Life Is Just So Daily

F.U. Yahoo, F.U. Kelsey Mays, and F.U to that article that you wrote.

So...I just log onto yahoo.com.
I'm a yahoo fan.

Little clipit on there for me to click & read all about "Top 10 Scariest New Car Features" by Kelsey Mays.

What should I encounter...but #2 on the countdown...

"2. Heart-Rate Monitor
You read correctly. Volvo's Personal Car Communicator monitors the cabin and pulses a light on your keyfob if your car has an unexpected visitor inside. TV ads show a woman approaching her S80 in a deserted parking garage, seeing the warning and hightailing it away. The thought of having this feature is scary in and of itself — not for fear of being carjacked, but because we wonder what sort of paranoia would drive you to want it."

And Ladies & Gentlemen who know me---you know I have a response.
Kelsey Mays: has it dawned on you that this feature MAY save a life?
Why piss on something that you know nothing about?
If you don't want to buy this technology---then don't buy it.
But don't bash something that could save the life of a child. Do you think there is a single parent out there that has a lost a child due to accidentally leaving them in their car, who wouldn't give ANYTHING to turn back time? To undo that day/that moment? Do you think that all children who die in hot cars/cold cars are left there intentionally by parents who did not/do not love them? None of us can imagine forgetting our children in our own cars... none of us think that it will happen to us. But, it does. It happens to parents all the time. Children die because of this.

And you, Kelsey Mays...whoever you are...you have the taken the opportunity to applaud & embrace this technology, and just blown it. It's just such a shame that with such a large audience that could have been reached by your words that you didn't fully explore what this technology has to offer us.

Sadly---I'm just sayin'.

I so want it. And yes I am paranoid. I don't care what Kelsey Mays thinks it would give me peace of mind as a single girl.

Didn't she go to that safety training about looking in your backseat before you get in? Of course, then you're right there and if there's anyone there it's almost too late.

I wouldn't have thought about it being a way to alert people that there's a little person in a car who doesn't need to be, but that totally makes sense. What a wasted opportunity to let people know that there's a) a problem and b) at least one car that can help.

I'd want the technology too. So many things that we just wouldn't think of could really help us. Could've helped Riley and could've helped women who have been abducted, etc.

Wow. Way to get angry at someone and take it personal just because they have a different opinion than you.
