S01E9: Techno-parenting

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

How much screen time is too much? We share the first video games we played, what ages kids should have phones, and discuss the technology at our kids' fingertips.

Normally we like to record theseepisodes after our kids have gone to bed, but this episode is being recordedearlier in the evening all thanks to technology. Yes, technology, IPAs,laptops, kindles and video games. Technology has been keeping parents,sane and kids quiet for years, go out and get your kids some technology.Today, INER EWARS s screen time R Day, Ror,most children, s eeteme O, be mit. Ti Ri Tilern, under than twenty oremonthsacenting tossonntrus of technogy to BA strict children, no Texi in driving brprohbibted by law. Huge. Thank you to today's sponsor technology, prettygreat. What would we do without it? I know right, hey what was the firstvideo game you ever used like the first device. First, video game. Let me thinkabout that. For a minute I remember mine, we hade this tiny hand held, said Nintendo the brand on it, but itwas black and white, small pre game boy, really small, and it there were theselittle firemen that you would move back and forth, and there were these babiesjumping out of a burning building and you would lanch them like babies, eerPema they war like ring, Love Tat. They were ciny people. The firemen were liket like stick figures, and then the babies were like Tinier, stick figureso, like hids jumping out of a like a orphanage okay, it was on fire and youwould catch them and then they would bounce to the right twice. So you hadto go back and forth to catch them as they were coming out of the buildingand then catch them a and then, if you didn't catch them, they would hit theground and die, but wasn't blood or anything. It was just like a little.You could tell you knew that they were Hizard. Oddly enough, this sounds likean IOS game, APP that I saw one of our kids download the early, whereas, likeyeah people dying and swhy Hadd'do, you look at t, it was called bouncingbabies. It was babies that mit still exists and they could download it. Ohyou mean like they were yeah they're, the Galas called BELSINL beboucingbabies. I looked at aut this as like in...

...the early eighties right and it wasNintendoye. Oh my Gosh, you can play it now on a Retro Games site it's kind ofnuts right, but it was so fun. We fought over it. My I remember mybrothers like waiting right by my elbow to play and as soon as I was done,thewere, like my turn, the the only thing we had in the whole House thatlike had batteries and yeah, that's amazing, so other than the classic nesthat we had growing up. I think that was our first gaming console. I had aspeaking spell oh yeah, like the limer that had computer boxd with a keyboardand it was like the computer monotone voice and it was spelling games yeah. Ithink that was lean first official screen time that I had as a kid, and Idon't know that my siblings had a ton of technology they're much older thanme notsolder. I don't know that they had a lot of games, but that was thefirst one that I remember having and we would all kind of fight over it Eah howmuch screen time would you get like minutes or well? It is I mean we hadlike the one game that we'd share with all four kids, but it's not like there was anythingelse right. screentime was totally different back then yeah. I remember Iwould get it for like a minute. I get it until I died until I you had likethrough like if three babies died, youyour turn was overscreen time asdifferent back then too, because you have what double a or probably see ordsize batteries inn little pill. Batteries ste the battery dies, yetd it'slike, nomore screen time Il six months. We can convince mom or dad to go GE anybatteries wt we did watch TV, we didn't have cable, but we had local networkchannels. I eereatching cosby show Okay Yeh, we watched cosby show, but you Iremember you talking about cable t v shows I never saw any of those. Wellyes, and no, so we didn't get cable until I was a little bit older as a kid.I remember we would watch channel five and that had in the afternoons. Its wasgreat. We'd have we'd, do oven, Bake French bred pizzasfrom costico and we'd, sit down and watch. I Love Lucy like every day anygriffith show like during the summer, O...

Kno en there's nothing going on, andit's too hot 'cause, it's Arizona and it's always too hot. I Love Lucy, AndyGriffith show you know some of those old timy shows before we got cable andthen I got into like saved by the bell all of the classics. Yes, you're,pretty good asame by the Bel Tivi. I should have had that be the Gan. I beanyone out there to compete against me and saved by the bell. Trivu I', I'mprobably a little bit rusty. I have not seen anything. I've never seen you miss.The question comment to question. Col will know the answer ring. It Jo does't SA Google yeah. We watched family matters tool time okayth, the O. that,like I feel like I was older by the time. I I don't remember it when I wasa kid I E. I do remember watching Saturday morning cartoons a we wouldwake up super early and go watch cartoons on Saturday all morning. Wellen our kids, don't even watch official T v today, Theyllno watch something onNetflix, so our older addy will watch something on Netflix, but they'llreally just turn on you tube and just watch whatever L Ke. They don't watchregular T V, I know, and then they just go to like the videos like this one andyou know w at they watch a lot. You know this that it's like instructionalvideos are like opening. It's like they're, watching someone open anLaldel or a shopkin totally, and it's like the description videos of theunpackaging of an lol doll. I love, as you watch other kids playing with toys.You have these exact same toys go play with them yourself. No, no! No! No!It's more fun! To Watch this othe wach another disthirty year old living inhis parents' basement, pretend pertending to play toys and it'sfascinating for them. So I would feel a lot of Gilt if I let my kids watchscreentime all Saturday morning, but I don't think my kids, my parents reallyfelt guilty about that. I mean holdonwe, we don't Reallyr, our kids probably watch screen time andshows all Saturday morning. That's true! We just don't know about it. We're nothere to see it. We go and play San Volleyball, Yeah Addi watches the kids.Here, it's a standing practice that every Saturday morning for a few hours,we're just not home other parents are...

...taking their kids on hikes. You know wedo that as well. Jisather D, Notsta y more Saturday afternoon, Ye evening come home, go swimming with everyone.We do family things so, but why do we feel so much gilt for letting my kidshave screentime? If I'm here and I've got stuff, I've got to do I'll. Letthem have screen time, but I have so much guilt well. This is this is whatit comes down to for me. I remember taking our kids as infants into thedoctor and the pediatricians would say: Hey no screen time at all until they'retwo years old right and they had that drilled in mybrain that, oh, I can't let my kid play with my phone. I can't turn on the TVlike. That was a big thing for us as young parents. I don't know that ourparents got that morning well and it just didn't exist like I didn't, havescreen to watch all the time, so yeah a few hours of T v here and there, but itwasn't wasn't like our kids have now, where they've access to so mu, yeah'cause, I'm Goingna Watch, I love Lucy, but I'm not going to watch, judgeWalkner, O o Goin to est you couldn't watch hours and hours. There was no enoun demand and there was no ondemand yeah. So I do think s that sometimesthey use fear tactics right. Like no screen, I mean what are the reasons wejust know like it's what's going to melt their brain? No! It's! If your kidwatches screen time under the age of two they're going to grow up to bedumber and a bag of hammers yeah at's, that I believe I believe that they willbe dum, which mayor may not be accurate, but there are articles that that teachus some things about why we shouldn't sure. So we were reading one from Um,the Mao Clinic, which is always the ultimate athority right. Oh T,themathey they're talking about. If I ever have to get out of something atwork, I can say I've Goen to p a doctor's appointment and E. Like E H,I'm not sure, and then I say: Oh it's it that Mao Clinic, Oh ah, that yeayeah, which it is I mean hey, props, to the malclinic potential sponsor, don'twant to don't wok dog that can cover all our ma medical bill, yeah yeah, sotechnology sponsor Mao. I think I...

...mentioned sleep number as a potentialsponsor. We actually did end up going with the sleep number bed. So thanksfor that sponsor Shabel athleve number backars at the cost a little bit. So Iwas looking on that article and once they're five, it said a couple afterage. Two was saying one hour, but it has to be extremely educational music,something like that that they will actually be beyindsteime snarnd fromwell that those were all recalled. Do you remember Thaly 'cause they hadclaimed that they were educational home and then it turned out. They couldn'tprove it and they had to recall all of them and everybody got their money. Soit turns out that Alberdeinstein wasn't the executive producer. Babehindtimetalk are interesting, but o five years sorry were ugnited. Thou ICARSE, it'slike Abraham Lincon, always said. Qutes on the Internet are always unreliable.'cause, it's impossible to verify their authenticthat's funny lion would haveloved the Internet. Thin. U himse currency laugh that wasn't Croywll! Ijust telt bad cutting you on was going tosay anytime, you say ha, that's funny!That's a courtesy! Laugh Ann Se Laugh Iny, that's funoh, honey! That's sofunny, Dad, Jo! So after the age of five, it said twohours that kid on have two hours, but it should still be educational and thenas they grow. I was reading. It said that we should keep in mind that poor quality screen time has beenlinked to do on hear the list. These the SCIRT territors ARD. This is thescare tack Ta like who Obesity Noe, Dowat irregular sleep schedules. No doknot. Behavioral problems, definitely not loss of social skills, an scaredviolence wo the last one. Usually they save the worst for last right. Yourlast one here is less time for play, that's not so bad! I love that I clamther for e last Thoug, no that'Syeah, let's lead with I'm sure that someonein the room was saying: Hey. We've got...

...this article, these tips on reasons whypeople parents should have oin H, screentim time for their older children.Let's do t in this order and someone else came in asent no Nonono, let'sSich up the order, switch up this order. Let's go with the scariest scare onride away and then esast time for play at the end. Hat'so then itwas talking about olderkids as your kids get older, that you should still prioritize unstructured.playtime yeah, create tech, free zones like meal times and homework. Theyshouldn't be using screen at Homework, which I've had some frustrations 'cause,I feel like more and more. All of their homework is screen time. It's all onthe laptop of the Yar there's a lot. This piece isn't necessarily screentime, but when I'm helping them with homework, there'll be a math problem. Tthat I don't know so I always say Alexa. What is this number an this Arbi cogleyeah? She didn't hear me didn't turn on. I was word. I said it quietly. I kindaSaidyeah, but I feel like that might be US using technology or screen time tohelp our kids. Is that a bad example? Maybe we're like theywe're teachingthem? If you don't know Google it, instead of trying to learn and rememberhow to do it, yeah it's tric, it's tricky because we are. Our generationis the first generation that is using technology with our kids sor settingthe example we're setting the stone the tone of how they should be usingtechnology screen time and yeah. They look to us for an example and I'vefirst sure gotten that where I say no, you can't have screen time and they'relike. Where are you on your phone and my excusis? Who Pays for all ofthis? Why, when I wy yeah, I have differentrules. Your child rules don't apply to mireally. True, though, that if we'reon screen we're total hypocrites Ouran, they can't be. You know I have aninteresting story about that, so that my my current employer, they offer anonline application that helps with the well being of their employees. It'sactually a really cool program. It's in partnership with Ariana Huffington'scompany and with this partnership,...

...employees are able to take assessments,just there's five or six different assessments. Ten fifteen questions,each about their mental health and readiness to be at work, and one of theassessments is on sleep. Are you getting enoughsleep and there's tenquestions that you answer? One of the assessments is your relationship withtechnology, so I went through and I was completing a demo of this product for aprospect I went through, and I completed this assessment that talksabout my relationship with technology, and I answered it honestly and Isqorted about fifty percent and I was kind of embarrassed, but what wasreally cool is based on this partnership that we haveyour score, will align with recommended articles mmthat. You should read sobased on the score that I got. Fifty percent go read an online article orten months ago, Bithe, article th headthe article that it recommended wason written by Ariona Huffington and the title was parenting well distracted. Soit was all about tips that you can do to parent while being not distracted bytechnology. If that makes sense being not distracted, do you feel like you'vedone better, since you read that article? Oh, I didn't read the Y Your Sam limit was, I was busychecking my instane, so we have set screen time limits forour kids. When I checked my own, you know how you can see what you'respending screen time on ear. We use ot own apple, built into the settings. Letme see what it's called. It's called screen time right, yeah right there, yes, screen time see you can track yourdon't look at my don't judge me. I use my phone for wor when I checked my ne ea this so yeah you can click on your settings. You can go to the screen timeap and it shows you your daily average which, when I checked my- and I waslike this- is wrong. This can't be O, but you users for work yeah, sir 'relike checking tex ofemails and stuff, but yeah that all can tha certain game. AP. You can see howmuch time you's been on our really snow,...

...yeah individual APPs, you can see and NI o delet. I got TA delete some APSoff my phone that I spent too much time on for se. That's interesting that wecould set limits for our kids and we did you canset so that they only have acertain amount of tie screen time period. You can set specific apps thatyou don't want them to be able to use or use less time on certain APPS andthere used to be third party ops. That would allow you to do this, but nowthat apple has this built in it's, it's really convenient ecause. I can go inand I consider a daily limit for my kids. If it's two hours, I can do that.I can approve more time aff fom mysestimor. They can request more timefor specific gaps. We can approve time for fifteen minute thirty minute hour,long increments, it's really been a great tool for us to help manage thatscreen. temcause. If it didn't, if it I it went unmanaged, they would just be more like oer, an a bag, an Haorso, so th, that's one thing that Maoclenixhad to do, which we do well, I feel like is setting those limits at leastUm and also having them charge. Devices outside of their room. Wouldi have donethat yeah yeah, making sure they dicharge we make hem charge theirbedroom drop stairs. So we make hem charge downstair, we don't let 'em havescreen in their rooms at all Esaonto theren, because they'rebeen ecording,this poet, usually they're. You know downstairs in in a public area ifthey're on room, so all Theu Se, I'm looking a mail and it's saying you knowmake sure their screen is where you can see it. So you can kind of monitor whattypes of things they're spending time on on the screen and and yeah. I coulddefinitely see the imporance speaking of and we can come back to the mail if,if you're not done ther Wennings, okay, all but speaking of w unlasting, itjust said to eliminate background T V, which we never do that, but a lot ofpeople do or you'll walk in and the just have the TV O. I do that when Itravel for work. I always turn the Hoel a hotel T V on and just have itbackground but Y A. I don't know why it doesn't have anything to do with my swa.You Miss Your family, so ust so much so you youd talked about monitoring andthere are a couple of aps out there...

...that I thought were really cool N andthis goes back to the idea of how old should a child B when they get cellphone or a smartphone, we're pretty strict on this, maybe more strict thanothers. Our daughter comes home every day and says all of my friends havebrand new IPHONDS. So I got a bone to pick with all the parents that are thefriends of my kids' friends or parents of my kids, friends Um. Why are we letting our kids havesmartphones at eleven twelve thirteen? And you can justify this? All you want Ye.Oh, you know I need to keep track of 'em. I need they've got practice. Well,we grew up withal without all of that, all you're doing right now is being ahelicopter baret. That's that's wmy Alis tricky because we have to givearch kid one, because all the everything is texted anymore. Theynever call each other and that's why I miss outon yeah, some of the socialthings, but there's smart Poun, its difference between having either asmartphone or a flipphone, or even our uses old phones of ours that aren'tactive in and they can do everything that they need to on Wyfi. They gotface time. They've got messages, they rand new IFE. On ten that has phoneservice. I don't want Ta. I don't want to spend all that money, but there isanother apt that I wanted to talk about. This is the text now a we don this onon our kids phone. It gives the KID IPHON number, because once again, ourkids do have phones, but they're not activated, so they have to use it onWifi, but there are other kids out there who maybe have an android fomthat they can't use apple messages when text. Now you download it you log inyou, create a profile hit, gives you a local phone number and then you can usethat phone number to text and make phone calls to people who don't haveapple messages and to o wife. I still ray over Wyi but t'sbeing very foaveemail as that yeah doesn't use in email. She can contact all of Er friends whoaren't on apple and what's grate is we can download that same APP on ourphones and monitor kind of what's going on a and we're big on monitoring ifthey've got a phone, but we used to have to check it on her phone se to wecheck it on our Tanyeah, so we also...

...have some other like the nest. Camerahas been really helpful: Yeah Yeah the nest camera so second best babysitterfirst best Mady, said babysitters. The IPAD second best babysitters the nestcamera well first best is our thirteen year old first best is is, but it's notcolor babysitting when it's your oeas to Ar Thirteen Ya first best. A secondbest is the IPAD. Third best is the nest camera, even when the thirteenyear old is around to make sure they're not just sitting around watchlike aNannycam. It's fnr amazing, and let's talk about this for a moment because Ithink there's been a trend in you know. Recent years to use H, Baby MonitorCameras, Oh yeah, that's that's huge right. Everyone wants to know and makesure the this is kind of helicopter Parentane, but that's okay safety. Wedid it h until the twins threw the monitor away. We had two cameras. Itwas a great set up great system. We had one camera on each twin and when theystarted to learn how to walk and figured out what things were, they werepretty go think they threw on away. It was just gone all of a sudden, but if Icould do it over again or if I were doing it now, I would totally just usean EST camera eccept. Did you hear? But did you read this article? Oh yes, Iren an article La we nest, cameras, there's a trend inpeople's nest, cameras being hacked, and I remember when we went with thebaby, monitor the video baby monitor. I remember my parents, saying hey, becareful. You know that stuff uses wireless frequency that that stuff canbe hacked, and I thought no. No one's going to hack a baby camera but sureenough. The Nest Cammeras are being hacked and it's not because of anysecurity glitch in the WIFI system. People are hacking, people's actualnest accounts so they're getting their user names in their passwords, and thisarticle mentioned this guy who got a phone call from his wife, and itwas saying someone who was talking to their nanny through the nest, cameraand then anhe wouldn't response. So then they started making threats sayingthat they were going to take their kids...

...and they were going to come after 'em,so the guy does REC. Does some research online and and sure enough all over theplace nest cameras are getting hecked 'cause th, the USINGA passwords are tooeasy. So if you're eyeing any sort of online camera or device nest ring makesure you're using him in password is secure. I just set up the two factor:Authentication on Ouro ony time. We long and it's goint also send us a textcode. So that's one extra level of of protection. There yeahause that'sreally freaky, and then we have the ring door bell. Can they hack the ring?Doorbell I mean if your password loves dry enough, they can hack everything Idon remember when my email got hacked not really so we were living. It was acouple of years after we were married and we were living in Scottsdelle andsomeone sent out emails eersaying that I was traveling onvacation somewhere in Africa, and I left my laptop and my bags andeverything in in the car and the taxi, and I can't get it back and you got towire me money quickly. It was pretty I realy Slat, rerty, quick and I toeverybody like. That's, that's not for me. I've Hat Sall the time on facebook,where I'll get a message from someone saying I've been hack, disregard newfriend Reos for Mewell, stop clicking things on face, no, no judgment, but Ido it too. It's like. Oh this bunny rabbit, loks, Babe, Bunny Rabbit lookslike an old ise. I CON FO Master, I'm like! Oh Click. You know twenty five minutes later so we, thething is like they're, going to be they're going to be using screen, it'sup to us to teach them appropriate behavior. So they know what to post andwhat not to Pasirt what ciberabullying is and why you shouldn't do it, buteven a lot of adults don't even practise that there's so much ciberbowling that goes on and trolling on fa all the time. All the time yeah did yousee? Um President Obama, previous PresidentObama was M, he gave I talk and he was saying you know basically like thistrolling on twitterhe's like this isn't...

...helping. This is is method. This is not.You know, acaalyst for Change, yeah and criticize e whih Yeath is iitu w. Whenit comes to politics right. I know people I'm not going to mention anyoneby name, especially if they're close relatives but they'll get ontopoliticians, facebook posts and they'll liketroua heee like Oh. I can't believeyou're doing this. I'm like mention name back off. It's it's let people letpeople be and trolling is it's a form, in my opinion, maybe anunpopularopinion, but it's a form of ciberable. I just feel like you shouldnever put anything online, that you wouldn't stay to someone's face yeah orany something that could be considered negative and we talk about this a lot.We've got a commenting rule on instagram. If ever we're going tocomment on something on Instan grammer facebook, if it's obviously a joke, buteven if it could be seen as at all negative, we delete it. We Dont Post'cause, sometimes I'll e like Oh. This is so funny it's kind of sarcastic andI could see them interpreting it negatively alon they're not going topost itigue yeah. I don't want to be that, and I want to teach our kids thattoo, as like it or not, they're growing up with social media, and if we don'tteach them how to do that. Who who will no one will right? Okay, I have a game.I'm excited about this o idea, um. So here's what I'm going to do, I'm goingto wait before we play the git. Yes, one more thing that we need to talkabout. Is that all what we got for technology di, I think so to getcovered one more thing: Broken Screens, Oh man! Another reasonwhy I'm not going to buy my child an iphone e brand nerowing Max Eleven andPhromac they break their screens and we've told our kids that if they breaka screen and they want a newscreen they've got to pay for it themselves.So we did that our oldest broke a screen. She says it wasn't her fault.Well, then, sesures had foulet out of her pocket and someone stepped on it.Bat that is not her Fallo that someones stepped on end, but you got to protectthis device treated with a little more respect than letting it fall ont. IOENIV to replace the screenas like...

...seventy five eighty bucks, but she shedid it, how she paid for it and a month or two later brokeen screen again. I'mthinking why we learn ell next to the seat and got wedged, and then she movedher sea cracked it why I've I've never broken a screen on my phone knock onwood and don't want that to happen, but at the same time like, why would I buynew phones for my kids when they're just going to break the screens, we'vegot some old, I ive hods the same scenario: L E: They keep dropping 'em.They keep meon te Aing Oan Saynwell well, like he'll he'll stand on thecouch holding it over the back of the couch and then he just drops it ontothe Chio andl cracks. So many tin, Hes, that's cause he's thinking if he breaksthe screen. Oh maybe they'll just buy me a new I pad. That's, he be he's notdumber in a bag of Hammer. NO HE'S SMART! All Right! I think we're donewith technology information. I you reay talking about. We could talk aboutsomeong like the Disney circle, stuff and Wy. I E othe time eere doing 'cause,hey start calling me circle. I don't know. That means you need to GoogleDisney circle. Whe shouldle tell me now I'm going to tell a different story.While you look up Disney soaall right, so we use a WIFI network. That's calleda MH network. This brought to you by Erom Wifi, O sjust, just in case anyonefrom Iro out. There is listening when we had to update our wife I network. Afew years ago. I was looking into the Google network system, but it wasn'tready to be released. Yet Ero was a competitor e Ero and they set up areally cool Mesh network system that allows you to turn on and offindividual devices at certain times of day. So I set a bedtime routine for ourkids, so our kids can't get Wifi after nine o'clock at me, for I can pausetheir wife. I, in the middle of the day, you've seen those means on the Internet.Where says hey, if you want today's wife, I pass word. You gotta take apicture of something that has today's date on it with a clean kitchen andyour clean bedroom and text it to mom she'll, give you the wife I password.Something like my question is: How do they text if they don't have the WifeiBasor? They have to get the wife Ha ass...

...or they've bought service for theirkids, that' souning tax yea. You don't need ilstop doing that parents we don'twant to have to Osh ar the worstor. The word a S. I looked up Disney circle.It's like parental controls on the Internet, Ri Yeah, it's it's parentalcontrols, but it's a little bit more convenient than the work arounds. Theweaves I thin aautof ane thing, houldn't youhave just said its PRENELWat. If I was wrong, Oh you weren't sure I will el I kid I I thought I knewwhat it was but whatif. I was way opeuntil conteral Yeah Lak, like shesaid, parental controls. So I know a lot of people do like. I rememberNetnanni from forever ago, O where you can just you know, control what yourkids are watching and then there's like thit angel, where you can edit at themovies that are being seen. Well, it's it's great there. There are all ofthese third party resources like Disney Circle, but really what is needed isthe creators of the WIFI systems, IOS Ero. They need to enable more controlswhich they're doing which ero does, which I os does, and it makes it moreconvenient for us as parents yeah all right now. We now can pay your littlegame. That's a good one! Okay, I'm going to give you a list of things thatyour iphone can do, and one of them is not true. Only oneof these your iphone cannot do. I did just get a new IPHONE, so I'm prettysavvy on what it can and Canto Righ we'll see. If pick it out ready. Weshall see first, one create custom vibrations. Yes, second, diagnose yourcar troubles. Potentially, yes with the regt connection, third check thebatteries on your remote mmme, read, Em all and then Oa ok worthset the cursor to hover without selecting texor images, W set thecursor to hover what curseor the that one's gotta be real Oky play yourfavorite show on Your T. v Kay, keep you safe while walking homeyeah...

...s. This is, I thought, the there'seight eight okay SDO not disturb base on location or, if it senses, yourdriving cary, become a level like a level GSAT, the last all of Hem, one ofthose one of those accan. I really I got hung up on the check your remotebatteries, yeah, that's the one I got hungi'm going to say the IPHONE cannotdo that. I mean. Potentially you could have a connection that does that right.If you can have a connection that plugs into your phone, then plugs into yourcar. You can diagnose your car, so why not one that would also it's just hassomeone to come up with that? Is there really that much of a need to checkbatteries re, wait? What Remote Batteries N say: liket V, Remote, okay,'cause! I can check my airpod batteries, so tha coul probably can check your TVout arits on the SA blue too. Maybe it was yours rewarering. If your T vremote is blue tooth, it could probably check your better Kay Kay, let's Rethro,what itlet to Ron again quickly create custom vibrations. O Diagnose cartroubles, check batteries. Ond, a remote set the cursor to hover withoutselecting texure images play your favorite show on Your T. v, keep yousafe, while walking home se do not disturb base on location or, if itsenses your driving, become a level all right. I'm going to go with, and Ithink this is possible through some of the technologies, but youwould have tohave too many third party APS to sit and play your favorite t v.
