12/26/2008 Cell Only Households Growing

Nearly 18 percent of households in the United States have no traditional telephone and rely on wireless services only, which is up several percentage points from a year earlier, the government said on Wednesday.

In the first half of 2008, 17.5 percent of households were wireless only, up from 13.6 percent a full year earlier, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

12/24/2008 Nanotechnology Imacts Cellular Technology

Nanotechnology may someday expand your cell phones range while improving its battery life if a prototype transistor from IBM gets to market.
Researchers at the company are using nanotechnology to build a future generation of wireless transceivers that are much more sensitive than the ones found in phones today. They will also be made with a less expensive material, according to IBM. The catch is that the new chips probably won't make it into consumers' hands for another five or ten years.

12/23/2008 Mobile Spy

Paranoid types with trust issues have reason to celebrate, as Mobile Spy--a hybrid software/service that spies on smart phones--has finally infiltrated the iPhone.
Mobile Spy allows the account administrator to implant an undetectable rat inside the iPhone.

It then squeals to a server, which is accessible via the Web. Mobile Spy records SMS messages and inbound and outbound call info, including call duration. That means if you want to see what your employees are texting in real-time, or how long your teenaged daughter gabs with that kid from down the street, you can now do so for $100 per year.


12/22/2008 Texting is a Sign of Recovery

Doctors at some of the UKs busiest music festivals say a young patient's ability to use a mobile may be a good test of how ill they are. Each year hundreds of festivalgoers who have either fainted or suffered panic attacks are treated in medical tents.  

Medical teams noticed that as soon as they were well enough to text their friends, they were generally well enough to rejoin the action.

Texting is a Sign of Health

12/15/2008 FCC Cell Towers

The White House has rejected a plan by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission to require eight hours of backup power on every cell-phone tower in the country.

The FCC proposed the rule in 2007, after Hurricane Katrina caused service interruptions on the Gulf Coast. The Office of Management and Budget, an arm of the White House that oversees federal regulations, said it rejected the rule because the FCC failed to get public comment on it.

The plan has drawn opposition from the mobile industry, led by the industry group CTIA, which has sued to stop it. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit had postponed its ruling on the suit until after the OMB released its decision.

12/04/2008 Mobile Phones Biggest Driver Distraction

Mobile phone calls distract drivers far more than even the chattiest passenger, causing drivers to follow too closely and miss exits, U.S. researchers reported on Monday.

Using a hands-free device does not make things better and the researchers believe they know why -- passengers act as a second set of eyes, shutting up or sometimes even helping when they see the driver needs to make a maneuver.

12/03/2008 Fuel Cells on the Horizon

Laptop, cell phone and iPod owners tired of having their devices run out of charge after a few hours have been patiently waiting for the next portable power source to arrive.

Tiny fuel cells, powered by combustible liquids or gasses, have long been touted as the eventual solution. Potentially, they could power a laptop for days between refills.

But fuel cells have perennially remained a year or two away from reaching the market as companies have worked on making them small, cheap and long-lasting, while making sure they do not overheat. The U.S. government removed a key roadblock this year when the Department of Transportation amended its hazardous materials regulations to allow cells with methanol, butane or formic acid to be carried on airplanes. Methanol and butane are flammable, and formic acid is corrosive.

12/01/2008 Blackberry Storm Attempting to Blow Away iPhone

Hundreds of people lined up at some Verizon Wireless stores on Friday to buy the BlackBerry Storm, the first touch-screen phone from Research In Motion that aims to compete with Apples iPhone.

More than 200 people had waited at a Verizon store in mid-town Manhattan early in the morning, many of whom were turned away after it ran out of the new phones less than an hour after opening at 8 a.m. The angry customers caused a ruckus and police came to restore order.
