for fucks sake you're butthurt about something you don't have to use.
I am not butthurt about anything... I have had that feature for 4 years or so. I really do not care if you use the feature or not. Honestly, all it does is shift the reason for the accident. The dummy that rear ends you on the phone is gonna rear end you anyway because they were doing something else.

Not sure who was first, but Blackberry had some form of it back then too. I know my last Android phone had it built-in from the factory as of 5+ years ago.

It'd sure be funny if some obscure IP patent troll actually owns this and makes a mint off Apple (even more so if they only found out Apple is doing this via the "yay us" advertising all these years late to the party).

IMO the blame should fall on the idiot using his phone while driving and the people that sued.

You want to stop folks from using their phones while driving? Crank up the 6 point reckless driving tickets. They are 6 points and 500 or so bucks. Plus, they wreck your insurance. Those will wake folks up. No new law... Not app you can turn off.

and as I stated, many studies have shown that phones are physically addicting, like drugs.

great that you and I have the willpower to put the fucking thing in the center console and leave it, how many 20 year olds do you think do?

it's a simple solution to a problem we all bitch about.
that's common sense.

phones are literally replacing drugs.
You and I didn't grow up with them, the youth today has, they are addicted.
I don't understand why you're so adamantly opposed to a technological solution to a problem brought on by technology.

lots of studies have shown the phones/social media/texting have an effect on our brains like that of drugs.
The phone dings and your brain wants to look at it.

remove the dings, no more desire to fuck with it.

a simple voluntary restriction that solves a problem, how is that not common sense?

when my kid is old enough to have a phone that can call and text, he will also have a job so that he can pay for it.

at that point, it is on him to not use it while driving. like stated, it is easy to work around and pure bullshit that this was in response to a lawsuit

actually that's one spot where apple has gotten it pretty right.

You can't simply restore a phone if password has been set.
It's more an anti theft thing than anything else.

fullsize80cherokee It won't prevent anything since most the dumbasses who look at their phones and drive will just disable it while they are driving, this will probably make it worse. Distracted driving should be the same or worse punishment than drunk driving since it's statistically more dangerous and causes more accidents and fatalities.

Given the fact that more and more cities issue tickets for distracted driving and/or use of a cell while driving it already on its way, and Id bet that most of the tickets given are to folks 35 yrs old and younger...

Of amusement is that while many cities in MT have cell regs and did it within the past 5-6 or so yrs...MT didn't have an open container law until 2006 and theres still counties that want exemptions added to the law so farmer Bill can drink his beer on the way home from the fields.

I'm guessing it uses bluetooth connectivity to determine if you're in car, much like it's "find my car" feature
