Photoshop for Biologists

Photoshopfilter: I am making a figure for publication in a science journal. Is there a software or cellular components package that I could use to build diagrams of cells with mitochondria, organelles, receptors and signaling pathways? I am looking to make a schematic that look similar to this (click figures/tables to see it) that I can alter. Is there a components package I could use to build these without making it all from scratch? [more inside]

Sprint coverage in Maryland

How's the current Sprint voice/data coverage around Baltimore MD and College Park MD? I'm thinking of switching our family plan from T-Mobile to Sprint and wondering if any Maryland mefites can provide some idea of Sprint coverage. I don't really trust the Sprint coverage maps but it implies that coverage is pretty good. [more inside]

Euro traveling in the US - cell phone options?

I'll be spending the month of June in the US. What are the options for short term mobile phone service? I gather that sim cards in the US are different from Europe & that I can't simply buy a local SIM card for my Euro phone. Please tell me if I'm wrong! Can I buy a cheap local phone and "pay as you go" credit?

New Cell Phone signal better?

Do newer cell phones pick up cell phone tower signals better? My Dad had a Tracfone analog cell phone that picked up signal fine in a part of our county that he hunts in but Tracfone upgraded his phone to a digital cell phone about 3 years ago and now he can not get signal in that part of the county anymore. I contacted Tracfone at the time this happened to see if I could update his phone with any new cell phone towers and was told the phone automatically updates with new cell phone towers. If I bought him a newer Tracfone what are chances it will pick up better then the one he has?

How to replace my landline for 4 cell users?

Require a replacement for my landline and the 30 bucks a month that it costs me as I now have 4 cell phones in the house. Require a telephone device that (a) rings on more than one handset (b) has access to cheap long distance (c) good quality and dependable. I realize Google Voice does a lot of this, but I'm in Canada and we don't have Google Voice available here yet or any indication of how soon it could be arriving. Is all of this possible without a landline? What services can you recommend to get me closer to my goal?

Porting a cell phone number to a land line phone?

Can I port my existing AT&T Wireless cell phone number to a new Comcast Digital Voice land line account? The 1-800-Comcast customer support rep. said no, but the FCC says "you can switch telephone service providers, including interconnected Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) providers, and keep your existing phone number".

Do cell phone signal repeaters actually work?

Do cell phone signal boosters like this one from Radio Shack actually work? Apparently an external antenna is mounted outside your home, and this is connected to a "desktop amplifier." In most rooms in my house, I'm riding with a single bar of signal (thank you, AT&T). If this can help, I'm all in. Does anyone have any experience with one of these?

cell phone insurance under home owner insurance?

Cell phone insurance under home owner insurance? Has anyone tried this? Is it worth it? I signed up for cell phone insurance with Verizon and naively thought it would be worth it (even for a smartphone). Like anything, I know you need to pay something to get something, but $8/mo + $90 for a claim every time could get pretty expensive. If it helps, I have State Farm. We've been with them for 15 years or so.

No Signal

What is wrong with my new mobile phone? When my phone goes idle after 15 sec of no use (typical battery saving function) or loses the signal when I am in an elevator (typical situation but normally survivable), it won't automatically reconnect so it's like I don't even have a phone. How can I over come this? Is it normal for "newer" phones to constantly be searching for a signal yet not getting it or turning off like this? [more inside]

Credo/Sprint in Los Angeles?

So, Credo, which uses the Sprint network, finally has a smartphone that apparently doesn't suck (the HTC Hero). I'm very tempted to switch over from Verizon, especially since the latter tends to drop calls when I'm sitting in my living room. But I don't want to go from the frying pan into the fire, so to speak. Can any LA Mefites give me your opinion of Sprint's coverage, especially in the Echo Park/Silverlake/Los Feliz area? More generally, if anyone has experience with Credo's customer service, I'd appreciate hearing from you too. I want to support good causes, but I don't want to drive myself crazy in the process.

I did do school biology, but...

Pretty much every cell in a organism contains the DNA for that whole organism. How does a mutation in one cell pass on so that it becomes part of the DNA of every cell or actually affects a characteristic in that organism or its child?
