So many times I get a call from my sister "Oh Katie I did a really embarrassing thing........" It frequently involves use of the mobile phone when emotional, (or drunk). I of course never do silly things like that! But if I did, I think I'd welcome the new LP4100 from South Korean manufacturer LG.
The phone comes with a breathaliser, so as well as telling you if you too far gone to get in the car, on on your bike, it can be set to actually stop you calling certain numbers after certain times!
from ABC News via Best Week Ever: "The LP4100 also allows users to set up the phone so on certain nights and after a certain time they do not call certain people in their phone book. Think ex-boyfriend or ex-girlfriend. If you have a blood alcohol level over .08, the phone will not let you dial that person. So it not only promotes sobriety, but chastity — and probably your dignity, as well."
A phone that STOPS you making calls! I think this'll be a hit with sensitive single ladies everywhere, even if it's not a hit with mobile operators. I wonder if it can shut you up altogether and stop you talking to people sat next to you - now there's an idea!
