Senator Conroy's Toddler Tech Troubles Continue

Last year, our broadband leader Senator Stephen Conroy confessed that his daughter had locked him out of his iPhone. It seems the younger Conroy is continuing to be a digital thorn in her father's side, and has now taken to messing with his alarm clock.

Conroy made an appearance at the launch of a new HP data centre project for Western Sydney this morning, but was delayed by almost an hour. Much of that was down to plane issues and traffic problems in Melbourne, but Conroy confessed that there was also a toddler factor:

I would like to just blame the planes, but my four year old turned the alarm off.

We'd hope that wasn't an iPhone alarm anyway, given the reliability problems that has experienced. Either way it looks like getting a second alarm clock - or perhaps organising a phone-based reminder service - might be a good idea for the Senator. Championing the NBN is tricky if you sleep in.
