iPhone app predicts how much radiation is being emitted by the handset
With Maine getting ready to put a vote on placing brain cancer warning labels on cell phones, it looks like there was a concerned developer looking to do what they can presently to make iPhone users aware of the radiation being emitted by their smartphones. For all you know, you could potentially by holding a ticking time bomb in your hand and you wouldn't even have the slightest clue. One app-development start-up called Tawkon utilizes the hotly talked about debate about cell phone radiation and created an app that predicts the amount being emitted by the iPhone. Although it actually does not measure, hence why there's more emphasis on predicting, it comes up with an approximate assumption based on factors such as how far you're away from a cell phone tower. Despite being considered as a useful item, it has yet to be approved for the App Store – it's probably going to take some convincing by the developer to get it through the approval process. We'd surmise that Apple wouldn't be too thrilled about iPhone owners getting an inkling that their beloved handset is in some way, possibly, bombarding their faces with some invisible forces. Looking outside the iPhone, the developer is also looking to get a similar version approved for BlackBerry and Android handsets.

This stuff is getting way out of control. T.V. will rot your brain, sweets are bad for you, now your phone will cause brain cancer. Who cares, just do what cigarette manufactures do and just place a stupid label on the box and get over it. If you want a cell phone then buy one... It just seems that there will always be a flipside to everything that everyone's doing and there's always going to be one person who wants to ruin for everyone else... I just don't get it...

its essential! it would be nice if medical science and technology went the same pace.. but they dont. the technologies we come out with have unforeseen consequences. They used to use lead regularly in the past, unkowning it was making people insane and killing others. A common pesticide used to dust crops turned out killing people.. these are useful things to know. if you grow an arm off the side of your face in 15 years your going to think, i wish someone would have said or prervented this and then you'll slap yourself with your newly acquired arm. point is, when you dont know the possible affects something can have on you it is extremely important to be caustious. its not goin to stop people from buying phones just caustious about how much they use them.
