Using Google Voice with Your Current Number

Really cool new way to incorporate all the great feature of Google Voice with your exising number.

I've been using it for a few months now...and I love the voicemail. Now, I have the ability to take all my calls with Google's great voicemail. Color me a happy camper.

Here's the post from the Official Google Blog on the announcement, new features, and a video showing how it works. Thanks Google:

Up until now, if you wanted to use Google Voice, you needed to choose a new number (a "Google number"). Taking calls through your Google number allows us to offer features like call recording, call screening and getting text messages via email. But we know not everyone wants to switch to a new phone number, so it made sense for us to create a lighter version of Google Voice for people who are willing to trade some features for the ability to use their existing numbers.

We're excited to announce that you now have the choice to get Google Voice with your existing mobile number OR with a Google number.

If you sign up using your existing number, you'll still get many of Google Voice's features. Most notably, you'll get all the functionality of Google voicemail, as explained in this video:

Drunkest Guy Ever


These videos are great...but the remixes that usually blow make it so much better.

Here's the original:

Funny, eh?
Wait until you see the Silent Movie remix...freakin' awesome.

But...wait, there's more! Here's the Benny Hill version for brevity's sake...clocking in at 1:26.

Jon Hamm + Blues = Epic

I've really liked Jon Hamm and his awesome character Don Draper on his awesome show, Mad Men, for a few years now.

His appearance on Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifanakis was hilarious.

Now, he's reached a new echelon.

Why am I just now finding out that he's a Blues fan? This is important info, people!

Check out these two spots for Blues fans. Awesome...just flat out awesome...

"Hi, I'm Jon Hamm. I live in Hollywood now..but, I was born and raised in St. Louis. I've had this hat for 15 years"

Hey Jon...love that lid, my man. I can tell that dude's got Missouri blood running through those veins.

Enjoy the sneak peek version:

Star Wars Uncut Trailer

Such a cool idea..and definitely one that I'm considering.

Should I claim a scene and get busy being part of the coolest fan project I've seen in years? Well, when I put it that way.

Check out what I'm talking about in the trailer:
