iPhone Sleaze Detector

Intelius, a Washington State information commerce company, is offering a new iphone application. Date Check allows singles to do a quick background check on someone they are considering going out with. Input the person's name or cell phone number to begin. The Net Worth function checks on any monetary and property holdings. Sleaze Detector looks for criminal records such as assault, drug or sex offences, drunk driving and such. It even checks networking sites and reports on job status and education. John Arnold, co-founder and executive vice president of Intelius, says it's like having a private investigator in your pocket. Doesn't sound very romantic to me. http://www.upi.com/Odd_News/2009/09/24/iPhone-app-investigates-dates/UPI-77901253829286/

Cell phones are the work of the devil! And, those poor, lost souls that have become addicted to them will burn in hell if they don't cast down the demon spawn, fall on their knees and return to the path of Ma Bell!

Ah.. coffee's ready. Gotta go.

All the more reason to lie on your facebook profile...

at least what you put on your profile, true or not, is what you want known about you. this ferrets out all your secrets and some of that stuff you don't have a choice to keep off the net. yikes!

I kind of like it.

I can check up on my daughter's dates before they leave the house.

Screw this. You can use it on anybody, which seems like an huge invasion of privacy. I mean, hell, if I was still single I'd want to run background checks on somebody to make sure they were who they said they were, but this can apply to anything; including credit and finance.
