PhoneTag

Mobile phones have come a long way in a short time. Even tasks like checking your voicemail have been greatly improved through visual voicemail technology and so on. These advancements are great, but a lot of people still view voicemail as a necessary evil, so they aren’t exactly thrilled with it. Many of us prefer to receive e-mail messages instead, especially since they’re easier to organize, browse through, etc. With PhoneTag, callers can still leave you voicemail messages, but you’ll be able to receive them as e-mails or even text messages.

Yes, text comes to the rescue once again. PhoneTag handles the text conversion for you whenever you receive a voicemail, and before you know it you’ll be reading the message instead of listening to it. With that said, PhoneTag also sends the audio file just in case you want to hear the message. Your regular voicemail functionality will remain the same, but it will just be enhanced thanks to PhoneTag. I hate playing phone tag in real life, but I like what this service is doing.

    I am using google voice, and it does the same but also has many other features, and for now at least it is free

    I see 4 or more fake/Mis-attributed quotes a day in my twitter stream, most of them from Tweet Robots.. @lockergnome is pretty bad about those…. (wonder who I should blame)

    Best quote I ever heard: “Google is your friend!” – I’ve no clue who said that one, but any of your favorite search engines can bring up original quote, context, and author quickly. You wouldn’t believe the number of fwd’s I’ve had – I used to use http://lmgtfy.com/ on some of the snarkier ones. Then, one day, I passed along one of those errors…and I learned to pause, resist that fwd/BCC until I could look it up.

    I may botch those up from time to time but I make certain quotes from interviewees are correct. ;)
