Thought of the Day #244 - Google Phone

I'm a Google lover. Love Picasa. Love Google Analytics. Love sooo many
things, really. They rarely disappoint. Recently, I signed up for Google
phone. While I haven't publicized my number yet, I have been playing
around with the features. The most obvious benefit is the ability to
have one number that rolls to several numbers in the order you specify.
The other bonus is the ability to "send to voicemail" when a call comes
in...then, when the caller is in voicemail, you get to eavesdrop, and
accept the call during the message. Kind of like the good ol' answering
machine, but you could be *anywhere*.
Oh, another benefit...the ability to shop for phone numbers in any area
code. I selected a 424 area code 'cuz I searched on word match in order
to pick a number. (Yup, another built in feature to Google phone set
Over the next few weeks, I'm sure I'll fine even more benefits...if I
find something amazing, I'll blog about it.
