Re: loud talkers rejoice!
@pcharles09 I give them credit for learning from embedded vehicle nav systems and making the effort. How many apps make the effort to take that responsibility? Whatsapp? Skype? that's why I think its important that something like this be a part of the phone's core OS capability.

Re: loud talkers rejoice!
@MordyK,

You're right. Have you ever used the Waze app? It uses the motion sensors to detect if someone's thying to navigate while driving. I mean it simply asks if you're the passenger or not, so there's still an out. But it's still progressive.

Re: loud talkers rejoice!
The same can be said for automaticaly limiting a phone while driving to a pre-set profile of behaviors complying with local safety laws. The onboard navigation systems do it and nobody blinks because its part of the vehicle, but theoretically the same could be true for a phone.

I know there's a complex issue of figuring out if the phone is the driver's or the passengers, but there's plenty of ways to deduce it depending on the approach.

@danielcawrey,

They're making pretty good progress in New York. Even in some stations where it's not advertised, the service is decent. I'm pretty sure within the next few years, there'll be at least Wifi in all stations.

@MordyK,

It's a tough topic of conversation but should be discussed. Maybe eductaion is the simple solution.

If this Chicago effort follows the NYC one in terms of time frame, you should be enjoying subway wireless signal sometime by 2030 or so. :)

Re: loud talkers rejoice!
This is pretty nifty. For the most part, a lot of underground transit is still without good connectivity. 

But hey, it is now 2015. I'm still waiting for the day I can get a connection from practically anywhere. I think the time is coming.

Having Common Sense is a sensible attribute to have--but on the other hand we can't necessarily expect innovation to follow a "cookbook" approach--although some of the organizations striving for standards are certainly trying.   The key is to insure that it is managed and maximzied.   That's the only hope we can aspire to.

Re: loud talkers rejoice!
but if instead of just having a sign stating "keep quiet" voice was disabled on the network and phone sound volumes were automatically lowered in these locations, wouldn't that be something acceptable? It's not censoring any more than the sign is if it were standard practice in a given location. If you think of it, how's it different than the taboo of putting camera's in a bathroom for surveillance?

One of the legacies of Small Cell's history as a residential femto is that the HomeZone spec enabling customing a phone's behavior based on presence is already available.

I know this can be controversial, but isnt it worth having a public conversation? Isn't this a better approach than jammmers?

Re: loud talkers rejoice!
@MordyK,

I think there is a social etiquette in certain places that says "No phones here". People are just rude & ignore it. I mean, is your recap of last night's game so important that you have to do it next to someone studying, etc.

No but that's what comes with mobility & freedom.
