Firefly Vs Migo – Choosing A Cell Phone For Your Kid

This article is designed to provide a review and comparison between the two leading kids cell phones: the Firefly and the Migo from LG (the TicTalk will not be discussed). Designed to equip consumers with the latest reviews this article will provide a brief analysis about the pros and cons regarding these two cell phones. Let’s get started….

The Firefly has been out for a while, mid-2005 exposed the Firefly plans and towards Q3 of 2005 the Firefly was coming onto US markets namely on the Cingular network. The GSM enabled handset appealed to the kid audience through parents by offering basic features on a simple phone. The added ‘security’ appealed to parents hence the rush for other manufacturers to produce a similar device. Lo and behold, LG was next inline offering their version called the Migo. The LG VX 1000 Migo is a CDMA enabled handset and operates on the Verizon network.

This article doesn’t look at the practicality of the devices, but compares the two against each other; which device should you buy if you had the choice. Since both operate on different networks this means if you’re already with a carrier your choice may be restricted. As stated, the Firefly operates on the GSM network (T-Mobile, Cingular, Rogers), and the Migo operates on the CDMA network (Verizon, Sprint, Telus? or Bell?). The thing with GSM phones is you could potentially purchase it ‘unlocked’ and activate it on any GSM network provider of your choice. You cannot do the same with CDMA. If you’re purchasing for the first time and will choose between the two networks (Cingular and Verizon in the States) then the rest of this review will help your decision making.

Weighing in at a paltry 56 grams, designed to accommodate smaller hands, the Blue and Pink Firefly measures 1.75 x 3.46 x .79, weighs 2.12 ounces, offers up to 2.5 hours of talk time, and up to 100 hours of standby; a bare bones 850/1900 MHz GSM cell phone that permits parents to limit outgoing calls to certain numbers and also sports ‘mom’ and ‘dad’ buttons for quick dialling.

Conversely, the green Migo measures 1.77 x 3.42 x 1.07 weighs 2.4 ounces, offers 4 hours of talk time, but unfortunately no prepaid options are available with this phone. Network: CDMA; High-Speed Data: 1xRTT; remember, neither phones have Bluetooth, cameras, or any additional features common on regular phones. The phone also shows 5 buttons for quick dialling and emergency dialling.

Pro: Firefly. With the Firefly you can limit who calls your child based on a pre-programmed list. The Migo does not offer this security feature so essentially junior can give the number to friends and get them to call. The Migo only permits 5 programmable outgoing call numbers while the Firefly list enables 20.

Pro: Migo. The Migo works with hearing aids. Also, the second antenna is for eventual GPS support, where that goes we won’t know, but it is an additional feature on the Migo.

Con: Both phones are designed to give the bare phone essentials. However, they are candybar styles, which means the Firefly antenna is located within the phone unit and does not protrude out. This means cellular frequencies are closer to the brain. The question now revolves around how early is too early for exposing kids to cellular frequencies on a regular basis? On one hand you don’t want to risk your child’s health, on the other hand scientific research is still inconclusive when it comes to cell phone ‘radiation’. The juror is still out on this one, be your own judge regarding the health impacts. The Migo’s SAR rating is 0.915 w/kg when held up to the head, below the legal limit of 1.6 w/kg and also below the Firefly’s level of 1.322 w/kg. The Migo antennas are outside of the phone as well.

Conclusion: Both phones offer pretty much the same features and are built in the same way. If you’re on a network already and just want to add a kid phone then it’s Firefly for GSM and Migo for CDMA. Simple. If you’re getting a phone on a new network then it seems the Firefly wins by an edge.

This article did not investigate the durability of the phones because they are both so new (the Migo especially), nor does it look at the sound quality. Both phones are near equal in this respect, however, the Firefly seems to be built stronger and the Migo appears to have marginally better sound in preliminary tests. Remember, a teen will not enjoy these phones for their basic nature, but your young child may benefit from the added security. Firefly seems to offer more in this security detail. So for now, points to Firefly, barely.

Electronics and Stress from Electromagnetic Fields

As I was preparing to write my article about electromagnetic fields and the effects that it has on us in our everyday lives. I realized that everyone is exposed to emfs in their daily lives, unless they live in a very remote area and are only surrounded by nature. We are literally surrounded by electromagnetic fields from the power lines that bring electric to our homes and work places, to our vehicles, phones,
electronic toys and computers and for some people their medical equipment. We cannot escape it, unless we choose to live in a remote area.

While researching the effects of electromagnetic fields, the information that I found was backed up by many studies. One of the studies comes from the National Institute For Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). In some work places or in areas where there is the presence of power lines, electromagnetic field exposure can be 10,000 times greater than the average. Studies have determined that there are correlations between various diseases and living near high voltage power lines or working and living where such EMFs are present. In some studies where people have been exposed to average and above average exposure to electromagnetic fields the following diseases have been associated, childhood leukemia, adult leukemia, clinical depression, miscarriage, neurodegenerative diseases such as amyotrohic lateral sclerosis.

As we continue to increase our use of technology there have been concerns about the effects it has on the human biofield and a persons general health. A strong biofield can help nourish and support bodily functions, as well as help individuals deal with stress. With our body rhythms being bombarded by manmade unnatural electromagnet fields, our bodies natural healing and coping mechanisms can be compromised. According to the US National Institute of Health (NIH) the biofield is an ensemble or matrix of different energies that extend outward from each persons body.

Clarus Transphase Scientific, Inc. has developed products that help to provide the body with a range of electronic frequencies that help support and optimize its own energies, thereby helping the individual achieve higher states of well-being and performance in a variety of ways. The positive effects are more energy, less stress, greater focus , more stamina and improved well-being. Q-Link SRT products range from pendants, bracelets and USB products.

I have been wearing a QLink SRT-3 pendant for one and a half years and have consistently experienced these effects and more. My family all wear the QLink pendants and we are grateful for the benefits that we have received. The benefit I especially am grateful for is less stress. I am a person who does not like change and there is so much going on from weather, world issues , finances and everyday life challenges. The other benefits are more energy, greater focus, more stamina and improved well-being. In the past when I was very stressed and overwhelmed it was extremely difficult for me to function and get things accomplished. The reason that I write about this product is that it is an invaluable tool that can help people with stress relief and achieving greater balance in their lives without the use of medications, which come with expense and negative side effects.

Digital Microscope Camera Some Important Facts

There is another world that is waiting to be discovered through the lens of a digital microscope camera. Many people do not realize that we are living in the world of the tiny. The tiniest of all organisms outnumber every other living species on Earth today more than a billion to one.

Those who are working in the field of science or medicine know this fact and do what they can to study it. The most important of all tools to study the extremely minuscule would be a microscope. The microscopes we have today are much more powerful than those we had a few years ago.

Today, we have high definition digital microscope cameras that is more than capable of giving us clear images of the truly tiny. It is much easier to use when compared to a traditional microscope and it gives scientists a much easier time studying their specimens.

It is also much easier now to take photographs of microscopic objects since these are connected to a computer which aids the user when navigating around the petri dish. While today’s average digital microscope camera gives you the best value for your money, the microscopes that are currently in development will surely provide much better quality and offer better image visibility than these.

A digital microscope camera is an excellent tool for both education and research purposes. Whenever you are looking for one, be sure to ask yourself what you will be using it for in order to get one that is ideal for you.

The average hobbyist will not need professional equipment like a professional researcher would and the standard digital microscope camera should be perfect for this kind of person. Those who are interested in what lives among us invisibly will surely be able to appreciate these tools.

Cell Phone Buying Guide

Buying a cell phone should be easy, right? All you need to do is go to a store and buy a handset that you like. Well, it is not quite that simple. You not only have to select a handset, but also have to select a provider or carrier. And with so many choices available today, it is not that simple to buy a phone.

CDMA Or GSM

It is often recommended that you should first select a provider and then mobile phone. This is important because in the United States, wireless carriers operate on two different networks. One is known as Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) and the other is known as Global System for Mobile Communication (GSM). Since both these networks use different technology for the transmission of voice and data, one cannot buy a GSM cell phone and operate it on CDMA network and vice versa.

So the first thing you have to do is choose between CDMA and GSM. CDMA phones provide good coverage, especially in the rural areas. However, if you are somebody who often remains on the move, then you should opt for GSM carrier. GSM phones are used in Europe and other countries. Moreover, if you opt for GSM, you will have a wider choice of handsets.

Pay Plan

Once you have selected a cell phone provider, you have to choose your plan. You can opt for prepaid phones. This means that you have to pay for the service beforehand. Once you have used up your service, you can recharge the same.

Whether you buy prepaid or post paid plan, make sure that you read the fine prints carefully before you sign on the dotted lines. Make sure that you know the cell phone rates that you will be charged. Also, find out if you have to pay extra in the event you terminate your contract before its expiry date. Also, make sure that you are aware of the extra fees that you will be charged for making international calls and for activation.

Selecting The Phone

Once you have selected your service provider and plan, you are ready to select your cell phone. Depending on your budget and needs, you can opt for a cheap cell phone or an expensive one.

Today, most of the mobile handsets are loaded with features. Make sure that you select the features you need. Why should you spend extra on features you are never going to use?

In other words, if you need a handset for only making calls, then select the one with basic features. However, if you require a handset for e-mailing, browsing, and organizing, then you need to buy a high-end handset. Obviously, this will cost you more.

Handsets with features, such as camera, music player, streaming live TV, video streaming, 3G, and Bluetooth, are usually expensive.

Besides the features, you should consider the style of the cell phone. Do you prefer a flip phone or a candy bar phone? Are you more comfortable with slider phones? Whichever type of handset you select, make sure that you are comfortable using it.

See how it holds against your ear. Is the text clearly visible? Is it easy to use the keyboard? Basically you need to test the phone before you buy it.

Finally, do not forget to judge the performance of the phone. In other words, the handset that you select should have a good call quality, battery life, and photo and music quality.

A careful consideration of all the aforementioned factors will help you buy a cell phone that you will be satisfied with in the long run.

How Does A Film Camera Work

A Frenchman named Louis Lumiere is frequently recognized for inventing the first motion picture camera. In 1895, he invented the Cinematographe a portable motion-picture camera, projector and film processing device, all in one invention. Motion pictures started to become very popular after the introduction of Cinematographe. Of course it didnt stop there. The technological era produced various and more sophisticated equipment for the movie industry. Movie cameras have significantly evolved for the last century. But how does a film camera work? Read on the rest of this article and see for yourself

A film or movie camera works by capturing a series of images. This is in contrast with still cameras that take a snapshot at a time. These series of images is called a frame and is achieved by using a sporadic mechanism. The frames are then replayed in a movie projector at a certain speed, known as frame rate (the number of frames by second). So actually, the film camera and your eyes and brain are responsible for creating the illusion of motion by merging the individual pictures. Commercial films like those produced in Hollywood uses the standardized frame rate of 24 frames per second while the standard width 35 millimeter. Other film formats that are also widely used include PAL, plays at 25 frames per second and NTSC (common in Japan and North America) at 29.97 frames/s. People in the movie industry find rendering from one format to another as one of the technical difficulties they have to face.

Majority of film cameras in the market do not capture the sound internally. The sound is record independently using a precision audio device. This setup is referred to as double-system. There is also the so-called single-system. These are new film cameras that have either an optical or magnetic recording apparatus inside. If you have seen those clapper boards in film production with the guy holding it and yelling these words Title of the movie take 3 action, they not jut simple boards. Aside from the fact that it normally starts a take it used as a reference point in synchronizing the picture with the sound. Furthermore, it allows scene and take numbers or any other important details to be included on the film itself. Currently, the most frequently applied system is unique identifier digits displayed on the border of the film. This whole process is accompanied by a computer editing system. Every film stock manufacturer has its own name for such identification system, Kodak call their version as KeyCode. There are cameras as well that have low-accuracy film systems. They are some dubbed as non-sync or MOS. MOS cameras are used in for second-unit work and other jobs that do not require standard filming speed. The most widely used 35 mm cameras today are Arriflex, Moviecam and Panavision versions. PhotoSonics is used in high speed filmmaking.
