the ipad 3 and iphone 5 will both have 4G LTE

So there’s a rumor going around that when released next year, both the iphone 5 and the ipad 3 will be have 4G LTE.

The report indicates that Apple CEO Tim Cook has already met with executives from Japanese carrier NTT DoCoMo to discuss next summer’s 4G iPad 3 and next fall’s iPhone 5. The timing works out; Japan got the iPad 2 in late April this year, about about six weeks after the US. And with Apple moving to a fall release schedule with the 4S, new iPhones and fall go together like hot fudge and sundaes. But in a broader sense, the timing works for Apple’s leap into 4G. Peppy network speeds are quickly becoming table stakes for Android hardware, phones and tablets alike. And while the iPhone 4G trades speed for better battery life, Cupertino simply can’t afford another year on the sidelines.

So theres a possibility that China has twice as many nukes as we thought….

Nuclear-armed countries, for obvious reasons, like to keep tabs on other nuclear-armed countries. According to a new Pentagon study, it looks like China’s got twice as many nukes as we once thought, obscured by the country’s vast underground nuclear missile tunnel network.

 

Unlike the US and Russia, who mainly store nukes in immovable underground silos, China’s got a large network of underground tunnels across the country that allow nuclear missiles to be transported underground via rail to be propped into position in a number of locations. But it turns out that this network is much bigger than previously thought, meaning China’s probably packing twice as much heat.

your wifi enabled computer is killing your sperm…

So there has been research that suggests that having a warm running laptop on your lap for a long period of time damages your sperm count, but now there is some new info coming out that says that your wi-fi connection is probably doing the same thing.

The study, published in the journal Fertility and Sterility, collected sperm samples from 29 healthy men, aged 26 to 45. Each of the samples were then separated into two pots. One set of samples was placed beneath a laptop connected to the internet via Wi-Fi as it downloaded information, while the other set was stored under identical conditions – including temperature – but away from the computer.

The researchers found that exposure to the laptop resulted in a significant decrease in sperm motility and a significant increase in DNA fragmentation. Around 25 per cent of the sperm in samples exposed to the laptop stopped swimming compared with 14 per cent of those kept away from the computer. Similarly around nine per cent of the sperm exposed to the laptop showed DNA damage compared with three per cent in the control samples. The researchers, from Eastern Virginia Medical School and the Nascentis Centre for Reproductive Medicine in Cordoba, Argentina, suggest that the electromagnetic radiation, and not heat, given out by the laptop was the cause.

In the study, the laptop connected to Wi-FI emitted 7 – 15 times more electromagnetic radiation than background levels, they said. “Our data suggest that the use of a laptop computer wirelessly connected to the internet and positioned near the male reproductive organs may decrease human sperm quality, they wrote.

“At present we do not know whether this effect is induced by all laptop computers connected by Wi-Fi to the internet or what conditions heighten this effect.” The scientists concluded: “The mechanisms mediating the decrease in sperm motility and DNA integrity also need further study.”
