In the link below, there is some mildly interesting reading about new antenna designs that promise reduced radiation. http://www.wirelessnewsfactor.com/perl/story/13850.html And speaking of antennas: I am seeing more and more people "fiddling" with their phones while not in use. One of the most interesting is the practice of sticking the tip of the antenna in thier mouths. I see this mostly with retractable antennas that people grab with their teeth and then pull and shove the antenna in and out. This is not a safe thing to do <u>even</u> with the phone in stand-by mode.
