We cannot guarantee that Android is designed to be safe, the format was designed to give more freedom. When people talk about 90% of malware for Android, they must of course take into account the fact that it is the most popular operating system in the world. If I had a company dedicated to malware, I would also be addressing my attacks on Android.
The first person to crack and look at their phone picks up the check.
Our (initial) purpose of the game was to get everyone off the phones free from twitter/fb/texting and to encourage conversations.
1) The game starts after everyone has ordered.
2) Everybody places their phone on the table face down.
3) The first person to flip over their phone loses the game.
4) Loser of the game pays for the bill.
5) If the bill comes before anyone has flipped over their phone everybody is declared a winner and pays for their own meal.
-Starting the game after everyone is seated.
-In the rare event that multiple people flip their phones simultaneously, the bill is split between said players.
– Feel free to invoke penalties/strikes systems.
– No touching or messing with anybody else’s phones.
– You don’t have to stack the phones. This was done for picture taking purposes.
– I realize I should perhaps think of a different name for this awesome game. Because I don’t mean to imply that everyone who checks their phone during meals is a di*k.
– I recommend not being such a stickler or hardass on people about the rules and even initiation of the game. Basic premise is to just get people open to the idea of staying active and attentive to one another. But if someone has to take a call; they have to take a call =).
– Have fun! It’s really more of a fun concept in this new age high tech life of ours. Conversation is the spice of life.
They all have iPhone’s then a nokia.
This is going to happen next time we go to dinner with friends.
The ACLU of California’s new report on cell phone privacy shows that most California school districts are failing to provide students, teachers and staff with clear policies that balance students’ legal right to privacy with the need for safety and order.
Contact your school administrators to make sure they’re respecting your student’s rights. Schools should create cell phone policies that explicitly prohibit unreasonable cell phone searches that require searches of student property to be limited to investigating only the alleged violation.
Instead of targeting devices or thinking about mobile vs. desktop, you design so that your design works in a continuum of screen sizes. A sidebar might move to the bottom on a small-enough screen, for instance. Sounds totally sensible, and avoids all these junky “mobile experiences” that are so detestable.
