Technology site The Future of Things reports that a research team from Israel’s Ben Gurion University has found that mobile phone usage affects reaction time. 48 men were given a number of tests in an experiment. A third of the participants were subjected to a working phone on the right side of their head, one third on the left side and one third to no phone at all. The subjects didn’t know which one of the phones (if any) was active during the experiment.
Last week Sony Ericsson was in Rome with Ana Ivanovic and Victoria Azarenka, encouraging them to play tennis on the roof of the Villa Miami to promote the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour. The company's now taken Elena Dementieva and Caroline Wozniacki to Madrid. But a glamorous outdoor location wasn't set aside for them - instead a court was created underground at the Chamartin metro station.
