Journeyman Project Dispatches from the Life of Patrick Fowler: Christianity Explored


Talking to my Windows Mango Phone

Getting tired of all those, "Don't txt and drive" advertisements? Well, now you can do it safely. Just listen to this conversation I had recently with my phone, via my bluetooth headset. I can now text and drive without ever looking at my phone:

WP: [music pauses]You have a text message from Stacy Fowler. You can say read it or ignore.
Me: Read it.
WP: “When will you be home?” You can say reply, call or I’m done.
Me: Reply.
WP: Say your message.
Me: “In about 20 minutes.”
WP: [The phone transcribes and repeats the message] You can say send, try again, or I’m done.
Me: Send. [music resumes]

My advice: try it for yourself!
