8 GB iPhone 3GS Inbound?

Register Hardware's James Sherwood says:

"Screenshots of documents entitled 'Rogers 8 GB iPhone transitioning to 3GS' were picked up by website Boy Genius Report and seem to hint that the retailer's running down its stocks of the 3G, while also adding an 8 GB 3GS to its inventory."

5 Parent-proof Reasons You Need an iPhone

Macworld's Dan Moren says:

"Going off to college can be scary, especially if it's your first time on your own. But you know what makes it less scary? Getting your own iPhone. So, kids, here are five great reasons you can use to convince your folks that the one thing you absolutely need when going off to college isn't a laundry bag or clean towels, but the most advanced smart phone on the face of the earth."

Mobile Phone Text Messaging Is Making Children More Impulsive

The Telegraph Science Correspondent Richard Alleyne reports:

"Researchers believe the mobile phone system makes youngsters less thoughtful and more prone to making mistakes elsewhere in life.

"Hitting a few keys and then seeing the desired word appear in full trains children to be fast but inaccurate when doing other things, according to scientists.

"They warn that the effects of this could have repercussions on a whole generation...."

Texting Makes Kids Faster but Dumber

The Register's Bill Ray reports:

"Predictive text is making kids lazy and inaccurate and the collapse of civilisation can only be prevented by bringing back multi tap.

"The idea that using predictive text is making kids more impulsive and less patient is apparently borne out by a study from Professor Michael Abramson of Monash University, Melbourne, Australia."

Mobile Phone Use Associated with Changes in Cognitive Function of Young Adolescents

An abstract published in Bioelectromagnetics on a study directed by Michael J. Abramson, School of Public Health & Preventive Medicine, Monash University, The Alfred, Melbourne, Victoria 3004, Australia and funded by the National Health Medical Research Council of Australia reports:

"As part of the Mobile Radiofrequency Phone Exposed Users' Study (MoRPhEUS), a cross-sectional epidemiological study examined cognitive function in secondary school students. We recruited 317, 7th grade students (144 boys, 173 girls, median age 13 years) from 20 schools around Melbourne, Australia. Participants completed an exposure questionnaire based on the Interphone study, a computerised cognitive test battery, and the Stroop colour-word test. The principal exposure metric was the total number of reported mobile phone voice calls per week. Linear regression models were fitted to cognitive test response times and accuracies. Age, gender, ethnicity, socio-economic status and handedness were fitted as covariates and standard errors were adjusted for clustering by school. The accuracy of working memory was poorer, reaction time for a simple learning task shorter, associative learning response time shorter and accuracy poorer in children reporting more mobile phone voice calls. There were no significant relationships between exposure and signal detection, movement monitoring or estimation. The completion time for Stroop word naming tasks was longer for those reporting more mobile phone voice calls. The findings were similar for total short message service (SMS, also known as text) messages per week, suggesting these cognitive changes were unlikely due to radiofrequency (RF) exposure. Overall, mobile phone use was associated with faster and less accurate responding to higher level cognitive tasks. These behaviours may have been learned through frequent use of a mobile phone."

iPhone surveyWould You Give Up Using Your iPhone in the Car for Increased Safety?

The iPhone Blog's Rene Ritchie says:

"Our sibling site, TreoCentral.com, reminds us about the NY Times report that even hands-free cell phone (including iPhone) use while driving radically increases the risk of accidents....

"TiPb's curious what you think about talking on the phone while driving, and what, if anything, you think should be done about it?"

iPod Dying? Does Apple Care?

PC World's Todd R. Weiss says:

"The beloved and oft-copied iPod MP3 music player has been a huge part of Apple's bread and butter success since the first edition launched in 2001, but iPod sales revenues are apparently dropping and being eclipsed by revenues for Macs and iPhones.

"So does that mean that the iPod is dead? Could it be? Will the iPod go the way of Pontiacs, Edsels, and steam locomotives?"

iPhone Cut-and-Paste: Mysteriously Improved?

IT World says:

"The iPhone's cut-and-paste functionality was one of the most long-awaited features of iPhone OS 3.0....

"But what I found when I downloaded iPhone OS 3.0 was that cut-and-paste actually made my iPhone text experience more irritating....

"I had been meaning for a while to write a blog post about this on a slow Apple news day . . . so I got out my iPhone and my digital camera in an attempt to document my irritation. But lo and behold, every time I tried to reproduce the problem, the cursor acted exactly the way I wanted it to...."

Mobile Calls Cheapest in Finland, Netherlands, and Sweden; Highest in US

Finland, the Netherlands, and Sweden have the lowest prices for mobile phone calls among OECD countries, according to the latest OECD Communications Outlook. The highest rates were found in Canada, Spain, and the United States.

Comparing prices on a medium-use basis for a package of 780 voice calls, 600 short texts (SMS), and eight multimedia (MMS) messages, the survey found monthly prices ranged from $11 to $53 dollars across countries as of August 2008.

The report adds that text messaging continues to be a particularly lucrative market for operators and that recent marketing developments are increasingly offering SMS-based packages targeted at young subscribers.
