AFTER WATCHING MY nearly-two-year-old push on my mobile phone screen to control video playback, I decided that it might be worth my while to convert my double diamond upgrade status into a low cost iPhone. I think I'm into the sales queue with less than €100 to spend and look what I get for the littlest fingers in the house:
- A big screen. Mia will see her favourite video collection on the biggest portable screen in the house.
- A complex messaging system. It's certainly more than two taps in the same place to send a blank text message so that means Mia won't damage the monthly account by playing touchscreen.
- A thick screen frame. Unlike the thin form factor on the SonyEricsson Walkman phone that Mia chewed through, the iPhone's screen is a little thicker and more resistant to those with an impulse to chew.
- Voice Control for tracks. Mia recognises voices of her extended family. We've made some of those clips into MP3 files. It should be a matter of teaching the Voice Control to respond to her call-outs, renaming clips as required. This could be a fun experiment.
The adventure continues.
