Software to let parents control mobile phone downloads

A Scots firm has launched a piece of software which allows parents to control what their kids download onto their phones. Again, the hook for the story is that the reason kids hit their headteachers is because of the mobile phone. I doubt the software has recognition for stupidity. Now that would be clever...

It is good that parents would want to show interest in what their children are doing with their phones/ computers etc. However isn't it such a pity that it's always the negative stuff that hits the news? One of my Primary 7 pupils used his phone in a really useful/ educational way recently -http://loirston.edublogs.org/2007/02/05/our-science-experiment/
Yet- Will the negative press prohibit this kind of activity and lead to a ban?
