If you've got some serious alcohol problems, it might not be a bad idea to have someone other than your own drunk self keeping tabs on that liver of yours. That's the idea behind a new Korean technology that monitors your Glutamine Oxaloacetic Transaminase (GOT) and Glutamine Pyruvic Transaminase (GPT) and gives doctors a call when you're in trouble.

This is all well and good, but can it be adapted to automatically drunk text ex-girlfriends? Like if your BAC hits .10 you can have your phone send out booty calls to all your exes, like you would do anyways, but you'll be sure that the spelling and coherence of the messages will be up to snuff. Now that's making technology work for you.
