Mobile phones, Neteller, checks in the mail, and hi-frequency radio emissions

by Lou on February 2, 2007


I had to chop up the cardboard box my new mobile phone came in to cut out the barcode information and send it off for my $50 rebate. I’m guessing the phone rebate beats the Neteller check request into my mailbox, and if you’ve ever sent in for any sort of rebate, you know you’re in for a long Neteller wait when you believe the rebate will arrive first.

I also hated to cut up the cardboard box the phone came in. It was tough, sturdy, and just the right size to use as a desk drawer organizer in my office for all sorts of small things. But for $50, I was willing to make that kind of sacrifice.

Way down at the bottom of the mobile phone box was a small pamphlet entitled Consumer Information About Radio Frequency Emissions. It told me, “The available scientific evidence does not show that any health problems are associated with using wireless phones.” But the very next sentence hedged that comment, stating, “there is no proof, however, that wireless phones are absolutely safe.”

Something for everyone; it’s not likely to be a problem but we can’t tell you it’s not. Now you see it; now you don’t. Just like Neteller: Your check will be mailed, but we don’t know when. I guess I’ll complete this strange analogy by cutting up my Neteller debit card some day soon. I had uses for it too; just like I did for that cardboard box.

All I’m wondering now is whether Neteller causes health problems through radio frenquency emissions.
