Shaky Monitor [May. 3rd, 2002|09:19 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
My monitors started shaking and I got excited: my phone is about to ring! Somebody is calling me to go do something fun!

Alas, nobody is calling me. Just my phone talking to the towers and getting updates.


P.S. This post has been brought to you by the word alas, an interjection expressing sorrow, regret, grief, compassion, or apprehension of danger or evil. That is all.

You could always come to Austin to view Spider-Man at the coolest movie theatre ever, with good company and good beer.

Your phone does that too? Is it a Nextel? I have a Nextel and it makes radios, speakers, monitors, TVs, just about anything go haywire. I know when I'm getting a call on my cell in the phone about 3 seconds before it rings, which is handy 'cause I can pull over :P

my Nokia 3360 does it. My old 5160 did too. It often makes my car stereo buzz. It would make my laptop buzz. It sort of makes my new computer buzz... but not as much.

I think it depends on what type of phone it is (GSM, CDMA, TDMA, old-school analog) and what frequencies transmits on more than anything. It takes a lot of power to transmit a signal to the tower which is why it causes that much interferance. It kinda makes you wonder about the safety of your phone. :P
