Jenny McCarthy bad example for parents everywhere

jennymacarthyJenny McCarthy on her Sirius radio show did what a parent should never do in front of a child.  She was texting while driving.  Her twelve-year-old son Evan called the cops.

To punish her son, she threw his cell phone out the window.  She laughed about it, however both things she did were very dangerous. Throwing things out of car windows can hit a windshield and cause an accident.

Cadillac takes wireless charging cue with Powermat in emblematic move

ccadillacwirelessGM announced that Cadillac will add wireless charging of smartphones in the 2015 model ATS sport sedan and coupe launching this fall. The wireless charging will be compatible with Powermat and other in-phone wireless charging technologies, therefore  once inside the car, you place the smartphone on the mat and you don’t have to connect a cord to charge it.

Because people keep their smartphones with them all day and Bluetooth uses a lot of battery juice, wireless charging in cars is an ideal solution.
