  • Comparison: Which Apple MacBook is right for you?

    Apple should make upgradable computers. No more soldered RAM or SSD. No more proprietary SSD. No more programmed obsolescence. Protect planet Earth!
    Since most people don't upgrade, even when it was possible, all the extra material used to make every computer upgradable would negate the resources saved by those few that extended the life of the computers by upgrading.

    how the fuck is the iphone suppose to know if you are driving or not?
    There is really only one way that I know of. You would need a connected accessory device mounted in the car such as a BT camera or other BT device which would use a visual image or accurate wireless proximity to determine if the phone was being operated from the driver's seat. The system would obviously be voluntary for adults or could be set in parental controls. That said, I can't see how Apple could be forced to provide that sort of solution. It seems like something a third party should be developing because Apple is not the only cell phone manufacturer. 
    While it would not be foolproof (and would require multi manufacture support) one way would be to allow the phones to detect other phones (probably using BT) in a radius traveling over a certain speed and present them with a dialog to acknowledge being the driver so it can be silenced. If one of the phones does not agree to being the driver's iPhone then all phones will prevent incoming calls and messages until someone fesses up.
