Now will this be a balanced  form of reporting or will it be  a sensationalist piece of crap which  these programs are renowned for??

Tip for longevity - keep phone away from head as much as possible. I use speaker phone on nearly every call, you can start there.

Support a locally made Linux based Operating System, try Linux Lite.

Is my cellphone killing me? Probably, but not nearly as quickly as my alcohol intake, cigarettes or fatty diet will. Not to mention my genetic predisposition to any one of dozens of possible cancers.

I wonder if those Bluetooth 'jawbones' doo-dads would be worse than cellphones seing that they're in proximity to your scone 10 hours a day with no breaks. Think they'll cover that in their exposé?

The electromagnetic radiation from those gigantic speaker setups in cars must be in with a shout of earning their own sensationalist doco on imminent deathness as well as deafness...

I could go on, (well many say I do go on, so I'll stop now...) :D


Edit: typo

Galaxy S has gone to its new owner. HTC Sensation has gone to its new

Even if using a cellphone does kill some people, how would the number of people who die as a result of using a cellphone compare to the number of people whose lives were saved as a result of having a cellphone (e.g. drive a car off a cliff, call for rescue)?

I'll get in now to say that the outcome will be:

"There's no definite link, but we should definitely keep looking."

Or some variation of this.
