Brain Cancer is NOT From Phones

Brain Cancer is NOT From Phones

Anyone who knows anything about energy knows that the belief that cell phones can cause cancer is nonsense and yet no one in the know has ever come out and said, "You people are idiots." That is until now.

In an effort to dismiss reports like the Time Magazine report that claimed, "a growing band of scientists are skeptical, suggesting that the evidence that does exist is enough to raise a warning for consumers—before mass harm is done," a group of physicists wrote about the hard and firm reasons why cell phones could never cause cancer.

T-Mobile to Finally Start Data Throttling

T-Mobile to Finally Start Data Throttling

T-Mobile mentioned months ago that they were finally going to prefer data throttling over data capping. They even had a rough date of April to begin implementation of the new limitations. We guess something happened inside their headquarters because an internal memo went out this week letting T-Mobilers know that they finally decided to move forward with data throttling starting October 16th.

The usage you'll have to hit at which slower speeds will occur? 5GB. And how slow the browsing will become will be handled by the handset the user has. Don't worry, T-Mobile says this change will only affect 1% of its customers and that, as we could have guessed, the usage tracking resets after each billing cycle, which customers can monitor at my.t-mobile.com

To read the full memo which we have gotten a hold of, follow the break.

Super Mario Bros. Super Embarrassing?

<i>Super Mario Bros.</i> Super Embarrassing?

Super Mario Bros. for the Nintendo Entertainment System hit the quarter-century mark last month and with the advent of HD TVs the game is certainly starting to show its age. I was able to play the game on a 32" HD TV and saw first hand where Miyamoto and his development team cut some corners but seriously, who cares? We are talking about not just "a" game but "the" game that created and changed an entire industry.

Hit the break to find out why Miyamoto was embarrassed.

Foxconn Cons Employees Yet Again?

Foxconn Cons Employees Yet Again?

One of China's largest electronics manufacturers can't seem to stay out of trouble and out of the news. They have a long history of alleged worker mistreatment, wage discrimination and facilitating poor working conditions. All of which came to a head earlier this year when 11 employees attempted suicide. Foxconn then responded by trying to force them into signing, "I promise not to kill myself pledges." However, the most recent controversy stems from recent independent surveys conducted by several universities in China.

Hit the break to find out what the not so clever Foxconn is under the gun for now.

WinPho 7 to Get WinMo 3.1 Feature - Copy and Paste

WinPho 7 to Get WinMo 3.1 Feature - Copy and Paste

It appears as though Microsoft has come to the realization that their new WinPho 7 operating system might be compared to the iPhone 1, 3 and 3GS in terms of what it cannot do. It also appears that they were just kidding when they said people don't copy and paste anymore. That is because this week Microsoft announced that there will be a software update to include copy and paste into Windows Phone 7. You'll just have to wait until 'early 2011' to get it. So don't go opening large Word documents just yet!

For more on the update, hit the break.
