Remember a few years back when there was a huge concern over the amount of radiation our cellphones were emitting? I can’t even tell you how long it’s been awhile since I’ve read a FUD piece on how our smartphones are slowly cooking our brains into oversized chicken nuggets. I’m not gonna lie to you guys. Whenever I hold my Android device up to my head to make a call, there’s always this little voice in the back of my head telling me that 1. I could be giving myself brain cancer and 2. “Redrum” (whatever that means).
Today I found out that if you’re a Galaxy S3 owner, the chances of you developing a tumor on the side of your head with human teeth are significantly less than, say, I dunno… an iPhone user who, chances are, could be making a trip to their local neurologist sometime soon. Don’t take my word for it. The guys at Tawkon are experts at this sorta stuff and they recently released this infograph breaking it all down for you.
Tawkon made headlines not too long ago when they released an app for iOS that was quickly removed from the App Store after the results didn’t exactly display the iPhone in the best light. No worries, their beautifully designed app can be found in the Play Store where you can monitor your cellphone radiation and even compare your exposure with your friends. Good times.
Poor Samsung can’t catch a break. I smell a lawsuit from Apple.
actually the court just ordered apple to post that Samsung din’t copy them on their website LOL
I would’ve never expected the 4S to be so high, but it has GPS, GLONASS, GSM, CDMA, WiFi, etc.
Poor iPhone users…. All the more reason to make the switch >:D
That was my first thought.
Mmm…. bbq sauce.
Definitely bbq sauce..
@617164e6e19f325367e2d154eb8d3b0e:disqus : so does the Samsung GS III… More, GS III has NFC and FM…
Chris here’s an idea for your next article http://gantdaily.com/2012/07/19/uk-judge-rules-that-apple-must-publicly-apologize-to-samsung/
Someone else posted that one already! Freakin’ hilarious though.. Especially since Apple was directly sending retailers letters to stop selling Samsung products xD
i know right lol
I love how Apple jumps to get rid of any app or feature that doesn’t claim the iPhone/ipad as the beat at everything regardless if its the truth or not.
This is SOP for Apple. They don’t like something, they just get rid of it. Thankfully Google/Samsung/Moto/HTC etc are too big for Apple to just “get rid of” how they’d like.
Heres my analogy for Apple
You’re like the smart kid on the playground that has smarter kids come in and play. The new, smarter kids develop new ways to play with the same equipment. You get jealous and mad that you didnt think of it…so you go beat them up for stealing your ideas!
“…the chances of you developing a tumor on the side of your head with human teeth are significantly less than…”
Love your writing Chris, If only you were a girl O_o
I’m sure he can put on a nice dress for the right price! :-D
“This application requires access to:
Things that will cost you money:
Make phone calls directly”
Not sure why they would need that permission so app not installed.
Ok… the brain cancer thing from cell phones is just stupid. Even the way this article is written it clearly sounds like it’s not proven and even with that… if it was an issue we would already know about it.
I think it’s time to drop it and never talk about it again. It’s going to turn into the smoking thing at this point. “smoking does this, smoking does that.”
