So many lives

iPhone > Settings > General > Restrictions — a quite useful function in iOS. With a simple numeric code I can set a limit on app usage, purchases and other functions. I was not happy, but forced to start using it on my teenage son’s iPhone. It just makes our life much easier, less discussion and quarrel.

This function made me realised how many lives could have been saved if cars had a similar function. Imagine your 17-year old speeding with friends Saturday night. You could set a limit on speed using the app provided by the car’s manufacturer. Or set geographical locations where she or he is allowed to drive. You could block for example highways or selected neighbourhoods. So many use scenarios are coming to my mind.
