Radiation from your iPhone?

By on May 9, 2014 in Car Phones, Health & Safety | 0 comments

  Are your gadgets harmful to your health? Can your iPhone cause cancer? Before you start to panic, read on to learn about what cellphone radiation is, how it affects your health and what to do to protect yourself. What is cellphone radiation? Cellphones transmit and receive calls from network towers using radio waves. Other everyday gadgets like radios, TV’s and microwave ovens also use the same technology. All these gadgets emit low frequency radiation that is non-ionizing – which is not really harmful in small amounts. The harmful ionizing kind of radiation, like X-ray, messes with electrons that mutate cells and cause cancer very fast. The EMF radiation that is emitted by any digital device is very quickly dissipated with distance, so if you put some distance between your body and your phone… even a few centimetres, it is usually enough to reduce the effect. However, cell phone radiation, although non-ionizing, is a special case because we use and keep phones so close to our body for very longer periods of time. Whenever we stick a phone to our ear to make a call, the brain is exposed to radiation in small amounts. Is it bad for me? In short – yes. Pretty much. Although a long term effect is not yet scientifically proven for sure, there are two problems you should be aware that have been repeatedly demonstrated. Blood erythrocytes clustering Our brain has a very diverse network of tiny capillaries that deliver oxygen in our blood to different sections of our brain. Our neurons need to eat and breathe. Those capillaries are really tiny and under the influence of low intensity EMF, the erythrocytes in our blood tend to form some tight clusters. They can no longer fit into those tiny blood vessels and they simply create a plug that closes these particular blood vessels forever. After that, this particular part of the brain is dead forever since it can no longer get oxygen and food. This happens very gradually since this exposure is very small. If it accumulates in one area where the cell phone has the greatest exposure, it will create a tumorous growth in time, especially in addition to the second problem… Heating...

App of the Week: Cycloramic

By on May 7, 2014 in Car Phones | 0 comments

  Cycloramic has been our favorite panoramic app since before the sharks tried to eat Bruno, and each other, in that Shark Tank episode that made this the most popular app for iPhone lovers across North America. What does it do? Cycloramic creates 360° panorama pictures by taking high resolution photos of scenery as your iPhone5 goes around in a circle all on its own (no hands!). It takes around 14 pictures total for the 360° view which it then stitches together to recreate the whole scene that can be viewed thru the app’s immersive 3D viewer. The innovative hands-free feature, which uses a kind of gyroscope and the phone’s vibrate functions to turn bit by bit to take pictures, is the patented technology that made this app a winner for the sharks, and us here at SecurOMax. Watch the clip from Shark Tank: Place your iPhone5 upright on a flat smooth surface and watch it do all the work for you. You can even clap or whistle to signal when you want it to start shooting! The hands-free function only works with iPhone5/5s, thanks to its’ flat base. When there is no flat surface around, the guided mode is also easy enough to point and shoot and the pictures come together seamlessly. This guided mode also works for iPads and iPhone 4 or 5c that do not have a flat base. Other apps from the same shark bait (or the Cycloramic family of apps): Cycloramic          $1.99 Shoots 90°, 180°, 270°, 360° panoramas Photo editing tools from Aviary: filters, adjustments, stickers, frames etc. Converts photos to videos Guided and Handsfree (for iPhone 5/5s) modes Quick sharing functions to social media.   Cycloramic Pro  $2.99 Does everything above, with extra features like 4xHD and White Label included. selfie360               Free This is Cycloramic’s younger sister that takes panoramic pictures of scenes with your selfie as the focal point! It has 3 modes you can play with for animated selfies: 1. Portrait captures a panoramic selfie of your profile by taking several shots starting from your left profile to the right. 2. Panorama lets you take a selfie with a moving panoramic photo of the scene behind you. 3. Full 3D Selfies...
