This (among other reasons) is why I have Google Now set up to respond to "OK Google, call 911" even with the screen off and locked. Even if my phone is in another room, I'll probably be able to get it to summon help.

Story
Tagline
ZDNet blogger loving mobile tech and gadgets of all types.
Introduction
I have been using mobile devices since they weighed 30 pounds, and have been sharing my insights on mobile technology for almost that long. Prior to joining ZDNet, I was the Founding Editor of jkOnTheRun, a CNET Top 100 Tech Blog that was acquired by GigaOM in 2008 and is now part of that prestigious tech network. My writing has appeared in many print publications: Smartphone and Pocket PC Magazine, Information Week and Laptop Magazine to name a few. My coverage of the mobile technology sector has regularly appeared in the New York Times, Salon.com and CNN/ Fortune online. Not just a writer, I have filmed many video reviews and how-tos that have garnered well over a million viewers. I have appeared on local news segments and been interviewed by the Associated Press on mobile technology topics. Additionally, I have been podcasting about mobile technology for years.
