I’m gettin’ too old for this shite
My pala told me yesterday that her new TV tells her who is on the fone when it rings. WTF?!? Then a voice repeats what is written on the screen. Whyinhell would I/anyone want that??!? I had that dang thing put in for my convenience: if I actually sit down to watch something on TV, I do NOT answer the fone. [unless it's MiL][which is what answerfones are for]
Nokia is proposing “a material attachable to skin, the material capable of detecting a magnetic field and transferring a perceivable stimulus to the skin, wherein the perceivable stimulus relates to the magnetic field.”
…a future phone could emit a different magnetic field depending who is calling, or if your battery is running low, or you receive an SMS, for example.
… “ink enriched by ferromagnetic or paramagnetic compounds”
