LucyPhone.com – Never Wait on Hold Again

LucyPhone.com – Never Wait on Hold Again.

I hate waiting on hold, but now I think I’m in love. I used Lucyphone when calling Uhaul & Comcast during my recent move. I will admit Uhaul didn’t take too well to it, but Comcast did. I just used the website or the iPhone app. I entered Comcast & Lucy knew the number already. Uhaul I had to type in their toll free number. Lucyphone called me on the phone number I specified. I was connected to the phone tree which I navigated. When I got to the hold portion of the call I just typed ** & Lucyphone took over. When the human answered Lucyphone called me back. Now yes I could have put it on speaker, but who wants to hold music the entire time you’re doing other stuff?

Graph of classes in slots. I must say with the groups I play with we have plenty of Tanks & Healers but some tanks have to go DPS in Naxx. Although the Gnome Mage always wants to tank :D. I need to joke that I want to heal.  Hey I have Goblin Jumper Cables…… Link

I’m getting sick of the “killer appbuzzwords but they’ve amused me with the “killer app for your appetite” phrase. It’s about Pizza Hut‘s iPhone app. Link

I heard Beyonce’s Single Women song at work last night on the radio. I identified it using Shazam on my iPhone, but it had a link to this video.  It was JUST TOO CUTE!!!

No More Free Jott For You

No More Free Jott For You

Oh, no. Apparently according to TechCrunch, Jott will go totally paid after Feb 2. Now I’ve really enjoyed Jott, but I have been slowly using it less & less since they rolled out thier paid version. Granted I have the iPhone app. But the service is going to paid only because they cannot get enough revenue in advertisements. This probably means I will quit using the service altogether. Unless I go to the Pay As You Go plan.

Yes, I know there is nothing currently on the Jott blog about this but TechCrunch has a current policy to break every press embargo that it recieves and deems newsworthy.

Bubbles, this was written for kids, or so they claim. Just drag the finger across the screen to create bubbles, then tap each  to pop it, the bubbles fall down in the direction you have the phone tilted. Bubbles, very simple, very easy, lots of fun.
