was contemplating on forking out on a new laptop to call my own (practically all the technology in the house other than my mobile is owned by the husband) but decided to spend a fraction of the cost on this keyboard instead, and take over the husband’s old iPad since he’s neglected it in favour of his iPad mini.


because i was whining about how it’s SOOO difficult for me to blog on the mobile and the iPad without the click-clackety-ness of an actual keyboard, and it’s SOOO troublesome to boot up the desktop and the heavy laptops (omg first world problems or what?!). so with $130 spent on this super sexy slim keyboard, and the sheer convenience of the iPad, PLUS with the nice click-clackety feeling of actual typing, i’ll have less excuses not to blog.

Pardon this post as I’m trying out this wordpress application I just downloaded to my BB. This would be perfect if I need more than 140 characters to say something but can’t be bothered to switch on the darn PC/netbook. Am I connected or whaaaat.

Ok, let’s hope this works.

a while back, my cousin told us how his kids, who are about eight, would sometimes call him up from school. you know, to tell them that they weren’t feeling well, or to make last-minute after-school arrangements, or well, just to ‘report’ about something they deem as important.

to do so, the little fellas (who are twins, by the way) would need to fish out loose change from their pockets to use the school’s public phone. their daddy thought of getting them a handphone but, as i’m sure most parents do, felt that they were too young for such a responsibility.

yet i did wonder too – what if parents need to get in touch with their kids in school, other than having to inconvenience their teacher via the staff room phone?

and then i discovered online of this new mobile service by M1 called KidSAFE, i immediately thought of them!

a quick glance at the features and i knew it was perfect for parents – AND kids. well, at least kids who are just old enough to know how to function a handphone, lah. not, of course, for aniq (who’s all of 3 and more interested in playing with the torchlight function on my handphone) or auni (who’s all of 10 months and more interested in slobbering all over my handphone).

anyway, as i was saying, KidSAFE has all these child-friendly features that i think will most likely appeal to you young-ish parents of even young-ish kids.

first of all, the service uses a stripped-down-to-basics kinda mobile (a Samsung SGH E200, to be precise), so it’s easy to use (read: idiot proof! yes, that includes some of us who may be, ahem, gizmo-phobic), especially since it’s meant for kids who’ve never owned a handphone before.

and – here’s the important part – it’s actually SAFE to use.

let’s see, now…

  • parents can program up to 40 phone numbers that their children can make and receive calls from
    - hey, that’s a whole lotta numbers! but i would think the most essential ones would be, of course, the parents’ numbers, as well as their grandparents, close relatives, or even their neighbours and trusted friends. with these digits pre-programmed in the phone, there’s no worry about getting the numbers right, especially in times of emergency. i mean, there’s plenty enough to remember with all those spelling tests and math homework, isn’t there?
  • parents can choose to be alerted via SMS when the KidSafe SIM card is taken out and used in another mobile phone
    - so no tampering can be done on the phone – you know how sticky those young fingers can get!
  • the KidSAFE program and features can only be changed with a 6-digit parent PIN
    - and that secret PIN number, which only you have access to, will be required to amend the phonebook entries and any KidSAFE functions on the child’s phone. how’s that for All Mighty Powers?
  • there is internet restriction on KidSAFE phones
    - which, i think this is pretty important, as this minimises any chances of exposing your kids to violent and unsavoury content. let’s hope they don’t grow up too fast, shall we? :S
  • you have control over their viewing and downloading of games, music, or videos on the phones
    - so they are less likely to unintentionally access chargeable mobile services and chalk up hefty phone bills! yeah, they can forget about voting for their favourite Singapore Idol on those 1900 numbers. :)
  • you get to monitor the last 10 blocked actions
    - including details of numbers attempting to SMS or call the KidSAFE number, and attempts made to call or SMS unauthorised numbers. which means, your child is safe from being contacted by strangers, and at the same time, you can be assured that they’ll be unable to dial out strange numbers too. hey, you’ll never know.
  • phew! *pant pant*

    so, i guess it is possible after all for parents to have the confidence and peace of mind should they decide to give their kids their own mobile phone, eh?

    and you know, i think it could actually be a good tool for parents to teach responsibility. for faris here, he was afraid that the phone would get stolen when he brings it to school, so his dad reminded him not to show it off to his friends and to make sure that he brought it along with him when he’s out of the classroom. but kids being, well, kids, he did accidentally show it to his friend, then felt bad about it when his dad advised him that it might tempt people to steal it, so he’s been more careful with it since…

    faris and his brother, faiz, can now make calls to their parents and grandparents with ease. no more digging around for coins in their pockets to make calls on a public phone! can use the money to buy extra snacks liao! :D
