The Latest Cellphone Craze - Lieing
The latest new cell phone craze is lieing. (Everything I know about telling lies came from this old Mattel game, described on Spookshows.Com.)
Read all about it here.
The Times story notes that text messages are being used to set up "alibi and excuse clubs" so people can cheat on one another. Enterpreneurial companies like Kargo are selling ringtones that simulate things like traffic jams, dentists drilling and hacking coughs.
Some experts call this an "arms race" between things like GPS satellites that track workers on the one hand and tools that lie on the other.
What I call it all is an opportunity.
The problem is, as I've said before, that not all services work on all phones, and most people don't know how to use the services they have.
We're working on it. Hard. And we'll have more to say about it Real Soon Now.
