Plagued by the fact that I need to not only fish my cell phone out of my purse when it rings--a major feat, I also have to simultaneously find my glasses if I expect to do anything but answer. Since I don't need glasses to drive, this is a major hassle.
I see where Cingular Wireless is adding "push-to-talk" features so that it has walkie-talkie capabilities. Not only am I certifiably blind when trying to read anything close, I find it difficult to remember when to push the button to talk, and when to not push so I can listen--a frustrating experience for me and the poor person on the other end.
The push-to-talk service, powered by technology from Kodiak Networks, adds several bells and whistles including the ability to start a group conversation. Great, now a whole group of people would know I'm fumbling.
Let me go on record asking for a "push-to-see" feature for those of us over 40 who are tired of squinting, and with arms not long enough to read the displays on our phones. It could be something as simple as pushing one (large) button for a zoom-in capability.
You read it here first--let's see if anyone hears.
