I used to have Billy Connolly voice on mine, it was funny to start with but got irritating after a while.
A worry for anyone living solo. When I do diy involving ladders I put one of my landline phones at the base so if I fall, I dont have to crawl far for 999.Having fallen over getting out of the shower this week and knocking myself out for a bit I suddenly realised that now I live alone if I was to really hurt myself no one would know and in lockdown potentially for weeks.
I’m an IT person and not that old surely I could set up something that triggers an alert message to a friend if not checked in for say 24hrs as a middle aged very fit single man it’s not something that crossed my mind but it’s so easily done, I never thought I could or would slip and fall over and definitely not smack my head on the sink in the process that could have ended very badly.
I've been banging on about thought-mail for years now, I reckon it'll come sooner than we think ... though I think an editing facility prior to sending will be necessaryThat's probably closer than you think, no pun intended. Facebook have probably got a patent on it already.
Edit: Bloody hell, I was only joking.
(Wonders whether my accent is the slightest bit like you imagined):How about a device that 'speaks' in the CC posters/members accents. I sometimes read members posts in their how i imagine them to be accents (if they give their location,or other clues etc). Also...my phone has a thing that reads text messages back to you if you want. Why can't phones read your messages back to you in a certain dialect if you want them to?
To be honest Phil,you aren't one of those i imagine how their accent sounds. But seeing as you've supplied an example i'll now read your posts in that accent.
That would be great for the news for interviewing politicians. Imagine the BS-O-meter going from green (left screen) up to red (right screen). Unfortunately, even a screen in cinerama wouldn't be wide enough to accommodate the BS from Farage et all. You'd need some kind of logarithmic scale...?I'd like to see a BS indicator attached to each post.
