I’ve joked that I would put a GPS chip under Ainsley and Charlotte’s skin if it was socially acceptable.
I guess this is close as I can get right now: It’s the FiLIP…a wearable GPS tracker, phone and watch for kids aged 4 to 11.
Parents can program up to five numbers into the gadget, which kids can call with the touch of a button.
Using the FiLIP app, parents and other preauthorized adults can track the child's location, make calls, send texts and set "SafeZones." (Parents are alerted when a child leaves a safe zone).
So…. Do you think this just ‘good’ technology…or do you think the idea of being able to track your kids is just messed up?
When you think of the 'selfie' you probably think there's a woman in the picture ! We'll guess what? It's more likely to be a man!
Samsung has done some research that finds men take almost double the number of selfies that women do.
A psychologist says the trend has arisen because men see showing off using a smartphone as 'acceptable vanity'.
Psychologist Jo Hemmings tells MailOnline, ‘Selfies are modern day vanity. Men have come to the vanity game later than women.
They’re taking selfies because there’s a technological aspect to them, so they see it as a more acceptable way of revealing their vanity.’
