Gone are the days when a cell phone was used for nothing beyond calling and texting. Today, we have smartphones, and their versatility is undisputed. They take photos and videos, send emails back and forth, allow us to access the web, and run apps of all kinds. They have become a tool for handling finances and for managing agendas. They can entertain us when we're bored and they can find us when we're lost.
Did you know, however, that a smartphone could also diagnose your car, read chips embedded in documents, and even act as a do-it-yourself microscope? If this has made you raise an eyebrow, then these peculiar jobs a smartphone can perform might surprise you. Just flick through the slideshow below to learn more. And as always, your comments are greatly appreciated!

i have used #9 before for a land survey. we had one of the pins and the owner said there was a pin on the other side of the yard. we knew how far from the pin we had so we used a lawnchair to get a distance. sure enough after a little digging we found the pin in that general area.
