" "...Singapore in 2001, there was huge coverage in all the newspapers because 20-year-olds throughout the city were having heart attacks and they couldn't figure out why. Then, someone figured out it was because it was the fashion at that time for young people to wear their cell phones on decorative cords around their necks. This meant that their cell phones were hanging right next to – you guessed it – their heart. So a warning went out in all the local newspapers, telling kids not to wear their cell phones on these cords. But funnily enough, no one I've spoken to in Canada (or the U.S.) ever heard about that." more...

  " steal and pass off (the ideas or words of another) as one's own

  • to use (another's production) without crediting the source
  • to commit literary theft
  • to present as new and original an idea or product derived from an existing source.

In other words, plagiarism is an act of fraud. It involves both stealing someone else's work and lying about it afterward.

But can words and ideas really be stolen?..."

Many people are comparing cell phones and WiFi network usage to cigarettes – which were also once thought to be a “private” choice, but later acknowledged as a public health issue – where your choice affects my health.

I encourage you to review the research and sources below – of the thousands of references available (over 2,000 scientific, peer-reviewed studies), I have included only a few of the most pertinent.

And if you would like a set of “action tools” that you can download and hand out to neighbours, schools, other parents, etc. to help get WiFi removed from your school, they’re all available at my kids’ site:   to this article...

"...Manufacturers of routers and WAPs have introduced a feature that allows users to disable the broadcast of the SSID. On the surface, this seems like an effective security tool to prevent people from poaching broadband. However, stopping the SSID broadcast does not stop the signal from being circulated. Sophisticated computer users have been able to get around this block. The individual computer's wireless access card has its own MAC address and SSID, and users typically do not secure them. The potential exists that an outside user could find this SSID, enter the computer without using a password and either have access to the computer's contents or its Internet connection. Therefore, IT professionals do not recommend this as the only level of network security. ..."  read more...

Windows PowerShell includes an interactive prompt and a scripting environment that can be used independently or in combination.

Unlike most shells, which accept and return text, Windows PowerShell is built on top of the .NET Framework common language runtime (CLR) and the .NET Framework, and accepts and returns .NET Framework objects. This fundamental change in the environment brings entirely new tools and methods to the management and configuration of Windows.


Windows PowerShell introduces the concept of a cmdlet (pronounced "command-let"), a simple, single-function command-line tool built into the shell. You can use each cmdlet separately, but their power is realized when you use these simple tools in combination to perform complex tasks. Windows PowerShell includes more than one hundred basic core cmdlets, and you can write your own cmdlets and share them with other users.

Like many shells, Windows PowerShell gives you access to the file system on the computer. In addition, Windows PowerShell providers enable you to access other data stores, such as the registry and the digital signature certificate stores, as easily as you access the file system.  to this page...

"...NTDetect virus would be hard to remove, if I'm not wrong, it's loaded even before the windows itself, thus, it has nothing to do with registry. As for basic removal of virus - I would rather call it malware, since viruses are less nowadays, and virus don't goes through the registry to infect. To remove malware from the registry normally means removing it from the autoruns entries, so that it won't load itself the next time windows start, that way you can remove the malware itself by deleting it. If you don't do so, you won't be able to delete it while it's still running.

In order to properly do that, you need to

start windows in safe mode,

by pressing F5 during startup of windows. You can keep pressing F5, in case you miss it. By using safe mode, windows will not automatically load any non default app, services or driver. Then you can easily remove those malware. I wouldn't recommend editing the registry directly, as it's quite hard to explain everything here, and it's error prone. Instead, you should use msconfig. Just goto Start\Run then type in "msconfig", and windows tools..." ... follow this article...

Linksys WRT54G Router
;...I have a Linksys WRT54G wireless router. It is hooked up via wire to a PC with Windows XP. That runs o.k. The problem is the wireless, which I connect to via my Mac (OSX).

The signal is very, very weak and the service keeps cutting out, even when the signal is strong.

Regarding the signal, I'm not sure what's the issue. I have connected before and gotten reception from a large house. I just moved to a new apt, which is not very big at all. If I go into the living room, I am out of the range of the wireless. I'm not sure why this is as in previous apts. / houses I have gotten a signal from downstairs when the router is upstairs.

Could there be something in the apartment hindering the transmission of the signal? Does anyone know if I can widen the range of the network?

The second issue is far, far more important far more frustrating. When I am in an area where I can access the wireless (such as my room, which is about 15-20 feet away from the router) , it will frequently cut out.

The network just ... disappears. Sometimes it will be up for 20 minutes, sometimes for an hour. No longer than 2 hours, though. When it dies, it will come back up again, although the time varies (literally) between 5 minutes to one hour to overnight!

I spoke to customer service twice and their solution was to keep changing the channel the wireless is on. I have changed it to several different channels, every time the signal cuts out, and this hasn't solved the problem.

I'm hoping someone has had a similar experience ..." ... read more...


This morning I picked up my Verizon "jetpack - 4G LTE" and within the 'Mobile Network' menu I saw "Network Verizon Signal: - 103 dBm", and ... "Preferred Network - Automatic", and the term "EVDO only", under the heading "Preferred Network". My curiosity was sparked and I said to myself, "What does EVDO stand for and, what does it mean?" ... to this article ...

Cell Phone Dangers, Safety Tips

"Apple still rules the roost when it comes to hardware. Apple’s iPhones are used by a full 28% of all smartphone customers, making them the top manufacturer for yet another quarter.

Meanwhile, use of RIM’s BlackBerry OS has slowly begun to slip: while it previously accounted for 20% of the smartphone OS market, it now accounts for 18%. Certainly not a drastic dip, but the Q3 report doesn’t take into account some of the more recent unpleasantness that the folks in Waterloo have been dealing with.

Surprisingly, Windows Phone’s adoption rate seems to have slowed down as well, as it now only accounts for 7% of smartphones, down from the 9% figure we saw last time. Microsoft and Nokia certainly aim to change that come next year, but we’ll soon see how well their grand designs pan out.

The Q3 results are definitely interesting, but I think the Q4 report is really the one to look out for. New hardware (and OS) announcements are coming at a blistering pace, and it’ll be a hoot to see how the landscape changes after the holiday retail wars have come and gone... ... to this article ...

Digital TVs are not plug and play devices. Unlike old analog model TV sets, digital TVs have to be programmed to pick up local over-the-air broadcast TV signals. The TV is programmed through an operation called "channel scan." If you find that your Sharp Aquos digital TV is not picking up all of the local broadcast channels available in your region, try repositioning your TV antenna and rescanning. If repositioning the TV antenna and rescanning ... "
