Butt Dials to 911 are a Growing Problem

9-1-1 false alarms are nothing new. We’ve heard of kids dialing 9-1-1 when there’s no emergency, and we've heard about people calling emergency dispatchers for all the wrong reasons, liked burned hamburgers at fast food restaurants and things.

But have you ever been driving on Highway 59 or Highway 69 and accidently butt-dialed 9-1-1? In the age where everyone has a smart phone that’s always at the ready, accidental pocket-dials to emergency officials are a growing problem.

Texas Schools Put Students on Notice; Be Tracked With Microchip or Else

Things have truly changed since my days of education.  The only identification I possessed in middle school was answering my name to roll call, and in high school, I carried around a student I.D. card.

But, today's unstable climate, is causing an uproar in change, causing some students to rebel against new legislation at their school.

Lines Are Long for the iPhone 5

First I must admit, I'm one of the few without an iPhone. I've been enjoying my beat up old Droid phone with a crack on the screen for quite some time, and when the iPhone 6 comes out in a year or so I'll probably still be rockin' the red-headed step child of the phone world. I do love the Droid.

But millions are flocking for the new iPhone 5 today. Are you one of the lucky ones to snag it?

Are You Addicted to Your Smart Phone?

I read that 20 percent of us check our smart phones every ten minutes.

I hate to admit it, but I'm one of those helpless, pathetic addicts. I just can't stand not knowing what might be going on inside that phone as it sits there on my desk. Has someone sent a text? What new emails have just landed? Maybe I should check Facebook. Perhaps a celebrity couple has broken up....I should see. Stop the madness! But I can't.

If you're not checking your phone every ten minutes, a new Time Mobility Poll says you're probably checking it at least once an hour. And 84 percent can’t go one day with their mobile device at hand. What would we do with our hands if we didn't have our phones? I shudder to think.

U.S. Lands on Mars; What Will Exploration of The ‘Red Planet’ Reveal? [VIDEO]

Don't mean to be critical of the space program (NASA), but is spending money on a trip to Mars really beneficial  --  to anyone?

Considering the price-tag for this overrated movie was 2.5 Billion, I'll bet you that lots of people could have health care coverage today considering the dollars spent on this seven month travel expenditure.
