Finding a Misplaced Cell Phone, Using Your CatPublished July 29, 2010
Cell phones! They bestow upon us a great degree of versatility, freedom and mobility, yet at the same time can become the bane of our existence. For example: "Have you seen my cell phone?" is one of the most frequently asked questions at our house. I can't tell you how many times during the week either my husband or I spend hours rummaging through piles of newspapers and magazines stacked on the kitchen table, looking diligently between sofa cushions, under beds, in the garage, atop the air conditioner, or even in our mailbox. Since I have a Blackberry with an email account, I am constantly receiving mail. With Facebook loaded on the device, each time a comment or wall post is issued, my phone goes off like crazy, chirping like a grasshopper. I read them, but if I'm in a hurry, I absent-mindedly put the phone down and walk away. And when I get involved in an activity that has no bearing on the messages I read, I immediately forget where the phone is located. What is even more frustrating is if I have the phone set to "vibrate only". It sure is hard to locate a missing phone by calling it when it's on this setting. But the other day I ran across an item caught my interest. And if the video of this device designed to make the lives of cell phone users stress-free, uploaded by Aaron Rift of Thecatdiaries fame, is accurate, I plan to purrchase one immediately. I wonder if our resident device's specifications can be altered for the same use.
