And with new mobile phone applications -- running the gamut from "400 Pick-Up Lines" for your precocious teenager, to "Easy Bartender" which seemingly eases your child's screeching intoxication to Drunkendom -- more misdirections for youngsters which their moms would surely react with total violence, and shrieking disbelief like a wailing banshee. Picture your mom with curlers, screaming her heart out, tearing her hair, gritting her teeth, sporting discombobulated eyes like Garfield's . Even I won't have my teenager Krishna go near these.
iFart Mobile, Fart Remote, 20th Century Martini on my kid's phone ... Are you serious ??? (*&#)$(*^!)^@!!!!! Unless he would learn these stuff elsewhere... Oh boy.
"Here's an example of something your kids probably aren't ready for. This program allows you to operate virtually on anyone in your phone's contact list. It's not for the squeamish. Fortunately, the iPhone's parental controls make it easy to lock out applications that are rated as appropriate for those 17 and older, and this is one of them."
400 Pickup Lines
"This application is all about harmless fun. That said, if you haven't locked down your kid's iPhone yet, avail yourself of the parental controls now. You do not want your pre-teen trying out this application's pickup lines in the schoolyard."
"Teenagers are like dogs. By which we mean there are some sounds only they can hear. This application gives you an opportunity to exact some revenge--via the "Annoy-A-Teen"--on the kiddos. Enjoy."
"The iPhone's powerful graphics make it a great platform for applications that show off trippy visual illusions. This application seems like just another one of those, until it shows you a scary picture and screams at you. Boo!"
Rim shot and Crickets
"Just what your little smart aleck needs: backup. Ugh. This application puts tools such as the sound of a golf clap, chirping crickets and the classic rim shot at your fingertips. Now you'll know what junior really thinks of all your jokes."
"This application is exactly what it sounds like. Ba-dum-dum."
"Lock and load, baby. Jerk the phone back to cock the slide on this virtual shotgun, then blast away. It's perfectly safe, just somewhat annoying. So don't take this thing hunting."
"This is a fine application--for adults. But if you find this handy guide to mixing adult beverages on your kid's BlackBerry, it's time to have a long talk."
"This application isn't ready yet. That's a good thing; it will give you time to prepare. This software can secure an Android phone so that it can only be unlocked via an Iris scan, among other tricks. Clever. The only problem: If your kid is protecting his phone with this much security, you might want to have a look at what he or she is keeping from your prying eyes."
"Seeing a pattern here? Enough said. "
