@DiabloConQueso - I understand that. Therefore, my question - this patent doesn't describe additional monitoring capabilities, some of which might require FDA approval. It simply describes what to...

Very good article. Wish it wasn't in a forum where you're likely preaching to he choir. But I will post it on FB so my non-technical friends can get a good overview.

Could your title be any more bogus/inane? Apple and Samsung don't own 96.3 percent of the smartphone market - It's Apple and ANDROID. You do know the difference between the two, I hope?
