I have my hot little hands (OK, big hands) on three new smart phones/PDAs/Cameras/whatevers that look very impressive so far.  I will report on each of them in more detail in the near future.  The three I am playing with:  Palm’s new  Treo Pro (sleek, slim, light and running on Windows Mobile 6.1, unlocked GSM);  the Blackberry Bold (for about a week the hottest Blackberry around, amazingly better visual presentation and a very nice physical thumb board, currently available from AT&T); and the very impressive (already my favorite Blackberry, the Storm (no physical keyboard, but multiple virtual keyboards, excellent graphics, and a touch screen you have to try to believe.  It actually gives you a physical click response to a key press).  Anyway, I will keep you posted on how they do as I test them in various situations and put them through their paces. tonalin cla gnc chitosan performance enhancer Dirty Sanchez: The Movie hd

IS THERE A BLESSING FOR THE SAR?

In a scene from the musical “Fiddler on the Roof“, the Jews of Anatefka understanding that Judaism has a blessing for everything ask the Rabbi “Is there a proper blessing for the Czar?” He pauses and then chants: “May God bless and keep the Czar… far away from us!” Although the spelling and the meaning may differ, the principal is the same. ‘Keep the SAR far away from us’.

“SAR”, an acronym for Specific Absorption Rate, relates to the body’s absorption of radiation emanating from a mobile phone. Intermittently, we hear frenzied concerns that cell phones cause brain cancer. Studies to date have proven largely inconclusive. Accordingly, I have not found them convincing one way or the other. Remember, however, that the cell phone has only recently become a part of the daily routine of such a large portion of humanity. We will know a lot more in 30 years, but by then, many of us may already have suffered irreparable damage. Don’t forget that people did not consider cigarettes dangerous to health for a very long time. While I intend to monitor the results of future studies, prudence suggests implementing some precautions in how we use our cell phones. bronchitis cipro

In the US, the FCC imposes a SAR limit of 1.6 watts per kilogram (”W/kg“) over a volume of 1 gram of tissue. Europe uses a standard of 2W/kg averaged over 10 grams of tissue. Many phones have come out first in Europe and then later in the US.

For some time, people have purchased unlocked GSM phones in Europe and brought them back to the US. If you wish to reduce exposure to SAR, you may want to wait until new models come out here.

The theoretical danger comes from the fact that basically, the RF waves ”cook“ tissue by heating it. While use of the cell phone held up to your ear for short periods of time may pose a minor risk, logic dictates that, if the risk exists, the longer you hold the phone by your ear, the more likely that brain tissue near the ear will suffer heat damage. Does this mean that we should all dump our cell phones or that the Surgeon General should require a warning printed on the back of the phone? Probably not, but, common sense suggests that we should exercise some caution. RF waves dissipate over distance. The farther that we keep the phone from our body, the less likely that it will cause any problem for us. Using the phone’s speakerphone and keeping the phone on a desk or table when you talk offers one way of reducing exposure. As Bluetooth uses a lower power, it poses a smaller risk and, therefore, using a Bluetooth headset and keeping the phone in a brief case seems prudent. A wired headset does not generate radiation, but generally results in keeping the phone closer to our bodies.

Selecting a phone with a lower SAR also should reduce the risk of exposure. CNET has a nifty chart showing the 10 highest and l0 lowest SAR rated cell phones in the US and also providing information about other phones on a lookup basis. You can access the CNET chart at http://reviews.cnet.com/cell-phone-radiation-levels/?tag=lnav. I found it somewhat surprising that there appears little consistency within manufacturers and that some of the highest SAR phones had siblings in the lowest category. depakote numbness

Battle for Haditha movies According to CNET, the representatives in the highest category include several Motorola phones, one from Samsung and two versions of the Blackberry Curve.

The 10 lowest included phones from Motorola (two iterations of the Motorola Razr the Razr V3x and Razr2 V8), five phones from Samsung and two from Nokia. The Palm Centro models ranged from 0.74 to 1.35 W/kg, while the Treo models ranged from 1.26 to 1.5 W/kg. The original Apple iPhone came in at 0.974 W/kg and the iPhone 3G rates a 1.38 W/kg. Memory size appears to have no impact on the ratings. The Blackberry Pearl models lists at 1.22 to 1.48 W/kg.

Palm Centro

I have tried the Centro on the Verizon and the ATT networks. It works well on both, providing all the features we have come to know and enjoy on Palm devices in a smaller and more compact form. Conquest of the Planet of the Apes psp I replaced my Treo with a Centro and have not missed the Treo’s bulk. The Centro’s screen is not as large as the Treo’s and I can’t read the screen without my glasses; but I couldn’t read the Treo’s screen without my glasses either, even though it is a bit larger. That is a function of my own age and diminishing near vision and something that moste of us will have to live with as we go kicking and screaming into the next phases of our lives.

The Centro handles eMail fairly well (I prefer the Blackberry and the iPhone to the Centro for eMail, but it does give you a good basic eMail service that many will find satisfactory).

The only real knock I have on the Centro results from the diminutive size that I like so much about it. I have thick fingers and that poses a bit of an issue with the very tiny keyboard on the Centro. I have finally developed reasonable skill with it, by learning to use my fingernails to strike the keys. The shape of the keys is so curved that fingernails work better than trying to use a stylus or a pen. Waking the Dead film I do not type as fast on the keyboard as I can on others, such as the Blackberry or the older and larger Treos; but I still like it better than the Treo. It runs on the Palm OS and works pretty well as a phone on both the ATT and the Verizon systems. For those of you that travel internationally, Palm offers it for direct sale in an unlocked GSM version.

Verizon and ATT have very favorable pricing for the Centro in conjunction with two-year contracts.  Without the contract, you can get the Centro directly from Palm.  The last time I checked, ATT offered the Centro for $69 with a two-year contract, Verizon offered the Centro for $99 with a two-year contract and Palm sells the unlocked GSM version for $299.

If you do not want the features of Apple’s iPhone, but still want a solid phone/PDA combination, the Centro may prove a good choice for you.  It does have the ability to store music, photographs, documents and other information;  it also works with FileMaker mobile and a large number of other programs that developers have built for the Palm OS platform over the years.
