Slashdot aired this little beauty earlier today and I thought it was timely in respect to the article written here yesterday.
This really says to me; “Well hell, if fines and/or laws won’t stop people texting or taking phone calls whilst driving, then the software developers will”.
It was only really a matter of time before something like this was introduced and rest assured the insurance companies will jump on the bandwagon fairly soon and make this type of thing mandatory. Deprivation of liberty or downright big brother taking a further step??? Feel free to sound off in the comments section.
Quoted from Slashdot:“Canadian company Aegis Mobility has developed software that detects if a cell phone is moving at ‘car’ speeds. If so, the software, DriveAssistT, will alert the cellular network, telling it to hold calls and text messages until the drive is over. Calls are not blocked entirely; callers will be notified that the person appears to be driving, but they can still leave an emergency voice mail, which will be sent through immediately.”
Thank you, Slashdot, for the material on this one, and for those of you who want to investigate further, just click here.
