Ghost Detecting Cell Phone!?!


"In what may be the single greatest mobile application of all time, the Discovery Channel is offering downloads of a ghost detection program for compatible cell phones. The download is free, as long as you sign up for a subscription to its Most Haunted website.

As any self-respecting ghost buster knows, paranormal investigators say that fluctuations in Electro Magnetic Fields (E.M.F.) are the indicators for paranormal activity. Apparently, this application works by measuring variations in data transmission times to and from your mobile phone, which it takes from fluctuations in the local electromagnetic field.

It's at this point in the post that we're supposed to make a joke about 'Ghostbusters' and the phrase, "Who you gonna call?" -- but we'll spare you."

When I caught wind of this, all I could think was...what a bunch of nonsense. I am not impressed here folks.

No, it doesn't sound like something that would actually work.

I'll go against popular opinion here and say that I think it might work. Emf can have effect other electrical equipment and it sounds like this is a program that utilises the effects of emf on the signals to and from the phone.
