I have ranted that software needs to be stupid before. I am not suggesting that software should not work effectively, in fact, quite the opposite. I just don’t think that software should make assumptions about what I want and it definitely should not override my common sense.
At first blush, their idea has merit. Software that will detect if you are moving at driving speeds and turn off the ability to call and/or text. This may sound great if you are a driver, but what about if you are a passenger? Does this mean that the teenager in the back seat can’t text to her BFF? Even a person that normally drives will occasionally be a passenger therefore they would need to be able to turn the software off.
