The Week contest: Drunk shop
Last week's question: A British tech firm has designed a smartphone app that stops users from making drunken online purchases by freezing their credit cards for 12 hours when their blood-alcohol level exceeds a certain limit. If a U.S. tech giant were to launch a similar app that restrains drunken behavior, what name could it give it?
