With the smart phone more and more popular and the increase in sales and the competition more fierce than ever:
Do we know everything about them?
Are they really a necessity in today’s world?
Are we getting a fair deal in Canada?
Here is a post from Neil on the subject.

DO CELLPHONES CAUSE BRAIN CANCER?
After studying the matter for 10 years in 13 countries including Canada, the experts have come up with a puzzling answer about mobile phones and cancer.
Here is the bad news. Heavy cellphone use, defined as chatting on mobiles for more than half an hour a day over 10 years, was associated with a 40 per cent increase in risk of a rare and deadly brain cancer known as glioma, the same kind of cancer that killed Senator Kennedy.
The good news is that the study also found that low and moderate amounts of cellphone use seemed to offer a modest protection against developing the disease.
This means that the debate over cell[phone use is unlikely to go away soon.
The fact is that using a cellphone amounts to placing a small radio transmitter next to your head, exposing the brain and ears to microwave radiation.
Do you use cellphones?
Are you concerned about a risk of brain cancer?
Would you stop using cellphones for that reason.?
