Google Voice

Google Voice is a service that gives you a single phone number for all of your phones.  You can select a phone number from Google (hopefully in the same area code as you are), and use this number to take advantage of advanced services such as: Voicemail to email, voicemail transcribing, call conferencing, international calls, blocking and screening.  Never miss a call again and my favorite use is that I never have to give someone my actual cell number again!

Where is Radio going next?

On December 24th 1906, the world heard its first extended voice radio broadcast.  It was from Massachusetts and the broadcast was received by “sparks”, otherwise known as the communications officers on merchant ships in the Atlantic.  Since then it seems that radio has made a few technology advances in how we receive their product but since the onset of FM has been stuck in a technology black hole and refuses to accept that the world around them is changing.  Technology is changing and the method to deliver their broadcasts is going to change.  I will admit that the radio industry has made a few attempts to leap forward with the times but have been run over with a truck much like Frogger.  These are my views on some of the mistakes that have been made and where radio needs to advance too.
