We've gotta hand it to a company that dares to use not just the ubiquitous lowercase "i" in their name, but the ever irritating "4" and the consistently embittering "U" as well. Still, despite the goofy name, iMind4U looks to be a fairly useful bit of software, providing you have an extra cellphone to spare. The software, which costs £39.48 (about $75 US), will turn any MMS-capable phone into a home monitoring system, letting you grab pictures or video from its camera from any other phone able to receive MMS messages. It can even be set to detect movement and automatically send back a picture, and you can obviously control who has access to the system. Sure, there may be more practical solutions, but who are we to get hung up on practicality?
