Are there any documented studies that wired headphones don't cause tumors or cancer?
How much radiation (all kinds) does wired headphones give off?

I know using my smartphone directly to my ear is not safe, and I know the bluetooth is less safe as well, just
trying to figure out about using wired headphones.

Free Tool: SSL Checker

Scans your site and returns information about your SSL implementation and certificate. Helpful for debugging and validating your SSL configuration.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

Every time that a user with a Samsung Galaxy S8 phone enters an area that has a Comcast Wi-Fi cable modem she is always taken to a webpage on her cell phone and prompted to sign in to connect to the Wi-Fi network.

This user is a Comcast subscriber at home but doesn't want to be interrupted with what she is doing on her phone or by receiving beep notifications that a Comcast Wi-Fi network is available.

What can be done to disable these types of notifications?

Or what can be done to save the user's Comcast logon username and password within the phone so that every time that a Comcast Wi-Fi network is within range the user's Galaxy S8 phone will automatically connect without prompting the user to manually sign on?

It is also important to note that I am doing this project on my phone; therefore, solutions available for Android phones will be highly appreciated.

Please reply soon, because the due date for this project is close. Thank you. :)

I have a client whose company has a specific office 365 account for contacts only. The entire company adds contacts to it and it has ~7850 contacts in it. No one has problems syncing to this account on their phone for contacts except for one user. He complains that his sync is completed but his phone shows only 7650 contacts, missing about 200. His Outlook on his PC is showing 7850.

I have had him remove the account and re-add it. I removed the account from the mobile devices list in 365 admin and had him restart his phone to re-sync completely, it leads to the same number when done.  I also checked and he has full access to every contact and group.

When done syncing he says he does have the latest contacts added as well but is concerned about the number shown. He is using a Samsung Galaxy S7, while others using the same phone do not have the issue.

I changed the account on his phone to sync only contacts from this specific account, hoping that it would fully sync, but that did not fix it either.

At this point I can't tell if it is an issue regarding the number his phone is showing or if his account is actually not syncing all contacts.

If you keep the mobile phones safe in your pocket or purse, it's still at risk for picking up a virus or leaking data to thieves. Hackers don't need physical access to your phone to steal your personal information or infect the device with malware. They infiltrate your phone with innocent-looking apps or link to it via unsecured Wi-Fi networks. A Technology blogging site (http://www.mobileblog24.com/ ) talking about this problem. Before some days I take my new phone from online shopping site (https://www.buymobile.com.bd/). Some informative site (http://www.bbc.co.uk/ ) also provide disadvantage of hacking. Now I want to know how can protect my mobile phone from being hacked?

Hi,

I would like to know how I can send messages using an Amazon Echo to a mobile phone as well as being able to call any phone.

In relation to this:

- The phone being called can be landline or mobile
- It would be a call from an Echo to phone and not Echo to Echo
- The Echo should be able to receive message and calls as well as send
- Would it be free to send messages and make calls in this way
- Also, would anything else be needed to make this work

Thanks,
Robbie

I am a deaf individual and have never been able to use the telephone efficiently due to the fact that I need to lipread.  I sometimes hear snippets of the conversation, but not reliably enough to conduct a professional conversation.  I am not the only one in this boat either.

Over the years I have tried assisted typing services and even voice recognition apps, but I am yet to find anything that works effectively.  Last year I obtained a small grant and put this into the development of an Android voice recognition app, but unfortunately it didn't work very well and I ran out of funding.  I was dealing with an Indian firm and I think they were using an off the shelf online service to process the speech, which was very unreliable and led to unacceptable delays in the processed text appearing on screen.  It was clear to me after this experience that I need to work with experts in the field to stand a chance of success.

I've been toying with the idea of setting up a crowdfunding project to help develop an app that can overcome the obstacles faced by millions of deaf people.  But first It would be helpful to obtain opinions from voice recognition experts, for instance, what is the current state of play in the field?  What limitations are we going to face?  What sort of money are looking at?  Obviously I'm going to need to quantify the whole process before I can put it before the crowd funders or investors.  

I'd love to find any interested experts I can work with towards …

I have a color filled rectangle.  I want to animate a shape travelling across the rectangle such that it is not visible beyond the rectangle's bounds, but still appears to be entering and leaving the rectangle.

In WPF this could be easily accomplished by setting the ClipToBounds property to true, but this doesn't exist in UWP :(

Any ideas ?

Hello

We came from an environment where we gave our users Blackberry devices since they needed to make international calls. We have a corporate deal with most carriers we were in.

We want to switch to a BYOD model, but this calling aspect is proving difficult to solve.

I had an idea though -

Let's say UserA is in UK and wants to call UserB in the USA. Standard phonecalls will connect UserA to UserB directly, which is expensive.

However - as an organisation, we have a corporate voice network that connects UK to US. Is it possible for a solution there UserA calls UserB, but the call actually routes

UserA > UK Corporate Phone system > US Corporate Phone system > UserB

That means we only need to pay the carriers local calls?

I believe this is called TEHO (Tail End Hop Off) : http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/about/cisco-on-cisco/collaboration/tail-end-hop-off-web.html

Is this possible using a mobile app? I've seen some solutions like the below but interested in people's thoughts
