Ben is a lifelong Nintendo fan who likes to build websites, and make video games. He buys way too much Lego.
I got an email from Georgiana today telling me about a very good idea thought up by a Cambridge based paramedic.
Bob Brotchie, a clinical team leader for the East Anglian Ambulance NHS Trust, hatched the plan last year after struggling to get contact details from shocked or injured patients.
By entering the acronym ICE â€“ for In Case of Emergency â€“ into the mobileâ€™s phone book, users can log the name and number of someone who should be contacted in an emergency.
This is such a simple idea and is so easy to implement you would be stupid not to take two minutes to add an entry to your mobile. As soon as I publish this I will be adding mine.
