Yes I Am Oblivious

A special message for today from Rudy Texter, president and CEO of Yes I Am Wireless:

There's suddenly a lot of talk about how "dangerous" it is to use your cell phone in the car. As president of a company that is a cell phone provider, I am very concerned about customer safety. Obviously, it's not good business to let the people who buy our service get involved in collisions. Yes I Am Wireless is opposed to crashes of all kinds. To suggest otherwise is ludicrous.

Having said that, I do feel compelled to add that if you do get into a fender bender or worse, isn't it a great relief to know you have Yes I Am's Worldwide Network at your disposal?

Even before your mangled wheels have stopped turning, you can call your 12 closest friends (The Designated Dozen®) at no charge to tell them what just happened, update your Facebook status, send a Tweet to your followers, inform your insurance company that a claim is on the way, call for a tow truck, find a body shop, summon police to come ticket the other driver (who was obviously at fault) and, if you think you need it, you can even call an ambulance!

Well meaning people can certainly disagree about cell phones and driver distraction.

At Yes I Am Wireless, we believe in promoting discussion, although frankly, our busy lives don't always allow us the time and space necessary to have a substantive debate. Often, the most peaceful place for gathering and organizing our thoughts is in the car, on the way home from a busy day at work. And at that golden moment, when all your best arguments are formed and all your powers of observation are focused, who is there to listen?
No one!

That's why, when you purchase a Pocket Savant® from Yes I Am Wireless, you can choose the Cronies and Collaborators Package® (which comes with a free Hands Free Freedom Interface®) , giving you the highly productive option to simultaneously include up to a dozen other people (expressing as many as 200 different viewpoints) in a Yes I Am Mobile TalkMob® Conference Call! Now, no matter what debate you're having, all the stakeholders can ride!
Problem solved!

Let's use technology to sort out our feelings about using technology! Yes I Am Wireless is willing to foster the discussion as we move onward from here into the future of everything!

Interesting viewpoint from Rudy, who is a sponsor so I have nothing to add. Do you use your cell phone while the car is in motion?
