      There is a cheaper solution. Give your kids a regular cell phone or no cell phone. I’d like to see what their sales projections are. lol

      @Paul – OR, give them a BlackBerry so you can monitor their every move.

      @Paul – Don’t knock it man! This is some pretty robust software. I just downloaded it for my phone and it seems pretty sweet. Installation was easy once I finally found the instructions (there is an “instructions” link next to their “download” link. Other than somewhat hidden/obscure installation instructions the actual installation/setup was quick and easy.

      My only child is a toddler and so I’ve put this on my own phone. I have worried about losing all my data or having my phone stolen… won’t have to worry any longer though. This Net Nanny app allows me to locate my lost/stolen phone, backup it’s contents, and wipe it if necessary. I’m still playing with it so I haven’t tried all that out but I’m guessing it’s all got to work like they say it does.

      Of course I won’t use any of the “big brother” tech, like the features that allow me to spy on… myself?… but I still think it’s cool it’s there. Heck, as nosy as it might be, parents should be able to communicate boundaries with their children and then enforce it if necessary. As harmless as most people think PRON is I really don’t buy it. It killed my friends marriage and I’m sure it would hurt mine if I was into it.

      I’m with you Paul. They won’t even recoup the cost of making the advert for this. Business 101, know your market. Surprised to even see this mentioned. Basically a useless spy app wrapped in a pretty bow. You can get the individual functionality you want cheaper.

      And with BB dying, and iPhone and Android offering parental control software on their phones, this doesn’t matter. Further littleye has a parental control app as well. Next!
