Espen Horne, a filmmaker in Norway, had an eerie experience with an iPhone and a fire alarm, resulting in one of those Reese’s peanut butter moments.
The next logical step: he made a three-minute clip asking Steve Jobs to integrate a fire alarm sensor on the iPhone.
The iPhone wouldn’t substitute the regular fire alarm but augment it, setting off the iPhone alarm too, “because sometimes people don’t wake up when the alarm is in another room.”
Far fetched? Maybe, but the point Horne makes about how iPhone owners are rarely far from their devices is a good one.
Perhaps Jobs is the wrong person to ask: could there be an app for it?
