This is the future, but it's here now

The mobile phone has gone from a novelty device to untether us from the wall to the one thing we take everywhere and expect to keep up with the demands of our unpredictable lives.

As the cost has escalated, so has our desire to keep them safe, leading to reams of cases and hundreds of thousands of pounds spent on insuring our treasured possessions.

In recent years manufacturers have made progress in making these phones more "life proof" by using tougher materials, stronger glass, and some manufacturers - such as Sony - have even made some of their newer smartphones fully waterproof.

There's a new round of companies too, aiming to make almost every device waterproof without having suffer any compromises in design or weight to achieve it. What does this all mean? We'll we've dived into the deep end to find.

Whether you've been unfortunate to drop your phone in the bath, drink or even down the toilet (we kid you not), you'll have felt the pain of attempting to resurrect your phone from a potential watery grave.

If you haven't, then it's probably only a matter of time before you do according to the statistics, so here's our picks from the current crop of smartphones on the market to help you guard your device from the dangers of liquid.

Sony Xperia Z1 & Xperia Z

The waterproof Sony Xperia Z1

JCB SiteMaster 2This article couldn't pass by without a nod to the Sony Xperia Z1, a smartphone built with the clumsy, or perhaps adventurous, types in mind. Unlike many other waterpoof phones it has all the features of a flagship Android handset, but with the addition of IP 58 rating.

This rating represents the Z1's abilities to withstand dust and water, allowing submersion in up to one and a half metres of fresh water for up to 30 minutes.

The Z1 superseded the Xperia Z, which was not as refined in the design department, with a covered headphone slot and only packing an IP rating of 57, meaning it's less water resistant than the Xperia Z1 (but also cheaper).

As went manufacturing and farming

As sources of employment in this country, so is hardware and software design.
We could do more as a nation to keep it here such as improving higher education, allowing more student visas and h1-b visas, giving credits and incentives to software and high tech companies instead of building bridges to nowhere in alaska, and giving investment and tax credits to develop nanotechnology and alternative/renewable energy sources in this country.
Thanks to Bush and the GOP congress and senate and the general ignorance of the U.S. public, none of it is happening.

I'm kind of an expert in this area

For a saner energy policy, we must vote bush admin out! they subsidize and are in the back pockets of big oil, gas, coal, and nuclear in this country. Kerry won't be able to stop their interests in the immediate short term, but he will funnel more govt. funding to research and development of hydrogen based, nanotechnology fuel sources for the future. In the meantime, Kerry plans to better incentivize alternative/cleaner fuel technologies.
we are the only western nation in the world without a carbon tax. we need to heavily tax carbon based fuels as well as give tax incentives for the private sector to move towards renewable fuels that are available today.

He's encouraging fuel cells now

by Repentful

Here's the Repentful energy policy that should be adopted immediately:
Spur consumer and business demand for alternative fuel by enacting tax code incentives such as deductions for the use of alternative/renewable energy (e.g., wind, solar, microgeneration, distributed generation, etc.). The more you consume, the larger the break in both percentage and absolute terms of what you can deduct.
Spur distribution/retail of the sale of alternative/renewable energy generation equipment by giving all kinds of federal tax abatement on sales and other taxes related to the purchase and resale of wholesale alternative/renewable energy generation equipment

Carbon-based nanostructures are already being used as materials in solar cells with increasing frequency, yet their ability to enhance electrical performance has thus far been hampered by limited ability to assemble orderly networks using the materials.
