So apparently it really does cause cancer! Today the World Health Organization stated that cell phone radio radiation can increase the risk of developing cancer. Apple is going to be peeved about putting that surgeon general sticker on it’s pretty iPhone 5. We’ll cover this more in depth as information becomes available.
The Doodle 4 Google online art contest public voting is now open for the top 40 regional finalists. The competition was opened to K-12 graders across the US of A and has drawn, no pun intended, some amazing talent. Google has over 100,000 entries being narrowed down to an eventual national champion. The national winner will receive a $15,000 college scholarship, trip to Google New York, laptop, Wacom digital design tablet and a $25,000 technology grant for their school. These kids have done exceptional work!
So… Go vote now (voting ends May 13th) and look for the national winner’s doodle on May 20, 2011 on the front page Google.com.
It seems iOS 4.3.3 is out today and is fixing all of the data tracking issues we mentioned in the blog (as did others). This little update will not only delete the cache on your local machine, but on the phone altogether once you disable location services. Apple can put this very mild problem at bay now and focus on more important things like June’s WWDC.
Apparently Apple is releasing an iOS update that will stop all the data tracking. BGR is reporting that the fix could be out in as little as two weeks and will delete the consolidated.db file every time the phone is synced. The update will also not store information as long as the old iOS version did (which was infinite.) hit the source after the break for more details on what iOS 4.3.3 will bring.
