Technobabble and mobile phones

This made me chuckle a bit this morning:

I think I need to brush up on my physics to understand that!

"Through a process of quantum oscillation, the 5GBioShield USB key balances and re-harmonises the disturbing frequencies arising from the electric fog induced by devices, such as laptops, cordless phones, wi-fi, tablets, et cetera”

Looks like the sort of crap you’d find on the web pages of some of the more ‘Esoteric’ audiophile accessory companies…


Technobabble is legitimate technical speak, it’s esoteric language, specialized technical terms or technical slang but at a level only understood by those who move in those circles.
This G5 ‘protection’ stuff is pure garbage, the modern day eq. of snake oil peddlers, preying on the gullible.


I’m not sure anybody should take that report seriously.

Isn’t that Holly from Red Dwarf.

Yes, that did go through my mind :grin:

I suggest we refrain from talking about ‘leads’ and speciaist outlets.

Well, who knows, it might work if they reverse the polarity of the neutron flow :laughing:

My comment on brushing up on physics was a bit tongue in cheek, but at least I now have an inkling about quantum entanglement!


I also now know who Holly is - don’t think I’ve ever watched a single episode of Red Dwarf. :upside_down_face:

I fell into a bit of a wormhole when I saw that and looked up the report that the 5G sub-committee of Glastonbury Town Council’s 5G Advisory Committee wrote- 115 pages including appendices.

One of the submissions from a Committee member actually recommended that ‘device’ in the report- unbelievable.

Sadly it’s aged very badly. I really enjoyed it 20-30 years ago…

Many shows have aged quite badly haven’t they - in some cases nostalgia gets you through a few episodes of something you remember more fondly than it might deserve.

I was at University when Red Dwarf started and we were more likely to be swotting or socialising as a group in those days than watching TV - in fact I can barely recall watching much TV in ‘digs’ apart from maybe Spitting Image and ‘The New Statesman’.

You were an intellectual lot then. When I was at Uni in the early 70s, the must-watch TV programme In the Students Union was “The Magic Roundabout”.




Not really, I thought I’d put swotting in for balance, as most nights we were down the local enjoying real ale, often singing hymns or rugby songs, though exams did need steady work +/- late night cramming.

We did have a VHS copy of Dougal and the Blue Cat in the house, and I purchased The Clangers too, but someone ‘borrowed it’. :grin:

For a minute I thought ‘that’s where all the toilet paper went’ !

Wouldn’t it be more effective to buy some self-adhesive copper foil and wrap it thoroughly around the phone, being sure to leave no gaps…

Hmm, not sure, that might induce some wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey temporal instability. :woozy_face:

Nah, both Magic Roundabout and The Clangers were strangely fascinating to myself and my mates, during my college years, if ye get my drift. :wink:


Quick, you need to get that holographic nano-layer catalyser now - trading standards think it’s a scam, well I never! :rofl:

I’m not sure this isn’t the Dr. Who thread in disguise?!
