Tawkon's radiation detector
Plenty of apps get cold, impersonal rejections from the App Store, but Tawkon holds the distinction of getting a rejection directly from Apple CEO Steve Jobs. Last summer, Tawkon founder Gil Friedlander emailed Jobs and pitched the app as a good way to allow users to "see the level of radiation they are exposed to from their mobile phone." One week after the pitch, Jobs got around to replying with a two-word answer: "Not interested." The good news is that you can still get this app on your jail-broken. http://www.tawkon.com/blog/index.php/2011/03/steve-jobs-%E2%80%9Cno-interest%E2%80%9D-so-tawkon-lowers-iphone-radiation-via-cydia/ iPhone if you really want to know how much radiation your iPhone is emitting at a given time.
