Leave it to insurance companies to “CYA” themselves in advance, lol. At least in this case of cellphones & health issues they can’t cry, “It was an Act of God!” (At age 17 right out of high school, 1970, I was the dictaphone typist for the Claims Manager of a conglomerate of insurance companies. That’s where I first learned that insurance companies try to blame everything on God so they won’t have to pay up! I must have typed that phrase hundreds of times. Did it rain too hard today & your roof caved in? Too bad for you because it was “An Act of God!” Too funny!)
But seriously, hurray for the lawyers who sue insurance companies & industry corporate wolves. In the below news, it is a class action re cellphones & brain tumors & the fact the cell industry has tried to hide what it knew was dangerous, & the insurance companies are jumping ship! (Will ObamaScare step in to cover the health of all the owners of the freebie cells he gave out? Somebody should sue Obama, period, for just being alive, but that’s another story).

Insurers stop covering for cell phone use, called the next ‘casualty catastrophe’ after tobacco and asbestos; phone manufacturers hit with a class action and personal lawsuits; and the warning deep inside your mobile.
Seek truth from facts with Ellie Marks, whose husband Alan is suing the industry for his brain tumor, ‘cell phone survivor’ Bret Bocook, leading radiation biologist Prof. Dariusz Leszczynski, Microwave News editor Dr. Louis Slesin, Storyleak editor Anthony Gucciardi, and former senior White House adviser Dr. Devra Davis.
Full long story & text interview at above link.
Catching up on one of my newer RSS feeds there was an article from the Netherlands re how much more dire 4G/LTE will be than 3G because 4G/LTE is stronger (great for speed, worse for health, just as I figured)! Then the next article was the one further below re LI-FI! Brilliant! Bring it on! (before we all shrivel up & die from wi-fi as did those plant sprouts exposed to wi-fi as shown/reported a few months ago by 9th grade girls doing a school science project).
MEIZU MAYBE, BABY!
Do newer USA smartphones have individual settings to TURN OFF 4G & LTE? & only use the 3G mode? If not, I might have to buy a foreign/Chinese-made phone called MEIZU MX3 which I just heard about within the past few days & which does not offer 4G/LTE because China doesn’t have those frequencies yet. So it only has 3G built-in. Since I’m used to 3G speed via AT&T anyway & which has worked fine for the most part for over four years (only bogs down once in awhile), if I never “taste” 4G/LTE, I won’t know what I’m missing & won’t “spoil” myself.
Meizu’s just-announced in Sept. 2013 “MX3” model is the WORLD’s “FIRST EVER 128 GB” onboard ROM smartphone (not via SD Card add-on). Yes! 128gb!!! Just what I had hoped Apple would release this Fall but didn’t. I need a hand-held workhorse gadget! You can keep the games, notifications, sounds, buzzers, ringers, biometric scanners, etc., even the phone part. All I need is a huge HD, hand-size, with tons of organizable notes apps, non-unibar browsers, mail app, & SOME in-built WAY TO ORGANIZE PHOTOS into Project Folders!
Meizu’s 2012 model, the MX2, got great reviews for the most part (one guy in SanFran asked, “How did I ever miss hearing about this beauty?”) as being a high-quality hardware build like iPhone but allows flexibility via Android OS. The best of both worlds!
A description I was reading of the MX2 re its build & specs said Meizu built in an extra cover/coating to help protect the user from EMR (electromagnetic radiation). Excellent! Of course you can’t cover up the RFR (radio frequency radiation) or you would not be able to connect to the internet at all (see LI-FI invention below!) But hey, extra EMR protection for now is better than nothing!
Another thing I liked is Meizu still uses polycarbonate (plastic) backing, like my white iPhone 3Gs (& the newer same-size 32gb iPhone 5c’s). Well-built plastic feels very solid, balanced, & sturdy in the hand, unlike the tinny lighter-weight metal backs that all the fanboys & manufacturers are now craving/using/producing.
If those Apple & Android fanboys would stop & think instead of acting like a mindless herd of cattle, they would realize that metal acts like a blocking shield to radiation (think: Tin Foil Hat truism expression). So a metal back on a phone will help PREVENT radiation from diffusing itself evenly in 360 degrees as it should & will instead CONDENSE & CONCENTRATE all the radiation TOWARD THE FRONT, ie, toward your FACE & HEAD!
So give me a PLASTIC-BACK smartphone anyday which will allow the RFR to emit outwardly 360 degrees in a more diffuse fashion as it should, than having a metal-back phone which will block emission out the back & push most of the radiation toward my face & head! I’m no engineer but it only makes sense (& my conspiracy-side says maybe that’s why the big boys are now making metal-back phones!) Would you rather have less radiation on your hand that holds the phone & more of it shooting at your face, head, brain? Or would you rather have the radiation diffuse itself more evenly all the way around, lessening the intensity of it toward your head? It’s a “No Brainer.” :D
And I think it was at Wiki I was reading re the upper echelon Chinese “elite family” who founded Meizu. Funny because it reminded me of the article several years ago by Ben Fulford(?) that claimed the “Chinese Illuminati” said they were going to “go after & take down” the European & Western Illuminati that was destroying the world, lol. So far that hasn’t happened… unless they were referring to cellphones, ha, then maybe they will!
Now the problem is, how can you buy an MX3? They are not even available yet for China until November & who knows when for USA. A third-party seller at Amazon offers last year’s MX2, as does a site called Boxwill, but clones (fakes) have been reported on the market so you’d have to be aware of that. There is an English Meizu Forum for discussions, but the official Meizu site for ordering is in total Chinese with no USD-$ option that I could see (via Google translate which didn’t work very well at all).

Shanghai Fudan University develops new Li-Fi technology

Shanghai’s Fudan University has made a breakthrough with the development of “Li-Fi” technology, in which a one watt LED light bulb can help connect four computers to the internet simultaneously, reports the local Xinmin Evening News.
Compared with an average internet connection speed of 150 megabytes per second (Mbps), the new technology — which uses light as a carrier instead of traditional radio frequencies used for Wi-Fi — can also generate speeds as fast as 3.25 gigabytes per second (Gbps), the university said.
The current wireless broadband connections are expensive and less efficient, said Xue Xiangyang, a professor at the university’s Department of Computer Science. He cited the example of wireless services in mobile phones, where although there are many base stations set up to help increase the signals, efficiency rates are as low as 5%. On the other hand, LED lighting, which could be used to replace traditional devices, can provide a safer and cheaper solution by adding a microchip on the bulb, Xu said.
The Shanghai Committee of Science and Technology asked Fudan University to work on key applications to help develop the information industry last year, and the university will now showcase ten computer samples using the new technology at the Shanghai Industry Expo next month.
Chi Nan, a member of the research team, said that Wi-Fi, which depends on an invisible wave, has the hidden danger of electromagnetic radiation, while with Li-Fi technology, the light spectrum is 10,000 times more than the radio spectrum and it does not require any new infrastructure construction. He added, however, that there is still a long way to go before Li-Fi can be used by thousands of households as it would take time to manufacture a series of products, such as the connection control and chip at a mass production level.
Chi said that Li-Fi should not be treated as a rival to Wi-Fi connection but rather as a complementary technology, as the Li-Fi connection may be disrupted when the light is blocked.
Wouldn’t THAT be fantastic!
So we hope God will update Himself & say:
“LET THERE BE LIGHT! (vs wifi) for Safer Connection to the Internet!” :)
