It can wait

 

As noted earlier this year, April is Distracted Driving Awareness month.  Since then, though, the number of deaths from texting while driving just in Ohio – not to mention nationwide – continues to rise.

At least she’s got one hand on the wheel…

There is a new resource available at EndDD.org.  It shares the real-world story of Casey Feldman who was struck and killed by a texting driver as she crossed the street.  EndDD.org also has a checklist of pledges, which can be especially helpful for teenage drivers.

What does this mean to you:

Ohio’s texting while driving ban went into effect at the beginning of September.  Not only is it now against the law, its just dangerous.  Put down the cell phone while driving.  Nothing is that important.  It can wait.

If you end up collecting and storing business cards, and if you have an iPhone (though there really should be no “if” about it), you have to check out the app WorldCard Mobile.  Take photo of a business card, and it extracts the data from the card and puts it into your contacts.  I find I am using it more and more these days in my business.  No more Rolodex, no more stacks of cards.

And on the topic of iPhone, rumors abound about the next generation of the Jesus Phone, but, as always with Apple, there are more questions than answers at this point.  Will it be unveiled in June or October?  Will it move up to a 4 in screen?  Will it look like one of these gorgeous concepts?  Will it be called iPhone 5 with 4G, or avoid the naming controversy like with “the new iPad?”  Stay tuned.


What does this mean to you:

Buy WorldCard Mobile now.  Wait until later this year to buy the new iPhone, whatever it ends up being called.
