No Ma'am, that really is a phone in my pocket.

"A new Apple patent application, entitled "Seamlessly Embedded Heart Rate Monitor," was revealed by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office this week. It describes a hidden, built-in iPhone sensor that would detect a user's heartbeat when the phone is picked up. That biometric data can be used to identify an individual."

"The application also references another patent from Apple, revealed in January, that would sense a user's mood and choose media based on their emotional state. That application described software that could select music in response to a user's mood, through a system that would determine whether they are happy, sad, angry, or something else." -

So Apple has a patent on heart-rate reading tech for their iphones. Now I wont bother with all rational thoughts on this because frankly, that?s not what I want to do at the end of a long hard day.

Instead, I want to focus on the lawls. Given the techs use of choosing music and media based on reading heart rate information, what funny or awkward situations can you think of that may result.

For instance, looking up from a cup of coffee, seeing a very attractive woman and having your new application start playing "Brickhouse" by The Commodores loud enough for everyone involved to hear it.

But you could always tell whether those 'ladies' on those particular 'call-lines' are really faking it!

What? No, I never call them!

the only fancy thing I did was load The Three Stooges theme song (three blind mice)as her ringer. It wasn't the beep, beep version but the full orchastra, the one you hear on the old shorts.

Was hard to find.

never changed my phone ring. My wife's ringer was a special present as the Stooges are a big favorite of hers. When we were dating, we went to a Stooges marathon at a local drive-in. Guess that kind of dates me, doesn't it?
