Subject: How cellular signal-boosting indoor DAS networks benefit healthcare Message-ID: <l08t03$8nt$1@dont-email.me> There was a time when hospitals refused to allow staff to carry personal cellphones. The fear was that the devices' signal could interfere with more traditional medical devices. But providers have figured out that this fear is largely unfounded, opening the gates to a flood of cellphones. As more and more clinicians use personal or hospital-issued cellphones for mission-critical functions, the demand for reliable signals has increased dramatically, and some providers are finding that standard cell signals don't penetrate to many areas of their facility. This is where an indoor distributed antenna system (DAS) comes in. http://searchhealthit.techtarget.com/feature/How-cellular-signal-boosting-indoor-DAS-networks-benefit-healthcare -or- http://goo.gl/5IFaMo -- Bill Horne (Remove QRM from my address to write to me directly)

Subject: Living with a Smartphone - and No Cellular Plan Message-ID: <l08smg$7k9$1@dont-email.me> (MoneyWatch) It seems like common sense: If you have a mobile phone, you need a wireless plan to go along with it. But those plans are expensive. The average individual mobile phone bill is about $70 per month, for example, and about half of all Americans pay more than $100 per month. For their cell phone. http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-505143_162-57601006/living-with-a-smartphone-and-no-cellular-plan/ -or- http://goo.gl/i5CUHi -- Bill Horne (Remove QRM from my address to write to me directly)
