Use ICE for your Mobile phone emergency contact number

I just received this incredibly useful idea via email today to ensure you get the most rapid response and suppport in case of an emergency where you need medical help.

— Apparently this is a standard procedure all paramedics follow at the scene of an accident when they come across your cell phone.

ICE
– ‘In Case of Emergency’ We all carry our mobile phones with names & numbers stored in its memory but nobody, other than ourselves, knows which of these numbers belong to our closest family or friends.

If we were to be involved in an accident or were taken ill, the people attending us would have our mobile phone but wouldn’t know who to call. Yes, there are hundreds of numbers stored but which one is the contact person in case
of an emergency? Hence this ‘ICE’ (In Case of Emergency) Campaign. 
  
The concept of ‘ICE’ is catching on quickly. It is a method of contact during emergency situations. As cell (mobile) phones are carried by the majority of the population, all you need to do is store the number of a contact person or
persons who should be contacted during emergency under the name ‘ICE’ (In Case Of Emergency). 
  
The idea was thought up by a paramedic who found that when he went to the scenes of accidents, there were always mobile   phones with patients, but they didn’t know which number to call. He, therefore, thought that it would be a good idea if there was a nationally recognized name for this purpose. In an emergency situation, Emergency Service personnel and hospital Staff would be able to quickly contact the right person by simply dialing the number you have stored as ‘ICE.’

For more than one contact name simply enter ICE1, ICE2 and ICE3 etc. A great idea that will make a difference!  
Let’s spread the concept of ICE by storing an ICE number in our Mobile phones today! 
    

  ICE will speak for you when you are not able to.

Blackberry Storm (iPhone killer) just Announced

This is literally hot off the presses. I am a long time blackberry user and I’ve been pondering the shift to the new Google Phone mostly because less than 3G is like Chocolate chip cookies without the chips. My BB crawls and it’s tiresome. Nothing like looking remotely for some new graphic ideas for a web design project and sitting their watching the “connecting” messages sit their like a smiling Buddha. I don’t have that kind i of patience.  The BlackBerry Storm is the first touch screen BlackBerry device and one of the first I have ever heard of that has a display with real feedback.

The press release states that the screen actually depresses slightly when pressed and the user feels this with a gentle “click” when released. This type of positive touch screen should give the end user a better touch experience and I can’t wait to try it out. The Storm also adds support for multi-touch, taps, slides and other gestures. Like the iPhone, the Storm has an integrated accelerometer so you can switch from portrait to landscape with either the SureType (portrait) or full QWERTY (landscape) keyboard appearing.

Other specs for the BlackBerry Storm include support for Verizon’s 3G network, 3.2 megapixel camera, integrated GPS receiver, integrated Documents To Go software for full Office document functionality, 1GB of onboard memory with a microSD slot, 3.5mm headset jack, Bluetooth radio with A2DP support, 480×360 display, and 1400 mAh removable rechargeable battery. It does not have a WiFI radio, but with Verizon’s extensive 3G network you should be covered quite well for wireless data access.
