This one’s a double header!
First, I quickly review the new Nokia 2720 Flip 4G dumbphone.
Then, I talk a bit more about exactly why dumbphones that run KaiOS are really NOT smartphones.
Did I mention that the 2720’s HUGE buttons are an absolute joy to use?
Or that it’s the first phone (of any kind) that I’ve had in years that actually fits in my pocket?
You all know I’m not a big fan of wireless due to the health risks.
I’ve also said before that resources should be devoted to making these wireless technologies safe – so that we don’t have to just ditch it all!
But then, the question is: Is EMF ever safe?
Better yet, are there examples of EMF / radio frequency energy being used to possibly even HEAL people?
It turns out, there are! And it’s all pretty interesting…
Last week, I published a video entitled 4G Dumbphones: Get one with KaiOS!
In that vid, I talked about why KaiOS is a great OS to have on a 4G dumbphone.
Quite a few people asked various questions, like:
But hang on, isn’t that just a smartphone disguised as a dumbphone? But if it has Google, how is that different from an Android smartphone?
And so on.
So this week, I want to dig into some of the details of KaiOS and why it is NOT your daddy’s smartphone.
One year ago, I advised against getting a 4G dumbphone with KaiOS. I am officially reversing that recommendation!
After purchasing a Nokia 8110 4G and playing with it for 1 month, I’m actually pretty speechless, and that IS rare.
Despite Google’s investment of $22 million in KaiOS over 1 year ago, Google’s services remain “add-ons”. IOW, KaiOS has NOT become Android Lite.
KaiOS is KaiOS, and there’s some Googley stuff on the phone that you can either use, or not. Better yet, you can block the Google apps from doing much of anything.
They’re known as power bricks, wall warts, AC Adapters, AC-DC Converters, and probably 10 other names – and they power many of the gizmos you use every day.
But what happens when a gizmo stops working right?
You may think it’s the gizmo itself, but very often it’s the power brick.
It may look complicated, but it’s actually pretty straightforward to get a universal power brick and set it up to breathe new life into your techie toy.
Until now, apps were for smartphones and tablets. But that’s all about to change with PWAs: Progressive Web Apps!
PWAs are a new(ish) type of app that is web-based.
That means you can use the same app on your phone, tablet, desktop, or laptop – whether you use Windows, linux, or Mac.
Progressive Web Apps also work differently than normal apps, making them a bit more secure and privacy-oriented than traditional native apps.
So, what are these things and how do they work?
It seems there are some common misconceptions out there about what 5G actually is and how it will work.
I wasn’t planning on another 5G video, but alas…
Much of this confusion is totally understandable since info is hard to come by despite the fact that 5G and IoT is the talk of the town!
Near the end I also toss in a few recent news stories related to troubles that 5G is causing or will cause.
You’d think they’d check this stuff out first BEFORE spending all that money… But then you remember that this is Planet Earth in 2019.
Ah yes, the Mobile Revolution!
In desktop web browsers, you generally get a web inspector / debug console that lets you do all kinds of fun stuff, including debugging your JS code.
But on mobile, well, no such luck.
In fact, most mobile browsers give you absolutely nothing! Fortunately, there’s a neat trick that fixes everything.
Many people have asked me about the Q-Link and other similar gizmos.
You’re supposed to simply wear them, and they strengthen your body via “resonance” such that you are even protected from the negative effects of all kinds of EMF.
Well, I used to think that was nuts… Until my doctor friend said she loves hers!
So, I decided to take another look. It had been almost 20 years since I first decided they were just snake oil. Plus, I suppose with age comes the knowledge that we’re not always as smart as we think we are.
It turns out that the result of using these things is actually rather interesting…
There’s a lot happening on the 5G front.
From petitions, to cities temporarily halting their 5G rollout, to senate hearings, to nation-wide days of protest, things have been pretty busy!
In this video, I talk about one particular petition that I think summarizes everything quite nicely.
I also flesh out some details and connect some dots to show just how ridiculous the whole charade really is!
