As the days progress, mobiles which are indespensable part of any urbanites artillary is causing problems too.
RTO is attempting to cancel licences of those driving on mobiles as per their analysis this is the top reason for accidents. This is limited to 2nd or 3rd offences.
Police captured a gang of mobile thieves who used romantic couples secluded corner of the park to loot them off their mobiles itself!! Neither the boy nor girl reported the issue to police fearing exposure of love affair and by mistake police caught up the gang.
Just yesterday there was a TV9 presentation on how people are fearing to take calls on mobile from specific mobile numbers belonging to Airtel and Reliance fearing physical harm! Some genius in the rural landscape had spread the word that 27 people had died after recieveing calls from those numbers – symptom is that the mobiles screen will turn red and the reciever will have brain hemorrhage!!!
While I was chuckling away at ignorance, another channel had a different mobile story to tell. This was about cloning your SIM card onto another phone. The other party could stealthly listen to your calls, even make calls without your knowledge!! The demonstrated a software which allows duplication of SIM. If this happens without users knowledge, your privy talks are no more private but mobile to the intruder.
Thankfully such happenings are very low and limited in India.
