Jott - Never again forget that great idea you had while driving

Have you ever been driving down the road and mentally wrote the best opening paragraph for a dynamite story? Pulling over to the side of the road, only to discover you not only have no paper, you don't have even a napkin to write on. You keep thinking of the idea over and over in your head trying to remember it until you get to someplace to write it down. I've NEVER gotten it written down. Life always invades my space and "whoosh" - great idea GONE!

NOW.... ta-da! There is an answer. Your chance to write the next Great American Novel while driving a car is just around the corner.

Jott - that's the name of the company that will allow you to leave yourself a voice mail that gets transcribed into an email and sent to you (or texted). It's a voice transcription service.

You can send a message to yourself, to another, or to a group. You can set a time to send yourself a reminder.

This is a very cool service that has lots of possibilities. Right now it is a free service. Go check out their site. Let me know how you like it. Leave comments.

Right now, I am looking forward to sending myself messages about the ideas I have for my blog. You can't BELIEVE the great entries I have forgotten to write.

This is awesome! I have a different service I use for this, where I can call and leave myself a message, which I later pick up as a digital sound file (also can record phone interviews with it) but it costs $5 a month and 2o cents a min. I didn't see anyplace on that site where I could find out the cost without signing up... would like to compare!
