Download the Bad Decision Blocker


Users of Apple's iPhone know of the phone's amazing capabilities -- and thanks to the never-ending stream of commercials, non-users have an idea of what it can do, too. (I've documented my undying love for my iPhone here.)

One application those commercials won't tell you about? The Bad Decision Blocker.

Everyone's been there: out late, one Sweet Tea vodka too many and before you know it, you're calling your gym crush or ex-girlfriend at 2 a.m.

The recently released Bad Decision Blocker saves you from your post-party drunk-dialing shame by allowing you to block yourself from calling or texting selected contacts for a pre-determined period of time.

Gmail offers its users a similar function called Mail Goggles. Before you send a late-night e-mail, you must answer a few math problems correctly.

Who needs self-control when 21st-century technology does it for you?

Not being stupid, nor a drunk, I have no need of a "bad decision blocker."

Maybe you could have used one before you left your smarmy comment.

Anonymous- When you read "paid to party", what do you think you're going to be reading- logic and reason??

So, what's to stop someone from just calling the number? Or are people too lazy to just memorize seven digits anymore?

When I crawl out of bed each morning it is a bad decision. Will the iPhone smack my ass back into bed ?
