Well it seems obvious enough that texting while driving is a bad thing, it takes tragic events like the one last week to really bring the point home. The best rule of thumb should be to keep the thumbs on the steering wheel at all times, and avoid even touching the mobile handset.
But since a lot of people aren’t going to listen to this advice, we figured we try and recommend an alternative solution. One is E-Max from Virtual Management Inc. This month service ($19.95 per month) lets users flag VIP contacts so that when messages are sent via e-mail you can receive these most important messages as a voice message. You can then in turn replay via the phone, and the receiver will receive an e-mail with a voice attachment.
