Thought for Today (1/4/2017)

A family who lost their five year old child when their car was rear-ended by an inattentive driver is suing Apple because the person causing the accident was face timing when the accident happened.

This is a sad statement on our society!  When we sue the manufacturer of an inanimate object for the actions of a human.

Did the Apple phone start the car?

Did the Apple phone put the driver into the driver’s seat?

Did the Apple phone physically force the driver to take his eyes off the road?

If you cannot answer “YES” to any of these questions the phone is not responsible for the accident.  The driver chose to leave his phone on while driving.  The driver chose to continue driving once he started using face time.  The driver alone is responsible for his actions.

I don’t own an Apple phone for my own reason, and have no interest in the company, but I do know an inanimate object is not responsible for a human’s actions.
