What’s Your “ICE”?

The incident in Westminster, London, today is a good reminder to have your “ICE” contacts set up on your phone. “ICE” stands for In Case of Emergency. If you’re in need of help and unable to use your phone, emergency responders will know your ICE contact should be contacted. You can create a new ICE contact in your address book and you can also add this information to your ‘lock’ screen – see this link on how to do it.

Friday Flashback: a mobile phone that can take photos? Whatever next? The comments on this archived BBC page from 2001 are priceless.

“I would use the camera phone to take pictures of my best friend, my dog Benson.”

Someone saw the future!  

And now everything old is new again – Nokia are re-releasing their classic 3310 phone. Demand is expected to be HUGE.
