A new generation of mobile phones being developed by British Telecommunications Plc was seen in a totally different way by two of the UK’s serious national newspapers. The Times led off with the fact that they could automatically alert a hospital if the owner’s heart rate reaches dangerous levels while the Telegraph was more interested with the fact that as they give the caller’s location, wives would be able to track down cheating husbands. Possibly the two approaches may eventually come together and any husband who suffered a heart attack during the rigors of an adulterous relationship would find an ambulance and an angry wife converging upon him simultaneously.
