About OlderSibling:

When you sign up to OlderSibling, you can enter the ID of your Bluetooth® chip from your phone (which OlderSibling can automatically find for you). If you then signup your home computer to be a locator, you can go to OlderSibling’s website and see the times when you were at home. This may not be so interesting to you. But you may want to know what time your teenage daughter got home last night, or when your spouse left for work. You can find this out at any time by going to the website.

When our software runs on your computer, it is a compact program that runs unnoticeably in the background without effecting the performance of your machine. It also doesn’t collect any information other than what you have specified on our website. And because our software runs on your computer, you don’t need a high end phone or GPS or any apps.

OlderSibling can track the Bluetooth® chip in your phone or any other device. (While cell phones are the most ubiquitous examples of devices that are enabled with Bluetooth, their are many other examples.)

    ------------------

    What do you think the site is about? I think this site is exactly what it says, it’s a way of tracking someone utilizing their Bluetooth device, such as their cell phone, via a website application downloaded to their personal computer.

    Is this a service you think you would find useful? Why or why not? I think that it might be something useful for parents who are wanting to keep track of their children. However, my only concern is that in order to track an adult, you would have to gain their permission before doing so. It seems like it might be easy to set up a tracking on a boyfriend or girlfriend, or even spouse without their knowledge, simply by using their cell phone. This, in my opinion, might be a violation of their privacy.

    Sign up for OlderSibling. Did you understand the signup process? I signed up using an account. The process was self explanatory, however, I never found an explanation as why I would need to upload a picture.

    Do you have any particular likes, dislikes, or concerns about our site? The colors and overall appearance of the website are fine. It’s eye catching and attractive. It is user friendly. I would, however, like to see tabs in a menu on the main web page such as Contact, and FAQ. As well, there is plenty of space at the bottom of the main web page for a better explanation of an example of why would might need this service.

    Do you have any suggestions or recommendations? On the “Learn More” page, I am finding some of the wording redundant in the explanation. I think that the wording could be put in more basic terms of understanding. I do like how the tabs are displayed on the left hand side and feel that each tab is clear and concise in further understanding.

    Will you return to OlderSibling? Probably not. I do not have any children at home and would definitely NOT use this service to track a spouse. I might recommend the use of this site to other parents and in social networking sites, such as Cafemom.

    ------------------

    What do you think the site is about?
    I think its to help folks stay connected in a more intimate way. By using the bluetooth there is less typing to be done and that is always a good thing.

    •Is this a service you think you would find useful? Why or why not?
    I think that everyone is always looking for an easier way to communicate while you are doing three things at once. This one is it.

    Did you understand the signup process?
    Yes. The fact that you use facebook makes it a very fast sign in process. Since you are dealing with clients that are going to be in a hurry this is a brilliant way to go!

    •Do you have any particular likes, dislikes, or concerns about our site?
    I like that the site is easy to navigate. I think its best not to add too much stuff and make it complicated. There are enough sites with so much in it that you feel like giving up.

    •Do you have any suggestions or recommendations?

    Again, I like the fact that is simple, so I would not add too much on it.

    Maybe having the ability to include a picture if you wish, of where you are at the moment would be fun. I also recommend that you let the client know that this would be only for immediate friends and family.
    Facebook has a great PR problem because anyone can access your information. Maybe you can make it harder for anyone from the outside to access.

    •Will you return to OlderSibling?
    Yes. Its a fun way to keep in touch without a lot of work.

    • Is this a service you think you would find useful? Why or why not?
    The site allows you to track your friends and family members by his/her cell phone just by using the computer. This site allows you to locate your friends/family quickly, and accurately. Instead of having someone say they are someone else and by typing a message like “I am at home”, you will be able to “really” tell where they are. I think this service can be very useful. I can think of various ways to use this service, including in the workplace. An employee will not be able to call in sick and say they are home in bed, but actually someone else, you will be able to tell exactly where they are.
    Sign up for Older Sibling. Did you understand the signup process?
    I signed up on the site, and I thought the process was very instructional, along with the tutorial. I think this would be a great asset.

    • Do you have any particular likes, dislikes, or concerns about our site?
    I like everything about the software, especially in my workplace, there are times when you have to track employees but you are not sure if they are really sick, or really where they say they are.

    • Do you have any suggestions or recommendations?
    My suggestions would to not make the user able to have control over the software. The control should be on the administrator. In this case, the parents when relating to kids, or the manager when relating to employees.

    • Will you return to Older Sibling?
    I will definitely return to the website.
