Hands-Free E-Mail

A NewsFactor report on a service that provides hands-free access to e-mail while driving suggests this is a bad thing, that we don't need any more distractions. But I'd much rather somebody be listening to their e-mail than fiddling with their BlackBerry while guiding the steering wheel with their elbows. I've seen plenty of drivers doing that here in DC, so if they are at least looking at the road while dealing with e-mail that's an improvement. Of course, we're already seeing innovations to help CrackBerry addicts avoid the "BlackBerry dunk."
