The Inventor Of Voicemail

from the love-it-or-hate-it.. dept

The San Jose Mercury has a profile of the guy who invented voice mail. You’ll be happy to know that he, too, gets annoyed at being stuck in “voice mail jail” when you are always listening to “press one for…”. The guy seems like a full time inventor, as he has a bunch of other patents as well – including one to find the same song you’ve been listening to on another radio station and another to speed up golfers on a golf course.
