
