    I could see this being popular for company vehicles too. The businesses might get lower insurance rates for their drivers if they install these devices in their cars.

    Screw that, Im not paying alot of money to disable a phone that I spent alot of money to get those features? Aint gonna happen. Its almost as much as the phone. Second I use my phone while driving, I mount it on my dash and use the turn by turn navigation, which requires data/web access. Next this thing relies on bluetooth communication, therefore if I have my bluetooth off it doesnt connect that seems simple enough that even a teenager can figure it out. This is just another thing thats supposed to take the place of proper upbringing and personal responsibility. In the end it might help commercial fleets reduce their insurance premiums but it will make lil difference. And not only that but Ill tell you right now I dont care what company I work for, unless they buy me a smartphone AND pay monthly service (at which point its not my phone Im just borrowing it), I wouldnt install a voluntary low jack on my personal device.

    I normally don't agree with Remy when he posts, but this made me stand up, tears in my eyes, and applaud.
