One of the developers here has just come up with an excellent idea.

Ever had a few to many to drink and started ringing up people you normally wouldn't? (Or like one guy we heard of, rings up his boss' work landline at 4am and leaves a message saying what a @~!$%£* he is and how his wife rules his life... )
Why not invent a cell phone with a breathalyzer attached? You can then pre-program the phone with either an inclusion or exclusion list of people you are allowed (or not allowed) to phone when you are over the set alcohol limit.

"But who’s to say you won’t modify the list when you are sober?" I hear you ask. The answer? You also wouldn't be able to modify the list unless you pass the breathalyzer test.
And for those who are in the habit of getting drunk while home alone, they could have a landline with the same device.

What you think? Good idea? How long before someone does this?


How else would developers make the world a better place?
