You know how some hotels will give you a wakeup call if you're worried that you won't wake-up in time? Well, you can get the same kind of service using a site such as Wakerupper or WakeupDialer. Both services will call you at an exact time you specify, but each have their own benefits. And both don't even require an account for you to start using them.

I don't make many phone calls, but lately I've been on the verge of migrating my contacts over to my Google Voice phone number. The big reason I want to to do this is to to completely eliminate my text messaging fees, and with the official Google Voice app for the iPhone I'm awfully close to making the complete transition.
As a consumer, would you rather have a camera in a phone or a phone in a camera? What we mean by that is, these days it seems phone manufacturers throw a camera in as a second thought and it's there, but not really quality. What if camera manufacturers were to take their quality cameras and include a phone with them? That's what Sony Ericsson is trying to do with the C905 Cyber-shot.
Last week Google hosted a conference that was geared towards developers, and during the keynote they showed off some of the cool things that the Android mobile operating system was capable of doing. In it's current state I would say that Android doesn't appear to be quite as polished as the iPhone, but the functionality is definitely awesome.
One thing that I've looked for in the past is a way to send and receive faxes online without having to fork out some sort of fee. Personally I would have thought by now that faxes would have become extinct, but apparently they are still a critical part of how people conduct business each and every day.
Regularly making phone calls Internationally can get pretty darn pricey these days! Coming to the rescue of those callers is Skype who today, just announced new unlimited calling plans to overseas phones for an extremely reasonable price.
In under a year Apple has been able to fill a void in the mobile browser market that apparently few other devices can live up to. The iPhone is often criticized for having the slow Edge network wireless chipset in it, but regardless there are new reports that it has become the most used mobile browser for Internet access in the United States.
There has been a lot of talk over the last week about Sprint's new Samsung Instinct phone that is supposed to be a true iPhone competitor.
It wasn't that long ago that it was next to impossible to pickup a new laptop for under $1000, but now you can regularly find them for just a few hundred dollars. And there's no arguing that people are becoming more and more connected thanks to the Internet access proved by cellphone networks. When you combine the falling prices of laptops with the increased connectivity what do you get?
An official press release from Microsoft puts to rest concern that Microsoft Surface is really just vaporware. Starting on April 17th, select AT&T stores will receive the Microsoft Surface computers to change the way that consumers purchase mobile devices.
Microsoft just released Windows Mobile 6.1 yesterday, and they've added some features that are actually pretty slick. The new home screen is really the focal point of the release. With it you have several "panels" that get expanded as you scroll up and down over them. A video demonstration of this (and other features) is at the end of the article.
Each year, communicating through text messages continues to grow and has now turned into an extremely popular communication medium. Millions upon millions of text messages are sent every single month and carriers only anticipate that the number of messages sent by their subscribers will continue to grow.
If cameras became good enough in cell phones, would you ditch your stand-alone camera? What I mean by that is this, right now I use the camera in my phone on occasion for those times when I have forgotten my camera and there's something that needs to be captured. I prefer a quality camera though, and so at this point, I could never stop using my camera and start using the one that comes buil [...]
Macworld put 2 and 2 together today to figure out that there are over 1 million iPhones that are unaccounted for from Apple's numbers. Earlier Apple said that 3.7 million iPhones were sold in 2007 during the first 6 months it was available. AT&T on the other hand, said that they have a little under two million iPhone customers.
In the race of who can attract the most subscribers and keep them onboard in the mobile phone world, Sprint is crawling! Their subscribers are leaving by the thousands, and because of that, their employees are forced to leave in the thousands as well.
I'm not sure how many of you have used the free GOOG-411 service before, but I've used it over a dozen times since its release. The speed and accuracy of the automated system is rather astounding, and the fact that you don't have to pay $1.25 just to get a phone number is what really catches people's attention.
As expected Google released their Android Software Development Kit (SDK) today. It provides all of the tools needed to start creating applications that run on the next generation mobile operating system, and Google is getting their checkbooks out to help ensure that Android won't be a flop...
