Texting while walking made illegal

Texting while walking

A town in New Jersey, USA has recently hit headlines around the world for making texting while walking a crime.

117 tickets were were issued by police in Fort Lee to anyone caught using their phones while walking.

At first, it was widely believed that this new offence was being punished for people walking down the street using their phone. However, Police Chief Thomas Ripoli has set the record straight by informing the world that tickets have only been issued to those texting while walking across a road.

It turns out the reasoning behind this seemingly unusual new legislation is due to the fact that 3 people were killed and 23 hurt in just a 3 month period in this small town of only 35,000 residents.

This is believed to be the first area to introduce such a law, with the police insisting that only if you are caught “jaywalking” (crossing a road without using a pedestrian crossing) and texting you will be booked.

Samsung Galaxy S3 – Top 5 Features

It seems like it’s been coming for a lifetime (and most of us at Proporta have been sitting on the edge of our seats for months now), but the Samsung Galaxy S3 is finally ready to launch. While we get to work on the new Samsung Galaxy S3 cases for you to accessorise with, we run down what some of the key new features are for the brand new S III.

Samsung Galaxy S3 features

1) The Look
Perhaps one of the more obvious features, the Samsung Galaxy S3 has a much curvier design than the S2 and has chosen not to go with a black option, but rather white and blue. Thankfully there are plenty of Samsung Galaxy S3 cases to choose from to brighten it up a bit. It is also slightly heavier and thicker than the older model with 8.66mm thickness and 133g in weight.

2) Display
The screen of the new Samsung Galaxy S3 larger than the S2 at 4.8 inches and will boast an HD Super AMOLED display with 720×1280 resolution.

3) Camera
Sticking with the 8-megapixel camera, the quality of photos on the Galaxy S3 is the same as its predecessor. However, the new model will now feature a 1080p HD video camera.

4) Memory and Storage
A 1.4GHz Exynos quad core processor and 1Gb of RAM in addition to improved battery capacity mean the new Galaxy is certainly a force to be reckoned with in the smartphone world when you look under the bonnet.

5) Voice Control
With Siri taking the Apple world by storm, Samsung had to offer an alternative for what is expected to be the iPhone’s biggest competitor. This comes in the form of S Voice, which is based more on instructing the phone and less on personality.

30Th May is the date that the S3 will be released in the UK. In the meantime, find Proporta’s fantastic new range of Samsung Galaxy S3 cases and pre-order today.
