Verizon wants to be your Daddy just this Wireless Safety Week

Verizon wants to be your Daddy just this Wireless Safety Week
In a funny attempt to mark the ongoing Wireless Safety Week, Verizon Wireless has compiled a list of tips and tricks they thought you might find useful. While we have to give them credit for trying, the tips are full of common sense logic that will be the only thing you need leaving your home with your cellphone, instead of Verizon's safety list.

Take a charger and a headset on long car rides, don't leave your phone in the sun, or learn how to text in emergencies are all commendable advices, which, if you cannot give yourself, you shouldn't probably be driving in the first place.

The only safety tips that bring added value here are the ones that point to paid apps for different devices on the Verizon network. The advice to buy the WeatherBug or Safe Sun UV Monitor/Timer apps we can somewhat stomach, but will Boater's Checklist keep us safe at sea, or will Multi-Purpose Safety illuminate our path with the phone's LED while jogging in the dark remains to be tested.

For the full laundry list plus some laughs, click on the source link.
