On the surface, NY State assemblyman Felix Ortiz's push to ban iPhone video calling from roads makes sense. It would be horribly unsafe! But then you realise that it would be impossible, and you shake your head.
Yes, about three minutes of fact checking on Mr Ortiz's part would have provided him with the info that iPhone 4 FaceTime videocalling is a Wi-Fi only feature, making video calling while driving pretty much impossible. Unless you've got a Wi-Fi hotspot in your car, you won't be video calling anyone.
But hey, I'm glad you're doing such important work, Ortiz. You clearly deserve to be in a place of power in our government. Keep it up. [NY Mag]
