Big brother is actually big parent

I can't tell you how many times I've had to reset something on my phone because my son has hit the wrong button while playing with it. So, I guess it is about time that we have some better lock-down methods for our phones and tablets if we are handing them off to our children. The patent that Microsoft has recently filed sounds promising.

In addition to locking down devices, I really like the idea of being able to monitor data and phone use better. What can I say? I'm a tyrant at heart.

Now, if we could only get some better protection for the outside of our devices. A recent study has just found that more than 50 percent of American parents have had their mobile phones, laptops, tablets and other devices damaged by their children. Yikes.
