Apple Kills Bees

2:40 PM -- Smartphones? Maybe not so smart, according to this story at CNN World, everyone's authoritative news source:

    A new study has suggested that cell phone radiation may be contributing to declines in bee populations in some areas of the world...

    In a study at Panjab University in Chandigarh, northern India, researchers fitted cell phones to a hive and powered them up for two fifteen-minute periods each day.

    After three months, they found the bees stopped producing honey, egg production by the queen bee halved, and the size of the hive dramatically reduced.
And that's a half-hour a day. Think what they're doing to your breeding capability. Not to mention your honey secretion.

Maybe the beez were all distracted by the rich array of content -- not unlike many Manhattanites that now buzz through the day, eyes fixed on the digital device of their choice.
