Pocket Talk

Read text messages in Morse code or aloud

You're driving down the highway when a text message comes in. Your phone's in your pocket, so what do you do? Risk your life as well as the lives of the others around you as you fish around in your pocket, or read the message with your thigh as your phone vibrates the contents of the message in International Morse Code? Be sure to turn vibration on though, as the default setting just reads texts out loud.
