#726: Wireless wonders for the newborn
Remember back when Sir William Stewart (IEGMP) said that the telcos should not target children for cell phones? That was a recommendation lost on industry as the following message from Joamme Mueller illustrates. Perhaps from the industry’s blinkered long-tern view, getting the kiddies addicted to microwaves soon after birth isn’t such a bad thing after all – it ensures a loyal customer base in the future – microwaved junkies hopelessly hooked on the technology. And what about the possibility that Autism is connected to microwave exposure as Joanne mentions below? If true, this is Good News for the pharmaceducal industry ever willing to create new drug treatments for the modern ills of society. So depending on your viewpoint this is either a horrendous situation or a tremendous market opportunity.

From Joasnne Mueller:
To All: This website “Health Check Systems,” has a number of infant monitoring devices. The “details” are “frightening” — the site would not allow for copying and pasting. I am typing some of the descriptions below as accurately as I can.
SVAT GX5201 Color Wireless Nightvision – Video monitoring system…..allows you to see and hear…high quality yet inexpensive……includes a 2.4 GHz wireless color camera w/built-in microphone and infrared LEDs that let it see up to 10 ft,. in complete darkness, and a portable 2.5″ color LCD screen….
BabySense Infant Motion Monitor……alerts you if baby’s movement stops with powerful sensor pads that fit under baby’s mattress and a high speed microprocessor control unit……
SVAT GigaXTreme GX-5200 Economical Baby Monitor, Wireless 2.4 GHz……. Amazing new cordless technology brings you the ultimate in portability…..plug and plan install, large 2.5″ TFT LCD screen. Connect the monitor to a TV, computer or VCR for recording……
Baby Quiet Sounds Color video monitor from Summer infant ……. has 2.5″ color LCD screen that zooms in and out ………parent unit belt clip…… 900 MHz technology for superior clarity and range….infrared LEDs for night vision……
Phillips SCD-589 DECT Digital Baby Monitor with new Phillips DECT (digital enhanced cordless telecommunications)…….guaranteed zero interference from nearby monitors……remote features such as room temperature monitoring, starry nightlight and remote operation of 5 lullabyes to soothe baby…2 way intercom……
I knew there were infant monitors out there and have been warning parents not to have them close to cribs. I had no idea that ANY of the monitors would be DECT units, wireless or that there would be a product such as the “powerful sensor pads under baby’s mattress!!!”
“Autism” being diagnosed every 20 minutes?” “Autism” on the increase!!! “ADD,” “ADHD???” These products are outrageous!!! Obviously “just moving items” across bedrooms will not be nearly enough protection. Take care everyone……. Joanne
