I’m having my assistant Ruth sign up for Google Voice this morning.
One of Google Voice’s cool features is that it allows a user on a computer to send a text message (free of charge to the sender) to a cell phone.
Presently when I’m out of the office, I have Ruth send me emails. Sometimes there’s a delay in me getting the email. Other times, I don’t notice the email right away because of the settings on my phone.
Text messages are more intrusive than emails and less intrusive than phone calls. When in court it’s hard to talk on the phone. If Ruth has something important to send to me out of the office she’ll now be able to text me free of charge to her.
Ruth is good at making me look good. With Google Voice in her toolbox, I think she’ll be even better at making me look good.
