Tag: Google Voice
Google Voice recently added a feature that really appeals to me. There are times where I work in buildings where I have no service on my cell phone. Google Voice has helped this situation by allowing me to forward my Google Voice number to wherever I am. The problem is, not everyone has my Google Voice number, and even if they did, they'd still see my cell number whenever I call them. If someone calls my cell phone and leaves a message when its out of service, I don't get the message until I'm on the road, which is usually too late.
The new feature Google Voice has added is allowing me to using Google Voice for voicemail on my cellphone. It doesn't work with all cell providers but they hit the major ones including US Cellular (who I use) which usually is left by the wayside. Not only does it consolidate voicemail boxes, it also allows me to forward my cell calls to my Google Voice number which then dials any number I set up. So now I can even receive those calls that I would normally miss and I don't really need to hand out my Google Voice number.
If you're tired of me raving about Google Voice and just want to try it, I have three invites to hand out. Leave a comment or dm me on twitter with your email address and I'll hook you up! (If you leave a comment, I'll already have your email so you don't need to include it in your comment)
Also, sorry for the lack of posts lately. We've been very busy the past few months. I'll be posting some gaming stuff soon (hopefully).
All the Google Voice app nonsense in the past few weeks has really turned me off of Apple. I had started to warm up to them considering they have had some great products recently and their OS is built with Unix at its core. While I would never purchase an Apple product, I welcomed their competition to drive innovative products. I could rant on about the Google Voice fiasco but I feel like Mr. Arrington does a pretty good job of summing it up while explaining why he quit the iPhone.
Anyway, while the Google Voice thing pissed me off, I'm outraged that Apple is now censoring dictionaries. There are so many things wrong with that. So without further ado, I'd like to simultaneously introduce a new feature on my blog as well as...
Welcome Apple to my Shit List.
What's that, Apple? Is that word offensive or inappropriate? Feel free to censor the sh*# out of it.
I've been meaning to make a few other lists as well so stay tuned, there will be more (like my anticipated games, etc).
