    If it was dangerous, it could not be sold. As it is, your kid is exposed to 10x more radiation from all the cellphones if he takes the MRT. :P

    Typical nocebo response as people often associate non-ionising electromagnetic radiation with ionising electromagnetic radiation.

    Why bother about that measly FCC Title 47 CFR: Part 15, Class B digital device? Singapore has one of the highest density of electromagnetic radiation emitters in the world with literally hundreds if not thousands of mobile phone Base Transceiver Stations (BTS), not to mention the dozens of radar system in use among all the civil and military aerodromes and seaports.

    All this on top of the four or five major antenna farms and the four satellite earth stations operating high powered radio transmitters and parobolic antennas in the hundred kilowatt range 24/7. If there is even any life threatening adverse effect (which I hardly doubt so) from the long term exposure to these electromagnetic radiation, there just could be epidemic cases of cancerous mass outbreak in the Singapore population decades from now.

    placing laptop on ur lap when sited if ur r a man is a big no no. kills ur bullets of life. proven, on news & papers. they say it is due to heat.

    but they never say how it will affect growing boys.

    for ipad, maybe same thing?

    That's a pretty awkward area to place your laptop, far more an iPad. I suspect you'd get neck pains first from staring in the direction of your crotch for hours!
    Heat does affect fertility, but if it's that much of a concern, probably more effective to switch from briefs to boxers.

    i-poh, the iPad isn't a cellphone, so it isn't actively putting out radiation. Yes, all electronic devices emit radiation, but it's stray radiation -- a miniscule level compared to the 0.5-2W your cell phone puts out. It should be about the level of most notebooks

    Correction: Laptops/notebooks do actively emit radiation (WiFi and Bluetooth), but these are much lower power (0.03W or less) than cellphones.

    If that concerns you so much, you shouldn't wear a brief in hot and humid tropical Singapore either as already suggested by Edwin Francis in the previous post. Imagine your microscopic "bullets of life" or tadpoles swimming around in a sauna environment headless.

    To prevent ipad radiation I soak my hands in water which has been boiled with lotus seeds and banana leaves for 3 hours before using it.

    I also wear a Monkey God charm for anti-radiation.

    Oh damn, this reminded me of the time when people actually pasted "anti-radiation" sticker to the back of their phone.

    Wouldn't it have been fun if they actually worked?

    IIRC, the market share of mobile cellular network and paging services was dominated by "Singapore Telecom" and SunPage back then with M1 and StarHub having just ventured into the cut throat arena that will culminate in consumers paying worldwide record subscription prices for EPL and World Cup matches.

    no need stickers for that lar, bad design like iphone 4 does the job very effectively.
