All posts for the month March, 2011

Okay so it’s been well over a year. That little widget over there for Google Voice has been rendered largely unimportant by the fact that pretty much any mobile browser recognizes a phone number as being a phone number, and will create a link from it and automatically ask you if you want to dial it just by touching it. Want to call that great big movie theater in Turkey Creek? Here ya go: 865-671-3311. I guess if anything the widget is still kind of neat in that it lets you have people call you without ever publishing your number. Well, oh, and also I could answer the call on my computer, or iPad, or wherever else I told Google Voice to go find me. Okay, maybe it’s still sort of cool.
