Brain on Drugs? NO!
Radiation Penetration in a 13-year-old
Brain on Drugs? NO! This is a picture of your kid's brain while he talks on his cell phone!
I recently registered for your site-
I wondered what you might have in the way of advice regarding the following:
MIXIT has become the in-thing in this country- kids are using it more and more and some becoming addicted as in 6 hours a day and into the night.
Parents needing their kids to have mobile phones in terms of arrangements are finding it extremely difficult to control as it is dirt cheap, easy to access and being used by all their friends as a mobile chat room.
I’d appreciate your opinion or any articles relating to this.
MXit is a mobile instant messenger application developed in South Africa that runs on GPRS\3G mobile phones with java support that allows you to communicate with other MXit users on their cell phones or even on a PC. Messages are sent and received via the mobile Internet, rather than with standard Short message service technology (SMS).
The user can also exchange messages with online chat communities like MSN Messenger, ICQ, and Jabber.
Messages are limited to about 2000 characters.
Because messages are billed by the amount of data sent, they are much cheaper to send than traditional SMS messages. MXit is very popular because of its simplicity and the cost.
Currently during peak time, an SMS on any one of our network providers costs around 80c for 160 characters. Using MXit, the exact same message, will equate to around 3 to 5c!
MXit claims to have a registered user-base of two million and about five million log-ons per day …and most of the users are South African Teenagers.
The problems associated with cell phone use among teens and pre-teens are mostly related to health issues.
