New Rising Media: "London's Metropolitan Police have started requesting people turn on their smartphone's Wi-Fi in the city centre on nights out, as they will begin to broadcast 'rape prevention and personal safety messages' around the danger of alcohol-related crimes.
A pretty interesting technological implementation into the increasing night-time economy around Christmas time, aimed to highlight both the "risks" to your safety that come from alcohol and a warning message to potential criminals who take advantage of the drunks. The Sapphire Command unit within the Met are sending these messages to anybody within the vicinity of a set amount of key nightclub hotspots in London, such as the Proud Galleries, Ministry of Sound and Infernos."
Some people mocked the original iPhone when it launched, and the Samsung Galaxy Note provoked much mirth for being too big, but both defied their critics with strong sales and spawned sequels that are still going strong. The phones we’re looking at here had a different fate. They may have pointed the way for the future of smartphones, but they failed to capitalize on it.
Shake it like a smartphone printer. Actually, no. Don't shake it. Your prints will be ready in ten seconds.
