iPhone app helps drunks walk the line

Dutch brewer Grolsch has recently launched its very own iPhone app to help drinkers determine just how inebriated they really are

Dutch brewer Grolsch has recently launched its very own iPhone app to help drinkers determine just how inebriated they really are. The just for fun application, dubbed 'Walk the Line', was launched at the North Sea Jazz Festival in the Netherlands.

At the Dutch festival drinkers were challenged to use the new app, which uses the iPhone's built in accelerometer, to walk in a straight line. Those that failed were advised to take some time out and drink some water.

Grolsch detailed that the app was not to be used as an actual alcohol tester, and is purely just for fun.'Walk the Line' is currently not available in the US, we have contacted the applications developer 'Marvellous' to find out why.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
