Reviving Radio

With all of our mp3 players, the internet, and cable tv, it would almost seem that radio would be a dying breed. Radio does have one place where it still reigns pretty highly… the car (at least for me). There is a great new service online that allow you to bookmark songs you hear on the radio just by using your mobile phone. Hear a great song but won’t (can’t) remember the name? Call an 800 number that recognizes your number, then it enter the station number. It will email you the song you were listening to at that exact moment, and it’s free! Head on over to Yes.com to see what I’m talking about. You can even use the website to see what stations across the nation are playing, and what they’ve played in the last 24 hours, and when they played them .

Say what you will about Grand Theft Auto. This is… happy. It’s if you were to do the opposite of what you desired to do in Grand Theft Auto. This puts a smile on my face.

Voicemail Efficiently

I remember reading some where that voicemail can be one of the worst ways to communicate. So here are some good tips for voicemail.

  1. When leaving your number, DO IT FIRST! That way, the person on the receiving end doesn’t have to wait through the whole message to get it.
  2. Be brief. (Just like that)
  3. Be concise. If you are thinking about meeting up around 8 PM at Gameworks say that. Don’t just say, “Maybe we can meet up later”.

Honestly I think the best thing to do is just call the person back. Any other thoughts on voicemail?
