The world is is serious trouble, when even the Good Guys are complete morons.
Here’s a thought: sue Apple and Motorola and whoever, because they “should know” that their products could be used in unsafe (or maybe even illegal) situations.
There’s precedent: people have sued gun makers.
Sue the auto maker, for making a car that someone can drive with one (or zero) hand on the wheel.
I’ve been working on an Onion-like piece for a few years now: “Ohio Man Sues Everybody” – about a guy who blames everybody on Earth for his utter failure. Including his lawyer, who only takes the case because he’ll get a third of the $300 quintillion-dollar judgement.
It isn’t that he encourages people to call him “Skippy”, although that’s a serious cause for concern. It’s that he’s betting that he will get a jury that will find by a reasonable preponderance of greed, envy, and stupid that one must respond to a text message immediately, no matter what.
Sorry, but practicing law makes a person a mite cynical.
