Kids Shouldn't Use Mobile Phones, But Here Are A Bunch Of Cartoons For Them

from the disconnect dept

It appears that not everyone has gotten the message. While some UK researchers tried to persuade people that children shouldn’t be using mobile phones, a company didn’t wait very long at all before announcing that they’ve come up with a series of animated videos for mobile phones. You just know these guys had their press release lined up two weeks ago and thought “oh crap, we gotta wait,” when they saw that warning about kids. It was probably too late to change the marketing material to make it into “animated shorts… for adults,” so this is what we get. Perhaps they should just sell ferrite beads with the service. Of course, it might not matter at all since a variety of new studies say that kids don’t care about advanced features on mobile phones. They just want to be able to talk and text without service outages and at a reasonable price.
