There are a lot of questions that need to be answered in front of the court about cell phones before they can make legislation of whether or not to allow warrantless search. A question that comes up a lot is how can the lower courts compare searching a cell phone to searching a pack of cigarettes? This is because cell phones store data, and data contains personal information, when a box of tobacco doesn’t. When they do overcome this dilemma the next question will be: how far should the searching extended, text messages, call logs, pictures, GPS history, file sharing programs,

In the article, “OMG Teens and Their Phones” by Bob Ross, he discusses a survey that shows on average everyday teens send about one text message every five minutes. Throughout this article Ross discusses the question of whether the use of technology is being abused by kids today and the answer is yes, but only if the parents let it happen. Parents cannot be ignorant about what their child is using technology for, they need to understand the technology their child is using and they also need to create rules about the use of technology so teens do not abuse their power of it. Ross explains how it is important for parents to set guidelines and rules that are reasonable for themselves and their child’s needs so they are more willing to follow them. To make sure that teens are not abusing their technology it is important for parents to encourage technology free time. It is important for a child to learn when the appropriate time is to use technology and when they should not, for example when they are in class or when they are doing homework.

On the phone bill a parent can see what times their child is texting and the other person who they are texting. If a parent sees that their child is not following their guidelines then they can always disable their phone during a certain

Even if a parent lets their child know they are being monitored, children will often take this as a message that they cannot be trusted.

Susan Dominus compared her childhood with the childhood of her children. Of Dominus’ belief that the relationship between parents and children have always been the same, smartphones are just the newest object onto which people displace their parental guilt.

I would like to tell you a little bit more about the way Kidslox works. Our app was created to block third party apps, but not the in-built phone functions like calls, text messages, etc. So, if you switch the app to the Lock Down mode at night, the in-built functions of the phone will be available, but the access to the third party apps will be restricted.
In today’s society, people view the world through the very handheld electronic devices in their pockets, rather than going outside and experiencing life for themselves. They use their phones to communicate, share their everyday experiences, connect with their family, friends and loved ones. whether it may be from the other side of the world, or just the room. Cell phones have revolutionized the way humans communicate and socialize, ever since the first cell phone to hit the market in 1973 by John F. Mitchell. As much as cell phones are helpful and convenient, they have changed the world dramatically. This seem like an extreme claim to make, but evidence shows that cell phones have made the world a little more difficult. They have caused many problems such as fatal car accidents due to distracted drivers on the road, as well as sexting and revenge porn, which leads to a form of cyberbullying.

Additionally, with the recent trend of wireless connections there has been a profound expansion in private Internet usage. The diverse means by which adolescents are using the Internet has become coupled with inherent risks of unsupervised and uneducated use.
The moral agents in this situation are the children, the parents and the application developer.
