Texting and driving doesn’t work

Well over a million people  world wide are victims of mobile phone misuse in traffic. Snapchat can be one of the biggest traps these days for people to text and drive. The “snaps” are quick and people are compelled to react to them. The message still has not got through about mobile phones and driving. Why? Plenty of people have been hurt. Too many people have been killed or seriously injured. The police and emergency services are over removing mobile phones from the hands of a deceased person behind a wheel. Nothing sadder when the phone is active and the person is not. YouTube is now full of videos of people using mobile phones and driving. There are personal videos, police videos and advertising designed to stop people indulging this destructive habit. It’s like people cannot understand it’s dangerous. It’s their mobile phone. It rises above all. It conquers all. It is invincible. There are people , like the instructors in this Belgian driving school, who are trying hard to help people break these stuck thoughts about mobile phones. It really is important to clearly demonstrate why this is dangerous and how it is because people just are not getting it. Technology has given us mobile phones but it has also given us the avenues for constantly re educating people about good uses of mobile technology as opposed to dangerous ones. 

Don’t try this at home or anywhere else!

I love gadgets. I love looking at gadgets. I am always amazed at how inventive and creative people are and when it comes to a fancy phone you’ve invested in, it is always good to know you can do more and more with it. Then I saw the first gadget on this video and had kittens. Why would you put your smartphone in a drone and just let it fly up into the air anywhere? Over the ocean? In the mountains? Off a balcony? My brain had a million thoughts all at once. I could just see it. The drone malfunctions, there appears to be no remote, your fancy phone noses dives into oblivion. Do manufacturers see us coming? Is this drone safer than it appears? Even if you use it in a controllable, contained environment what if it did crash…and smash your phone screen? Is the screen protected in some way? I cannot understand why you’d put your expensive phone into a drone and just let it fly away. Recipe for disaster is it not? The other gadgets more than made up for it. Yes, it would be good to have lenses which improve close up photo quality, the 3D scanner was incredibly impressive, the air button was such a good idea and the wifi/bluetooth earbud charger case was a well thought out idea and I can see it being popular. Are those earbuds a health risk , though? You could read these forum posts and have your own thoughts. You could also read the really helpful article on Electricsense. I think we need experts to weigh in on this with us and give us some clear and definite information.

Put down your phone…

We are starting the age of reason with mobile technology. This video says it so well.

Facebook could be publishing your mobile phone contacts

All the phone numbers in your mobile (cell) phone might now be on Facebook. Go to the top right of the screen, click on ACCOUNT, click on EDIT FRIENDS on left side of screen and click CONTACTS. You might see all the phone numbers stored on your mobile(cell) phone (Facebook friends or not) are published .

TO REMOVE, go to RIGHT column, click on “this page” and follow the instructions. That will allow you to stop that particular function.

Make a habit of going to your Facebook settings and checking the changes which often occur without notification to account holders. Your privacy is very much your business and responsibility these days because the default position for some sites is they publish what they want to and offer you the option of making the changes. Checking settings on any site is important.
