Restless Leg Syndrome

Restless leg syndrome?is a sleep disorder that causes pain in the legs.

Specifically?restless leg syndrome?is a neurological disorder in which a person will feel tingling, creeping, pulling, itching or gnawing sensations in the legs. It is difficult to describe exactly the sensation one feels but it can be difficult to lay still or rest, as movement eases the problem.

For the most part, symptoms are rarely described as painful, but more as if one is experiencing an ache and it is most noticeable at rest, hence why many people find it difficult to get to sleep or to sit and rest for a while.

This sleep disorder tends to begin slowly and becomes more and more frequent over time. Many women find themselves with this disorder during pregnancy especially in the later stages.

Symptoms often get worse during the evening and later on at night. It can also lead to insomnia and excessive daytime sleepiness due to the sleep deprivation it causes.

If the condition becomes severe or chronic it can also prevent you from or limit you from doing certain activities. Travelling by car or plane, sitting in a meet or even watching a movie can become too much as it becomes almost impossible to sit still for any length of time.

The sensations that people experience are described as: prickly, creeping, aching, like insects crawling inside the legs, tingly. The most common area to be affects is the calf but it can be felt anywhere in both or just one leg.
There are 3 classifications for restless leg syndrome:

Primary or Familial?– This is found to run in families.

Secondary?– This appears as a result of another condition such as pregnancy, chronic disease or low iron levels.

Idiopathic?– This is when one has no family history or no other condition that could be linked to it.

For some people symptoms may not occur every night and can come and go. It can often be weeks before it returns. In severe cases, a person can feel the same sensations in their arms

The causes of this sleep disorder are not very well known but it is thought that stress is a huge contributory factor to the condition. Other conditions can cause?restless leg syndrome, for example up to 40% of pregnant women experience it. Also it has been shown that the condition can run in families but this isn’t in all cases or the majority.
Generally the best prevention is to exercise, eat healthy and maintain a stress-free or low stress lifestyle.

Nokia Spreading Its Wings | Announces Partnership With The Automotive Industry

At the 2010 Geneva Motor Show,?Nokia has announced its partnership with the automotive industry to introduce ‘Terminal Mode’. Terminal Mode is being proposed as an industry standard to connect all smartphones that adopt it, not just Nokia smartphones, to support in-car infotainment systems.?Nokia believes it should be easy to share information and content between your smartphone and other devices you use everyday such as your PC and the web. This way it is easy to keep everything synchronized and ensure you always have access to the things you love, such as your music, and the services you use, such as navigation, whenever and wherever you need them.

At the show Nokia was part of the following announcements:

  • Partnership between Nokia and Alpine Electronics to highlight integration of smartphone music and media services with in-car audio systems using Terminal Mode.
  • Partnership between Nokia and Harman Becker to demonstrate integration of navigations services with in-car infotainment systems using Terminal Mode.
  • Valmet Automotive shows electric concept car called Eva that includes Terminal Mode technology.
  • Integration of Fiat’s Blue&Me platform with Nokia smartphones.

Nokia sees ‘Terminal Mode’ as a technology to fuel industry innovation as it allows manufacturers and developers to build new kinds of services by interlinking car information with smartphone applications. For example, Nokia will bring Ovi Services such as navigation and music in to the car via its smartphones. By potentially integrating car information such as speed and fuel consumption with navigation services on the smartphone the driver can get a more personalized and relevant service. He can also play music from the smartphone on the in-car sound system and download driving specific applications from the Ovi Store.

Nokia Extra Power DC-11 Review | Still The Best Portable Charging Solution

As our regular readers are probably aware, we had the?Nokia E72?during the?unboxing challenge?set by?WOMWorld, but not only did they send us the handset, they also crammed the?Nokia Extra Power DC-11?into the package.?Now I’ve personally spent quite a bit of money on portable power in the past, and none of the chargers that I have bought seem to make the cut. The huge selection of connectors, adjustable cords, and all the other gimmickry, just made it a chore to have to pack all these little finicky pieces into one bag to carry around. All I wanted was a simple, reliable and compact solution, and I think I may have just stumbled upon the perfect one.

The Nokia Extra Power DC-11?is a very slim Nokia accessory to charge your device on the go. It won the Red Dot Design Award in 2009, and I can thoroughly understand its credentials. Although the device is very compact, it pack a 1500 mAh Li-Ion battery, which is enough to charge any Nokia handset from empty to full. You could probably even charge your device twice with a single charge.

Now the reason I use the term ‘device’ is because this thing can power up almost every piece of gadgetry you own. With the microUSB connector to be a universal standard for handheld devices, most future gadgets will also sport this feature. What’s more is that the Nokia Extra Power DC-11 has both a proprietary Nokia 2.0 mm pin and a microUSB pin, allowing you to charge two devices at the same time.

DC-11 | Cons

  • The Charger Itself Can Only Be Charged Using The Proprietary Nokia 2.0 mm Pin Charger
  • No Battery Level Indicator On The Charger

The?Nokia Extra Power DC-11?does not come with a charger, which I think is pretty fair, as most people who would consider purchasing this device will already own a Nokia phone, and hence will have a charger lying around somewhere. Since this trial, I have bought two of these chargers for personal use, and would highly recommend it. Currently the?Nokia Extra Power DC-11?is available for £33.38 including shipping from?Amazon.co.uk. Not a bad price at all.
