FEAR Scientists say there is a potential cancer risk
AirPods are particularly concerning due to their proximity to the brain, although there is no sufficient research on Bluetooth itself.
Around the globe scientists are increasingly growing concerned over potential health risks of wireless technology in which they say national and worldwide regulations fail to limit, and new technologies are constantly arriving all the time due to trendy customers that can't seem to get enough of them in their attempts of keeping up with the Jones'. "Can't imaging this possibly being all that great for you".
He is among the large group of scientists to have signed a petition calling for "protection" from the technology.
Wireless headphones establish a connection between content on your phone or streaming content and your ears using bluetooth, which is a radio frequency, in the same frequency range as microwaves, WiFi, cell phones and other electronic devices, according to the University of California.
And, in some cases, the levels of radiation found to be carcinogenic were significantly lower than the maximum allowed by federal and global guidelines.
"Over 1 billion iPhone users worldwide offer great potential growth opportunities for AirPods", TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo wrote in a research note released a year ago.
While high levels of EMF waves can cause burns and impact cell-growth in humans, it isn't clear what can result with prolonged exposure to the low amount of EMF waves produced by devices like the AirPods. These waves are similar to UV rays or X raysbut are not as powerful.
Animals exposed to these forms of radiation have been observed to develop reproductive, genetic, and neurological damage which has become more common in those animals than would be expected.

This is nearly 9 trillion digits more than the previous world record , which was set in November 2016 by Peter Trueb. Talking about her journey, she says, "When I was a kid, I didn't have access to supercomputers".
Some experts believe that AirPods may be especially unsafe since the devices sit deep inside the ear canal where they emit radiation to fragile parts of the ear.
NIH has published further evidence of cellular transmission causing certain kinds of cancer.
Bluetooth, which allows data to be transferred wirelessly through the use of electromagnetic frequency (EMF) radio waves, may be especially unsafe when placed close to one's head.
The scientists wrote, 'Numerous recent scientific publications have shown that EMF affects living organisms at levels well below most global and national guidelines.
Google launches its Lookout app to help the visually impaired
Or the user should keep it on the front side of his shirt's pocket or coat's pocket so the camera app can see the things around. Since announcing the app a year ago , Google said it has been "testing and improving the quality" of the app's results.

Steam Link Anywhere lets you stream games from, well, anywhere
For those playing games instead of making them, Steam Link is now officially usable outside of home networks, albeit in open beta. It should be added that iOS users are now out of luck, as Apple keep rejecting Valve's attempts to get the app on the App Store.
