    I'm loving the voice-text message idea, I better go grab a patent on that......

    Can't believe people were offended by the big boobs in the code, something very few people would ever see. My code is filled with bad language Expressionless

    Wow your interviews are getting tough if you need to go through days/weeks worth of "challenges" just to get a job.

    I already have Social Connector installed on my outlook 2010. It's really useful. When I see a strange name I need to know which pronoun I should use(he/she). I look at the picture and use the right pronoun.

    If you want to send a voice text check out the Voxer app in the android market. It does exactly what you are asking for.

    I do not know if there is a windows version but it would be worth looking into. The technology is available.

    @WastedYoda: Yes, but then you need to have an app installed to send/receive the message which means I wouldn't send the voice-text to anyone. A low-level integrated system like SMS/MMS is what we need, I call it VMS. Smiley
