Some recommendations...

Here are a few web sites that I use regularly, that you may or may not have heard of.

Remember the Milk

Remember the Milk is great for those of you who like the to-do lists and also like quippy little names for websites.

It is a great organizer and it also coordinates with your Gmail and Google Galendar. There is also an offline feature that comes in handy. I highly recommend this site.

Jott

Jott is awesome. I cannot tell you just how awesome it is. It is a phone service where you can call in and it will transcribe your voice into text, but that isn't even the half of it.

You can also send jotts. I can call and it will send a text message to my wife.

OR... I can call and send a jott to myself. It will send me an e-mail of my words. But before you hang up, it will ask you if you want a reminder. If you say yes, then you can pick the date and time for that reminder. It will then send you a text message at that time. Cool.

Jott also coordinates with services like Google Calendar, Remember the Milk, and Blogger, just to name a few.

Grand Central

Grand Central was purchased by Google last year. I guess they aren't taking any new users right now, which is too bad, because it is really cool.

It is one phone number for all of your phone numbers. If you call my Grand Central number, it will ring all of my phones. If you are one of my contacts, you will get a personalized voice mail message and maybe even a personalized ring. All of my voice mails through Grand Central will go to my Gmail inbox.
