Forum: Electronic Gadgets Galore

  1. Do microwave ovens cause cancer?

    I've been thinking about this for quite a while due in large part to the fact that with so much of my hearing about cancer I can't help but wonder about new technology mixed with the fact that I've read that micro waves from space are very much cancerous so I ask! Perhaps someone knowledgeable...

  3. Star Trek's tricorder finally reaches the shops

    After a 2 year wait of a Kickstarter campaign which raised, I think, around $2m, in which I didn't participate, I just bought a "Scio molecular sensor". It pairs with a smartphone, creates a visible to infra-red absorption spectrograph and compares it to an on-phone library of known materials,...

  5. Buying into the whole touch screen craze...

    Have you already bought a touch screen cell phone or thinking about it? Seems every phone company has their own version of the touch screen phone, that all look like an iPhone! I like the Motorola Krave because it gives a new look to the touch screen phones since it's also a flip phone: What...

  6. Submarine detection by gravitational anomaly

    That's what the BBC reporters claim anyway. Bosh. Bogus nonsense. How on earth is that true. Your underwater submarine displaces its exact weight of water. If it didn't it would sink. The principle of buoyancy applies. So how is a gravity measurement, either from the sea floor or the surface,...

  10. I, For One, Welcome Our New Robotic Overlords

    Autonomous cars, robo-butlers, robotic checkout lanes. I'm okay with all of it. I'd personally enjoy reading sleeping or watching a movie instead of driving. Especially on long trips.

  12. Review - Samsung Galaxy Ace (GT-S5830i, 832MHz)

    I've had several cellphones, all pay as you go. The first had an extensible aerial and I forget who made it but it lasted me eight years. Then I had a succession of identical builder's bricks - the Nokia 5210 with the rubber case - there are two on my desk still with active SIMs. A few months ago I...

  15. Sony Play Station 2

    I am seriously thinking about buying a PS2. The range of games and activities are good and my grown up kids and my grandchildren use them so I can borrow the games (and save money). Anyone else got one of these ?

  16. Phone Number Hijacking

    My phone number has been hijacked and is being used for spoofing. Apparently, all the numbers being spoofed with my phone are in the (717)314 number range which is the same as mine. Any ideas or suggestions?
