I really don’t like voice mail. It’s annoying. This recent article in Slate said exactly what i have been saying at parties, over cocktails, when my mom leaves really long messages about Aunt Betty who was married to Uncle Peter and what they did at Saturday Steak dinner night.
Which is why I love Google Voice -basically it gives you one number that connects all your phones and lets you be the boss about who can call which phone when. Again, with Choice! These companies today are giving us users choice – oh my god! Long gone are the days when we gotta take cause that is ATT made us do.
It’s only in the US now and I live in Europe so I can’t access it all the time, but I hear through the grapevine that they are working on this. I normally don’t get up and do a little dance about anything Google does, but this time, I am dancing baby. See me dance.
