This is the next best thing to a memory! Each voicemail is transcribed and sent to your email account and your cell phone.
Not only does it take seconds to scan to the most important parts, it gives you a written archive for those things you would like to retain, act upon, forward to a colleague or assistant, etc.
http://phonetag.com/newsandevents.html is where you’ll fine this up-and-coming business dream! And the price is right, too.
Formerly called SimulScribe, PhoneTag is a voice to text service. To be precise, PhoneTag converts your voicemail into text messages and then sends them directly to your mobile phone, Blackberry, and/or your email account.

Continuing the Excel macro theme… many employees receive company data from mainframe systems–perhaps even a screen copy or web paste.
Often the data is not delimited or structured in any way, so it does not want to go into Excel columns. They must first spend significant time ‘shaping the data’ into columns and rows prior to beginning analysis. Learning these few Excel features and more about the power of macros will eliminate that drudgery forever.
Click the following link and go midway down the page to ‘An Excel Macro for Parsing Text Data’. This will work for 10 rows or 10,000 rows, and can save you hundreds of hours! [click here].
