“When better features mean worse ethics, should we change what we buy?
An Amazon Echo is across the room, and I’m playing a recording of the wake word “Alexa” over and over again at various decibel levels. It’s a relatively simple test — one that I’ve performed in some shape many times over the years — and I’m consistently impressed. Smart speakers like Amazon’s growing roster of Echos and Google’s Home and Nest devices, it turns out, are really good at listening to you. Like really good.
In testing the newest Echo Dot, for instance, I could stand 30 feet away and speak at a low level, and Alexa would still respond. But could a better design make a smart speaker worse for the customer?
There’s not a simple answer to that question, but it’s a question we need to be asking nonetheless — and not just about smart speakers…”

10 Examples of Electromagnetic Energy
Where are exposures coming from and what can we do about them?
- Nature and direct current
- Basic electricity and dirty electricity (Alternating Currents)
- Radio and TV towers
- Smart Phones
- WiFi / Routers / Bluetooth
- Cell Towers
- Light, light, light
10. Gamma Rays and Cosmic Rays.
A little + a little + a little = a LOT.

Berkley California: (Where some notable revolutions and thinking has come from) passed The Berkeley Cell Phone Right To Know city ordinance, requiring sellers to inform customers that keeping a device in a pocket or bra could lead to radiation exposure that exceeds federal guidelines.
For years, cell-phone manufacturers have vigorously resisted state and local government attempts to require warning signs about radiation exposure even though their own user manuals advise caution about carrying or holding the phone close to your body while it’s transmitting. These warnings are buried deep in the tiny print of cell phone manuals…

Why do we do what we do? Because we want to help people, especially the most vulnerable people, children.
So we wanted to share this:
“The Wait Until 8th pledge empowers parents to rally together to delay giving children a smartphone until at least 8th grade. Smartphones are distracting and potentially dangerous for children yet are widespread in elementary and middle school because of unrealistic social pressure and expectations to have one.
These devices are quickly changing childhood for children. Playing outdoors, spending time with friends, reading books and hanging out with family is happening a lot less to make room for hours of snap chatting, instagramming, and catching up on You Tube.”
Around here we’re usually sharing some other brilliant people’s articles and research. But it’s worth mentioning again that we also have an amazing resource, and if you haven’t read it yet, it’s well worth the read. And it could save your life.
