Fascinating!!!. Where do you sign up for the apps?

Seriously, medicine and college tuition in the U.S. are the two big areas where costs have been growing significantly faster than inflation and technology has not yet lowered costs. I'm convinced that market forces are going to kick in at some point to slow the rate of cost increase and maybe even start driving them down. These applications may be the start of the wedge.

I've seen several articles/shows on this, can't happen soon enough IMO for some routine diagnoses.

Do the smartphones get sterilized and sharpened before each procedure?
