So why stop by any of the Phone Medic stores for FREE cell phone cleaning? Well, according to Kevin Loria, Tech Insider, most cell phones host a wide array of bacterias that can be a contributor to flu bugs, respiratory infections and other illnesses. Think about it. A study done by Deloitte showed that on average, people touch their cell phone 46 times a day and smartphones (iPhones, Androids, Samsung Galaxy devices) several times an hour. Teenagers check their cell phones far more often. Kevin states that every time you touch your phone, you transfer bacteria that you've picked up as you've gone about your day. You might keep your phone in your bag, on your desk, or in your pocket, but chances are it spends an increasingly large portion of the day in one very dirty place: your hand. You hand may include little microbes you’ve encountered while clinging to subway poles, opening the bathroom door, or touching your kitchen sponge. Plus, anytime you speak or cough with your phone near your mouth, you'll load it up with whatever happens to be living in your respiratory tract. A microbiologist and pathologist, Philip Tierno, states “It is wise to periodically clean your phone. I clean mine at the end of each day. If you’re not cleaning your phone, you should.” To learn more about the importance of phone cleaning, come by any of the Phone Medic locations near you.

Wireless communications are connecting vehicles to each other, to the surrounding infrastructure, even to bicyclists and pedestrians, according to Huei Peng. He states that the death of a person earlier this year while driving with Autopilot in a Tesla sedan, along with news of more crashes involving Teslas operating in Autopilot, has triggered a torrent of concerns about the safety of self-driving cars. But there is a way to improve safety across a rapidly evolving range of advanced mobility technologies and vehicles -- from semi-autonomous driver assist features like Tesla’s Autopilot to a fully autonomous self-driving car like Google’s.

The Next Smartphone: Who Wants a Modular Cell Phone?Would you buy a smartphone composed of several modular and interchangeable components that slide and magnetically click into place based on your unique needs? Like if they break, or perhaps just need an upgrade? Well, a dinky little startup called Google seems to think so, and for quite a while now their Advanced Technology & Projects (ATAP) group has been developing an open, modular smartphone platform called Ara that runs on Android. Here's a live demo from almost exactly one year ago today at the Google I/O event. In fact, at the ATAP's session during Google i/o later this morning, we may very well catch a glimpse of how real, or how far away this concept is from reality. Project Ara is just a portion of the ATAP group, which has undergone several changes in the last year, including restructuring and large shifts in management that may have either accelerated, or derailed the project. Either way, the stellar lineup for the talk, and the subject of swapping out your cracked cell phone screen or upgrading the camera module just like a battery? Pretty compelling. Guess we'll have to wait a few more hours to see for ourselves if we actually want a modular cell phone someday. Or as Steve Jobs would say... just didn't know we already wanted one till we held it in our hands. Till then, here's a mind blowing Verge post showing some of the the crazy modular phones you can build on Project Ara. Finally, here's the "modular" piece from the original article by NPR that inspired our post today is here below, as well as a link to their full write-up. Hope you enjoy! The Modular Approach In 2013, Dutch designer Dave Hakkens launched a project that chased that very dream — of a cool, but everlasting phone — for environmental reasons. "I 100 percent started this to reduce the amount of e-waste ... so I'm definitely in the tree-hugger group," Hakkens says. "And that's still the main goal — try to have a phone that grows with you but doesn't generate that much waste." His project, Phonebloks, was a concept of a modular phone — a device that's built sort of like a 3-D puzzle, with each component like the screen, camera, battery and processor all easily detachable and replaceable on their own.
