Or, you know, he could provide water to child without promoting his douchey clothesline.

How much does a day's worth of water cost?  $0.10?  $0.05? Less?

WTF Indeed: clothesline.


I didn't think he dry cleaned all of that haute couture.

The site accesses the accelerometer in your phone to determine if you're actually leaving it alone for the whole time, and if you move the phone, it asks you to put it down to continue.

I wonder if it accesses anything else, and this is a neat publicity stunt that will yield some form of personal information that can be used by their marketers or advertisers (or could be sold to another marketer or such).

He'll make up for it by raising prices on some hipster douchebag that is willing to spend $60 dollars for a t-shirt.

I'm in.

Can I get like 2 extra smartphones and look at all three at once and screw 3 kids out of water for a day?
 
2014-02-27 10:31:18 AM
And if you don't, he'll let that child die?  Sort of painted yourself into a corner, there, Georgie Porgie.

In a related story, if you can't go 10 minutes without looking at your phone, you are encouraged to drown yourself.

While I don't disagree with you that this seems a trivial amount, have you actually  seen water sources in 3rd world countries?  They'd probably make you puke.  In that after air,  water is the next most life-sustaining entity in the universe, it doesn't seem quite so trite.

Cheers!

I was going to say "No smart phone. 37 years. 6 bottles per hour times 24 hours in a day times 365 days time 7 years...so 1,944,720 bottles.  I am saving the world by owning a dumb phone! Get on that sh*t, Georgio.

Someone should get Giorgio Armani to do this, too. He has a lot of money.
 
2014-02-27 10:35:38 AM
That's easy!

UNICEF Tap Project + 6 hours of sleep = 2 months of water for a kid.

So I have to give you hardware access? How'bout no.

I don't even own a smart phone. So I get past interest on this one?
PS, I agree that he could have done this by just giving the money and not muttering a word about it. Pretty sure a week's worth of his VIP parties could get water and much more to a starving village.

My phone doesn't have an accelerometer? (unsmart phone, nokia C300)
 
2014-02-27 10:42:24 AM
Cool idea. I go without my iPhone from 5am to about 6pm every workday. I could do some damage to a few thirsty kids.

Good luck beating out my mother, father and stepmother. I can't get them to use their (flip) phones to do anything besides answer a call. Not even a single text.

No, I think most people are aware.  They just figure, if they have to listen to ads from these guys anyway, at least let it do someone some good.

I'm in and I got a little message that said "While people are posting pictures of their food on instagram, you're making a difference." I really thought that said "White people are posting picture of their food." Made me laugh a little too hard to be sitting in the middle of a crowded office.
 
2014-02-27 10:45:16 AM
So does that mean I can put the phone down before I go to bed and just leave the app running. That's 6 guaranteed hours of clean water right there.
 
2014-02-27 10:45:19 AM
And if you can't stay off your phone he will LET THEM DIE!

I'm pretty sure that's not true.  I've been told that having a smart phone is necessary to live in this society and that's why it's ok for poor people to spend money on them.  And the people that told me this were like real authoritative.
 
2014-02-27 10:47:00 AM
It's easy for video gamers who want to actually help someone.

Put the app on the phone, stick it in another room, turn on the computer and play a game for several hours.
 
2014-02-27 10:48:02 AM
Wow, there are apparently more than a few farkers who have been waiting for this thread so they can brag about living under a rock and not owning a smart phone. Sure, people rely on their phones too much, but It's better than hearing some douche being elitist about being anti-elitist. If you really want to deny technology, go back to LAN lines and answering machines.

I'll bet you are doing as much or more than I am to help the world be a better place.  If you are doing anything at all you are doing more than me.  Armani is at least doing something while promoting his stuff.

How about those of us who have a smart phone but leave it sitting on the counter because it gets no signal in the mountains where I live? Given that I work from home months can go by without me using it.
