"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

Did you know what illegal operations lurk within your mobile phone?

    Now I know that this element has a big role in our electronic devices. :)

    My phone is switched off and probably will stay that way for at least a few months! I'm fed up with trying to replace sim cards for a few weeks here and there. Usually I can do all I need to do via the Internet.

    This could be the inside packaging of your phones.


    Consisting of millions of resistors, capacitors, transistors, logic gates, etc. ;)

    Two months ago while i was in YouTube, i came across a video and it state " how to extract gold from your old mobile ". This is an interesting stuff because the price of the gold is very high recent times and if we could able to extract gold from this old stuff, that could help us to make significant amount of money.

    Mobile phones have GPS devices that can track where you are. I thought this worked off having a mobile signal, but I was surprised to find Google Maps still found my location even when I didn't have a mobile signal.

    @mheredge - how's that possible? Do you mean you can see your position on Google Maps on your phone? or even on other device - your notebook, PC?

    Mobile phone can determine your position basing on GPS (or GLONASS) signals, or basing on signals from base stations of your mobile operator. It means you can see your location on maps even if you do not have GPS signals - but mobile network should be reachable.

    To transfer your location to PC you need some transmission - over the the mobile network or alternately over WiFi.

    What about your case?

    Well in Transnistria and Moldova, although I didn't have a mobile signal, I was able to see on a map where I was @Pedro. I was very surprised and don't know how it worked.

    I've tried to use GPS on my laptop.

    It's sad to see, that the world doesn't evolve anywhere. Most of our electronic gadgets made by enslaved people (or worst: enslaved children) around the world.
    But this is just about the hardware. Who knows how many illegal spying software lurking about us.
