People don’t realize it, but monthly subscriptions cost way more that you think, and I’m not talking about those monthly utility bills – I’m referring to the media subscriptions. Take a look.

Businesses like Cable and Wireless used to sell single products, until they realized they could make much more money by selling a subscription. It doesn’t seem like that much when you’re only paying $24/month for your telephone line. Here’s a breakdown of what you might be spending just on media subscriptions:

  • $87/month for Internet (depending on Internet plan)
  • $55/month for cell phone – If you have a post paid account
  • $50/ average monthly cost for cable TV
  • $24/month for telephone line

EC$2592 per year

If you go ahead add in other subscriptions like your gym and you’ll be stunned. I wonder if this is one reasons why a lot of “Young Adults” are still living at home with their parents… I know of a number of 20 somethings that have to have all of the latest gadgets and 15-25K reconditioned cars, cell phone with a million minutes. 😥

Check out details of new research in September’s International Journal of Neuroscience. It speaks for itself, Cell phone do have advert affects on the human brain waves.

Not necessarily … if you agree that a higher focus on details makes up for slower work. Well! This trade-off still sounds a bit scary if you after a sometime reduce mental speed. Do you agree?

Studies show that long term mobile phone affects that slow human brain waves. The question left on every researcher and cellphone consumers mind…Does a slower brain wave help or hurt a person’s mental and physical health?

Could the trade-off of deeper focus benefit people more than loss of speed? I’m curious to hear your comments.
