You, I read the USC article. The Toms Hardware writer made subtle modifications and left out relevant facts to make it fit his views.I'd like to point out that UCSD is the public University of California-San Diego while USC is the private University of Southern California located in Los Angeles.
The image had nothing to do with any cell phone.
USC Science did not fail, and if the OP had read the USC article first, he should have spotted the alteration of the USC paper. Its not fair to blame USC for a article written by someone else that is misquoted and omits crucial information. The blame falls on Toms Hardware and their employment of a incompetent writer who set out to prove a point.
