The last big growth opportunity for mobile devices is in the medical field. Mobile is already a powerhouse for communication, entertainment, and as an information hub, but the work is still in progress to make medical devices more mobile. We've seen theoretical work, but this story is a pretty impressive practical application, because scientists were able to use a hacked-together iPhone microscope to diagnose intestinal worms...

Could've gotten much more done with a note 2 microscope and split screen apps.

Should'a used the 808!!!
They would'a seen "lossless" worms and even the viruses in the worms.

Yup. You are not allowed to criticize or even point out the WELL KNOWN flaws in apples novelty products, he will remove them. Biased "reporter" (and I use the term as loosely as possible, I've seen more journalistic integrity in a jr high newsletter) is biased and admittedly does not even research things before schlocking together a biased, often innacurate "story".
