a quantum physical information wave
I'm not sure what one of those is but I think I'd rather have whatever comes out of the phone being blasted at my head than that
Do you remember our E-Waves anti-radiation chip story from last week? Well, the retailer behind the device has since withdrawn it from sale because of doubts over its capabilities. Belgian pharmacy chain Omega Pharma has since said that, following launch of the E-Waves chip, a “storm of protest broke out during which …
Press at high pressure but with no added heat. The oil that flows at this stage can be called Extra Virgin Snake Oil. Take the pressings and pass via a centrifuge. The oil that comes out at this stage can be sold as Virgin Snake Oil. The spun pressings can now be heated and treated with hexane. This is last extract process gives just plain old Snake Oil.
"storm of protest broke out during which scientific proof of doctors and professors was brought into doubt" - nothing wrong with that except that scientific proof is, of course, usually considered to be intractable. the only way it could not be is either a) someone's made an honest mistake in their hypothesis or measurements or, heaven forbid, b) some company made up a press release purporting results that have subsequently been uncovered by a real experiment. uncovered that is, by the kind of science experiment concerned with the actual advancement of human knowledge and not, maybe, making a fast buck off some naive idiot duped by some very dubious press release.
i wonder what the odds are.
Shocked, I tell you.
Actually, I'm a little shocked that they actually withdrew it - there's no way they ever BELIEVED it worked, so why pull it because it doesn't? God knows the assholes who make those signal boosters never had the same reaction to their bullshit product. Haven't seen any ads recently, though - maybe they took the money and ran.
This reminds me of the psuedo-science crap that peddlers of hair and skin 'beauty' products baffle helpless females with. e.g.
Protection against free radical damage
Dermalogical Ultracalming (!!?)
Unique Skin Brightening Complex
Quantum Physical Information Wave
There was quite some coverage here in Belgium, and just about every expert said it was rubbish and even if it wasn't, cellphones would detect a worse signal and start to increase the power of the signals they're emitting, rendering the whole thing useless.
And the quantum thing would be totally irrelevant as normal physics apply to cellphone signals (I say 'would be' because I'm no expert, I just read it somewhere, then moved on to my evening of mind-numbing TV).
Why do we need quantum physical information waves when the radiation will clearly be stopped by all the pentapeptides, vitamin B-73, hyaluronic acids and other bullshitides that are found in today's cosmetics which come equipped with all the most effective fake effects that pseudo-science can provide.
From what I recall, in quantum theory the observation of an event has a direct effect on the event itself. Quantum encryption is unbreakable because merely observing it disrupts it enough to mark it broken. (Something like that. I'm at work and can't remember.)
So from this, I conclude that this chip works; it's just if you try and observe it working it stops working. I think the lights in fridges are similar.

Yes, just like the "psychic" Uri Geller etc. whose psychic powers appear to be blocked yb having some reputable scientists, magicians and skeptics in the audience and checking out the equipment ...
"scientific proof of doctors and professors was brought into doubt"
I wonder, but am too lazy to check, whether they ever named the "doctors and professors", or gave the references to the peer reviewed, respectable-journal-published "scientific proof" they refer too...
Any time you see something like "many scientists agree with (or doubt)" something and it all sounds sketchy, you can be sure there will be no accompanying list of names or respectable publications. Or they will be engineers, or something -- which normal people sometimes mistake for scientists.
Sorry what? Have I missed something here?
I never trustd the tinfoils hats - because as far as I can see they have no active component, and won't work as a faraday cage since they are not grounded, but this new device should be ok, after all it's got a chip in it.
Mine is the one with the wire wool lining.
Doubts? What is the world coming to!
Doubts they HAVE doctors and professors on this. Doubts the photos even have a handset in them. Doubts the scans could even resolve cellphone-caused thermal gradients. Doubts the ad writers know what information is, let alone the quantum kind. But about protection?
I am shocked! Shocked, I tell you!
