When Apple releases the iOS 11 operating system later this year, a long-awaited, life-saving feature will be included. The new iPhone distracted driving mode, (actually called “Do Not Disturb While Driving”) will silence notifications while you’re driving, and auto-reply to text messages as well.
Maybe you’ve already read statistics on the 100 deadliest days of summer for teen drivers, but there’s more that you need to know! And more importantly, more that you can do to protect yourself!
Yes, the statistics are alarming and tragic for the time-frame of Memorial Day to Labor Day, historically known as the ‘100 deadliest days’. This year, AAA reports that the number of teen drivers involved in fatal collisions is up 10% overall, and specifically in the summer months is increased by 26% compared to other months of the year.
After playing in the distracted driving prevention arena for a few years each, both the Drive BeeHive and TextNinja teams saw the need for something more. We have always promoted the power of joining forces, and now we’ve really gone and done it… (and no, it’s NOT called BeeNinja!)
No Starbucks drink has ever been as magical as the new Unicorn Frappuccino (at least marketing magic if nothing else). In a matter of just a few days, it has swept the nation. Some praise the sugar-laden drink, and although it is okay to #treatyoself occasionally, the frappe has some valid criticisms too.
The color-changing, mango-based cream frappuccino with a layer of sour is evidently so difficult to make that Starbucks baristas are flipping out. But we don’t care how magical or stressful, no drink should ever cause you to drive distracted.
Just how does a startup company go from idea to market with a solution to texting and driving? Listen in on this episode of Product Talk to get an inside look. Our very own Jess Goodwin sits down to chat with Jason Edgecomb from EX3 Labs.
