Disappointed by Windows, Acer Relies on Android. Acer said that they will reduce their dependence on computer products, which are based using Windows as their operating system. These Taiwanese vendors prefer the growth of Android devices such as tablets and smartphones.

In a meeting with investors, the president of Acer, Jim Wong estimates that Android devices Contributed to 12% of all revenues Acer at the end of 2013.

Acer’s recorded financial performance is quite disappointing lately. In the second quarter of 2013, they posted a loss of USD 20.5 million. Whereas in the same period last year, they earned a profit.

Negative Impacts of Smartphones to Health

Negative Impacts of Smartphones to Health. Unconsciously human life is now very dependent on the smartphone. Advanced communication tools that are almost never be apart from the hand. Even some of you can see them more than 150 times a day.

But did you know that a smartphone could affect the health of your body from your eyes to the spine? The following events can happen from using smartphones too much as quoted from Daily Mail, Sunday, August 11, 2013.

1. Damage the Eyes

Do you ever feel dry eyes after using a smartphone? That’s because you are too focus on a small object in a considerable period of time. If it keeps going it could cause inflammation and eye infections.

Smartphones should also be kept away from children because according to Allon Barsam, an eye surgeon at the Luton & Dunstable Hospital University, UK, the gadget can increase the potential for myopic eyes. Psychologist Dr. Aric Sigman also advised to forbid children, aged 3 to 7, from playing games with a small screen for more than half an hour a day.

Also according to the study, the use of smartphones can also cause presbyopia, which is the inability of the eye to focus on close objects, usually suffered by people aged 40 years and over. The disease can arise from viewing the screen with a very close distance.

Solution: Increase the text size on your smartphone. Only use it in a room with adequate lighting and no more than 15 minutes.

2. Destructive Spine

The use of smartphones can change our posture. As described by Kirsten Lord, physiotherapist, our body is a product of what we do everyday.

We can see that, now, there are many people who feel pain in the neck or shoulders. This is because we often lean on something when reading or playing the phone or the tablet. Such position could crush the top spine and the nerves to your head. Thus causing headaches, numbness and fatigue.

Solution: use a hands-free device. Additionally Kirsten also gives suggestions for simple exercises to lengthen the neck muscles by imagining a rope pulling the middle part of your head to help improve posture.

3. Changing the Shape of the Jaw

Excessive use of smartphones can also cause your jaw shape changes. Dr. Sam Bunting dermatologist says, “I see an increasing number of women in their 30s who are concerned of the bottom part of their face fell. As people age, reduction in skin elasticity and bending the neck for hours to play the smartphone can cause your skin to be drawn down.”

Solution: Hold your smartphone or tablet parallel straight in front of you. Do not put it downward so you do not need to constantly look down.

Air New Zealand Airlines requires their stewardesses to submit a copy of their Facebook page as well as bank account records. Both of these must be submitted to prove whether the stewardesses telling the truth when they are absent.

As quoted from the AAP, this happened to an Air New Zealand flight attendant named Gina Kensington. Gina has now been released after taking a leave to take care of her biological sister in March 2013 ago.

Gina brought the case to the Employment Relations Authority. This woman deemed that handing a copy of her bank accounts activity and Facebook page should not be done. She feels that these two elements are part of privacy.

But apparently the ERA agrees with the request Air New Zealand. According to them, their data could be relevant to prove whether Gina’s guilt.
