Well, it should keep people from sharing Aps.

Mustang - Good one!

If obamacare isn't repealed and the American doctor goes the way of the dinosaur... these cell phone apps may need additional functionality. I can see a future cell phone with telescoping antenna for a self-administered colonoscopies.

Um... Um... Um...

Um...

Yeah. Speechless.

cube said...

I didn't know what to make of this one either.

Chuck said...

Mustang, adds a whole new layer to computer viruses

DaBlade, good luck trying to do that yourself

Brooke, um, yeah

Cube, it is weird

Z, stop back by - you haven't seen anything yet.

Hmmm, it could do away with proctologist totally and gynecologist as well.

Chuck said...

Ticker, will they be missed?

MK said...

Indeed Mustang and i have to say i'd having a lot of trouble urinating on my phone and then using it.

I don't know folks, i have this strange feeling that this just won't catch on.

Chuck said...

Mk, use someone else's phone ;)

Always On Watch said...

Definitely, use someone else's phone!

Ticker said...

Well the proctologist certainly will not be missed at least from an experience stand point. I haven't had any experience with a gynecologist other than the one I dated at one time. She was missed for a short time but soon replaced by a college professor. The professor was less inhibited! hahaha.

Chuck said...

AOW, right

Ticker, I don't even want to think about a proctology exam with the phone
