I’m sure everyone has been there. On a drunken emotional and vulnerable night you reach for your phone and start texting people like ex-lovers. Nowadays communication is so easy and instant that we sometimes don’t think anymore when we send messages or make that call.
Apparently there is an LG phone (LP4100) in Korea that has a built in breathalyzer to prevent drunk dialing. The iPhone has released two apps called The Bad Decision Blocker and Don’t Dial! One app lets you program certain numbers into it and temporarily blocks them for a certain time frame and will be inaccessible until the time is over (hopefully you’ll be sober by then). The other app lets your friend create a password only they would know and can give you when they feel you are sober enough to make the call.
Now if this could only stop us from sleeping with someone we shouldn’t have, saying “I love you” too soon or from cheating this would complete these apps. Or maybe you should look into partying less if this happens to you often.
Another thing I’d really like to see is an “UNSEND” button for text messages or voicemail. I’ve sent text messages and voicemails in the past and have wanted to take them back. Imagine, this would save many people from arguments and misunderstandings. App developers…are you listening?
Some funny tidbits I’ve collected regarding drunk text & dialing.
