Don't call people idiots when you are ignorant yourself. It may not be a significant force, but it is non-zero.
Ok kids, lets do a little test.
Grab Android Sensor Box
from the Play store.
Fire up the Magnetic Senors.
You will see the world around you registers around 50ish μT (microTesla)
Grab a magnet and put it on/near the back of the phone and see how the levels climb.
Now for the fun sciencey part.
Put the phone on the Orb and make sure it is charging.
Now tell me again about magnetic fields created by inductive charging.
