Thank God! I can still use my cell phone while filling up my gas tank. I get soooo bored standing around for those five minutes.
Wired is reporting that the email that's been making the rounds for a while about cell phones causing bodily harm is an urban legend.
"It is in fact an urban legend," Larson said. "We have not come across a legitimate news source that has reported that gasoline or gas fumes are being ignited by a mobile phone."
I really enjoyed this statement. It just shows how little silly we can be when it comes to fear and understanding technology...
"Likewise, the claim that a 'cellular-phone ringer uses more than 100 volts for excitation' is a curious artifact of the regular telephone era: Cellular phones don't have ringers. They produce audio tones that simulate the sound of a ringing telephone."
