Mobile Phones Linked to Autism

You will get struck down by lightning if you use them, they will fry your brains. You can even cook your eggs with them. Now mobile phones have been linked to autism.

Dr Richard Lathe, a molecular biologist in the UK, has suggested in his recent report that the rise in autism in Europe can be linked to old mobile phone batteries. The heavy metals that seep from poorly disposed old batteries, correlates to the rise in autism. Are we doomed, is this the end of the personal telecommunication revolution?
Probably not. Oh, did I tell you that mobile phones can also cause hearing loss and blindness

50 Million Motorola V3 Razr's Sold

Since its launch two years ago in 2004 in Hong Kong the Razr has grown to dominate the mobile phone market.

It has been the slimmest, the coolest, the most colourful. It has brought functionality to the masses. With very clever marketing the Razr has never given way to the competition.

Constantly re-inventing itself first by bringing out new colours. Pink, lime-green and magenta are to name but a few. Then a leap by partnering itself with must have iconic brands such as Dolce & Gabbana.

Never only a mobile with a MP3 function, the Razr V3 iTunes has to be an Apple iPod. Sales have now topped 50 million units world wide. Where will it end I ask, will it ever end. Here is to the next fifty million. Long rein the Razr in what ever guise we see in the future.

Samsung RAZR'ed

The Swedish giant, Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications, announced this week that its profits for the second quarter nearly doubled as global demand for its Walkman music phones soared. Shipments of handsets increased by 33 percent on the year to 15.7 million phones, cornering the greater part of the international market share as sales growth outpaced the industry average.

Along side this success, Sony Ericsson stated that it will concentrate more on selling lower-end mobile phones, a sector that is dominated by Nokia and Motorola. Sony Ericsson is planning to boost it's global market share on both ends of the spectrum.

The good times however are not shared by all companies in the business, pacifically in the last quarter. The South Korean, Samsung Electronics, reported on Friday that net profits fell 11 percent to only $1.59 billion in the latest quarter, its worst performance in three years, which it attributes to the heightened competition in the mobile-phone sector.

The world's third-largest mobile-phone manufacturer had been facing pressure in recent months from rivals including the success of Motorola's RAZR and the latest Nokia models that have cut into Samsung's market share.

CarSpotter and Parker's SMS Price Check both offer vehicle price checks by sms/text message.

Parker's, a UK publisher of car pricing guides, introduced its SMS Price Check in 2004. To check the price of a car, users text the word 'price' and the license plate number to 80806. Parker's then texts back exactly what model and year the car is, and what the going prices are if purchased new or second-hand, in good and in bad condition, plus what the trade price is. The service is accessible on all mobile phones and all UK networks, and is charged at GBP 1.50 per valuation.

Dutch CarSpotter also offers consumers price information by sms to guide them through sales and negotiating. Besides year, make and price, CarSpotter sends users details on a vehicle's maximum speed, horsepower and acceleration. Although the service was meant to improve price transparency and the balance of information between dealers and buyers, it turns out that people also use CarSpotter for fun, texting their employer or neighbour's license plate to find out how much their car is worth. CarSpotter also works for motorcycles. CarSpotter valuations are priced at EUR 1.50, and the number to text to is 2020.

Both services are great examples of catering to consumers' infolust: making information available to them wherever they need it most, accessible through whatever channel or device they prefer, so they can get, in this case, the best possible vehicle for the best possible price. Or at least have something to pass the time while stuck in traffic. ;-)
