T-Mobile application for blocking calls and texts while driving

T-Mobile application for blocking calls and texts while driving

A German telecom company, T-Mobile, has come up with an application that will offer mobile users the willpower to decline calls or texts when driving.

The new service, DriveSmart Plus, automatically disables most texting and calling features when a phone senses that it is in motion.

From in.finance.yahoo.com:

“We heard loud and clear from our customers that distracted driving is an issue they care deeply about. They want to help themselves drive responsibly, and they want to make sure their kids are doing the same,” ABC News quoted Torrie Dorrell, T-Mobile USA’s vice president of applications, content and games, as saying.

The 4.99 dollars per month application, developed by Emeryville, Calif.-company Location Labs, will be available to T-Mobile customers with Android smartphones.

When activated, the DriveSmart application determines how quickly a phone is switching between cell phone towers. When it senses that the phone is moving faster than 10 mph, within a few minutes, it automatically sends phone calls to voicemail or a hands-free Bluetooth headset (depending on which version the customer selects). It sends text messages to a user’s inbox.

Depending on the phone, the application can also disable audible alerts so that the driver isn’t even aware of incoming messages.

DriveSmart allows drivers to override the service for an emergency call or if users want to override the feature while they’re in the passenger seat.

Gold and Sensex beaten by Silver in 2010

January 10th, 2011 by James

Gold and Sensex beaten by Silver in 2010Silver may be considered as the poor cousin of gold but it sparkled more than gold and stock market benchmark Sensex in 2010 in terms of returns for investors.

The year 2010 saw silver shining more than the stock markets as the shiny metal soared to a 30-year high. Silver prices were able to register a whopping 65 per cent growth in domestic markets and a 75 per cent jump in the US.

From in.finance.yahoo.com:

In the process, it surpassed the Sensex, which saw a modest growth of a little over 15 per cent in the year gone by. Gold didn’t glitter much as well, rising by just about 25 per cent during the year.

Analysts attributed the smart growth in prices of silver to the risky nature of equities, which prompted investors to shift their funds to safer havens such as precious metals, thereby enhancing investment demand.

“Amidst the ongoing European debt crisis and the Federal Reserve and other central banks pumping in money into economies to shore up the recovery, investors turned cautious toward the stock markets,” said an expert.

“In normal circumstances gold is preferred as a safe bet for hedge against inflation, but looking at the historical highs of the yellow metal, investors turned their focus toward the ‘poor man’s gold (silver)’ which was still on the sidelines,” Unicon Securities Vice-President (Research) Madhumita Ghosh said.

A weaker greenback also boosted prices of silver, as commodities denominated in dollars became cheaper for holders of other currencies.

The major factor that played a significant role in the rally in silver prices besides investment demand was inflationary expectations in the US that triggered buying of the precious metal as a safe and alternate investment.

Oil steadies above $91 before release of US inventory data

January 6th, 2011 by James

Oil steadies above $91 before release of US inventory dataOil steadied above $91 a barrel today ahead of U.S. inventory data expected to show a drawdown in crude and distillate stocks in the world’s largest oil user.

The NYMEX crude for February delivery slipped seven cents to $91.42 a barrel by 0531 GMT (12:31 a.m. ET), while ICE Brent crude fell 14 cents to $94.24.

From in.news.yahoo.com:

U.S. oil prices climbed to a 26-month high of $91.88 on Monday, driven by a broad spectrum of factors ranging from the dollar and cold weather to OPEC and surging global fuel demand.

“Investors are especially keen to follow whatever factor is most supportive of prices moving higher,” said analysts at Cameron Hanover in a research note.

Bullish money managers have stormed into the oil market, setting a fresh record high for net long crude positions on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

Oil’s rally looked all the more secure due to rhetoric from several OPEC ministers, who have signaled $100 was a fair price.

Crude’s rise, however, took a breather early Wednesday on forecasts for warmer temperatures in the snow-slammed U.S. Northeast, curbing demand in the world’s top heating oil market.

Tetsu Emori, a fund manager at Tokyo-based Astmax Co Ltd, said, “Oil is tracking the cold weather in the Northeast of the United States and also the dollar against the euro.”
