Preventing a digital disaster


It’s natural for a parent to worry when their child gets behind the wheel for the first time, but the digital age adds a whole new layer of concern. In an era where it is acceptable to talk on the phone and drive simultaneously, an inexperienced driver may become distracted and cause a life-threatening crash. For Blackberry users, there is now an alternative. ZoomSafer has created an application that locks the keypad when the user reaches 15 mph. The application auto-replies to all calls, texts and e-mails, and announces who is calling and enables hands-free calls. Available on Blackberry Application World, the program costs $14.99.
