According to an eWeek.com report, the U.S. Senate under the leadership of Iowa Sen. Tom Harkin, Chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee is planning to study links between cell phone use and cancer. Previous studies have been mixed as to any possible links between the two. According to the Environmental Working Group some of the best phones (least radiation) are the Samsung Impression (SAR at ear—.35 W/kg) and the Motorola RAZR V8 (SAR at ear—.36 W/kg). The two worst are T-Mobile myTouch 3G (SAR at ear—1.55 W/kg) and the Blackberry Curve 8330 (SAR at ear—1.54 W/kg)
Jajah@call is launching in beta form on Twitter this morning (9/17) according to cnet.com. The service allows Twitter users following each other to make voice calls via PCs and/or mobile devices without giving up actual phone numbers. Calls will be limited to two minutes, a restriction that the company sees as a verbal equivalent of a 140 character tweet. Facebook users also recently got the ability to communicate via voice using Vivox. Consumer reaction to the new apps is still unknown, but if reaction is strong it is likely the apps will become integrated into the respective networks.
