ICE: In Case of Emergency
It’s gotten a lot of attention recently in the news…
It’s even appeared in Snopes (…and has been authenticated as “TRUE”).
What it comes down to is this: programming your emergency contact numbers under the name “ICE” into your cell phone is the smart thing to do!
If you haven’t done so already… you might want to do this right away.
- It would make it easier for others to contact your loved ones, should you become involved in an accident with your cell phone on your person.
- It could increase the chances of your cellphone being returned to you if you should lose it.
Check out this video explaining ICE:
I got my first computer in 1986 and immediately started writing, saving documents, and organizing my entire life on it. Thus began my love affair with gadgets and all things tech. I built my first website in 1998 in old-school HTML code — before websites were "a thing". Blogs weren't invented yet. It was the same year that Google was born. My husband and I created TheFunTimesGuide.com in 2004 — before YouTube, Twitter, Reddit, and Mashable were launched. That was the year Facebook started and 'blog' was the Word of the Year according Merriam-Webster. Ever since then, anytime a new electronic gadget hits the market… I have to have it. (My husband's impulsive nature to try out every new tech gadget invented is even worse than mine!) When I'm not trying out fun new tech gadgets, you'll find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
