Magnetic Device Lets Smartphones Test Your Blood

Star Trek communicators were often compared to cellular ” flip – phones ” not TOO terribly long ago. I know. One my phones is a ” flip phone ” that resembles a slick bar of soap when closed. Smart – phones will begin to resemble the tricorders of the well – known science – fiction staple in the not – too – distant future.

Now if I can just get the smart – phone I got as a Christmas gift to work as it should. Big, fat, fingers & smooth touch – screens do not a good combination make, always. 🙂 I had similar trouble with an iPad that I sold back to my cousin for extra Christmas money after finally losing patience ( & finding out that the Wi – Fi in this area was beyond sucky, as well. ).
