(image) Look, as a reformed Wired editor, I love stories that are totally unpredictable but, upon reflection, make perfect sense. So when I read that cell phone signals are confusing and killing bees, and that may explain the global die-off that is happening in bee populations, I thought “well ain’t that just too frickin’ perfect.” We are almost at the point of no return when it comes to dependence on smartphones. Yet they may well be killing us, eventually, not through cancer, but through our food supply, by way of losing a key element, the bees. Can we fix it? Will we?
