Posts on quality, life, culture, the media, news & tech with a twist & a slice of Limey. I moved my blog to http://renaissancehambara.jp in December 2006, go there for the latest content.
Not so smartphone
I had to share this link that Bob sent through. You go out and have a few drinks, do you need a software program to tell you that you are likely to be drunk? Well according to TA Cybernetic Solutions
, you may well do. For the princely sum of 2.45 USD you too can buy Blood Alcohol Level 1.0
. According to the blurb. "If you love the taste of alcohol and love drinking. This application is the best for you." Wrong, wrong, wrong - if you need to monitor your blood alcohol level you're probably a designated driver. Step back from the beer now! To quote from Fosters lager marketing collateral - 'If you drink and drive you're a bloody idiot' - couldn't have put it better myself.
I guess that people are really scrapping the barrel for finding compelling applications for the latest smart phones. What next? New 3 phone with built-in Leatherman multi-tool and shot glass - a phone ready for any emergency.
Makes the 3 billion USD spent on ringtones worldwide last year seem worthy of a Nobel peace prize in comparison
