Blown To Bits

Digital Deception of the Day

Definitely Slydial. It’s a free service that enables you to leave a message on the other party’s voicemail directly, with no possibility you’ll get an actual human being instead. The site shows a bunch of uses for this, for example

You go to a week long convention for work in Las Vegas and blow $5,000 the first night at the roulette table. You need to call your wife and tell her why she should hold off on making the monthly mortgage payment. Her voicemail will be much more understanding then she will.

You are working on a dozen different projects and have as many calls to return. Instead of being stuck on the phone with just one, leave each a voicemail with an update and you may just have enough time to enjoy Happy Hour.

Is this a great country, or what?
