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
