The first fine by using an Apple Watch while driving went to a man who is from Quebec, Canada. He is the first person encountered such kind of embarrassing experience.
His is name is called Jeffrey Macesin. He was fined with a $120 penalty and 4 scores on his license after the police detected he used the Watch device while driving.
According to Section 439.1 of the Quebec Highway Safety Code the Pincourt resident got fined as no one can use a handheld device, including a telephone function while driving a road vehicle.
Macesin was using the watch to change the music tracks on his iPhone when he pulled over which was against the ruling based on the Section 439.1.
Macesin told CTV Montreal that he had the Watch charged in the bad but the auxiliary cable was plugged in the radio which controls his phone to play music. So he changed songs with hands while driving on the road.
Macesin was going to a city called Vaudreuil when a police car coming after him and the police did not have the lights on. Then the police turned on the lights and Macasin wondered the police wanted him to pull over.
He continued, ” The watch is not so much handheld, it is on my wrist. This is a controversial problem. Isn’t it? I think this problem need to be discussed”.
It is illegal to use a smartwatch while driving on British Roads according to the Department of Transport’s regulations state that it is not permitted to view a screen when driving a motor vechicle.
Apple has become to the world‘s most powerful tech company attributes to the great success of the iPhone. Maybe you ever image what iPhone could have looked like if iPhone was launched during the company’s early development.
The enterprising designer Pierre Cerveau has tried to answer this question by giving us the concept of‘Macintosh Phone‘, the concept was borrowed from a handset called the Macintosh 512k of 1984.
Here are the details what iPhone might have looked like in 1984.
The handset includes a hybrid rotary or click wheel, the users can dial numbers or scroll through the menu on the small CRT display. It was close to the devices made during that time.
It referred to the age-old Macintosh as the phone has 512 of memory, but you may not be able to use much with the phone except making calls due to the lack of mobile internet and touchscreens in the old days.
The phone was also imitated to make a Mac in the rear of it, it was also made the fan vents for cooling, but there was only one port made due to limitation of technology.
Even the Macintosh Phone’s specs becomes useless today, but they could be the important details for us to sought after the items existed if Apple had launched it back in 1984.
