Don’t forget, Jott it with your cell phone

Let’s say you’re driving down the freeway and have a thought you’d like to write down. Maybe you want to remember something to pick up at a store later in the day. What do you do? Pull over and write it down? Nah. If you had Jott, you could just call the a phone number, leave a voice message, and then the magic begins - it translates that message to text and sends it back to you in email. Really cool service, and here John Pollard, CEO, and Shreedhard Madhavapetti, VP of engineering give us the inside scoop.

    And by that Mr Scoble obviosly means call the phone number using your hands free kit and voice recognition dialing software because we all know doing something with your phone while driving is just stupid…

    So .. let me get this straight .. they’ve got a staff of () very low paid people waiting by the phone typing emails from voicemails you record.

  8. keith Says:

    isnt this the type of job that technology is intended to eliminate? what a horrible concept for a tech startup … creating more call centers and typing pools.

  9. CK Says:

    I think its a great idea getting people to type out the voice messages. This way they can get this site out the door, and get people using it - maybe their speech to text is not perfect yet but sometimes companies do these in between steps to get the ball rolling. Their long term goal is not to employ monkeys to type out voice mails…

    I signed up for the service, unfortunately with my work email address - next day I started getting spam! Their privacy policy states that they will not sell your email address - but loaning it to their sister spamming company is not a problem.
