Google just announced a new service called Google Voice (click here for Mashable’s story). According to Mashable:
The service looks a lot like Gmail for voicemail, although you don’t have to be a Gmail user to use it. It lets you retrieve transcripts of your voicemail, archive and search all your sent and received SMS messages, and you can make calls directly from Google Voice’s interface. The calls are free in the US, and cost a small fee internationally.

So here’s the really cool part for us writers…
You can call Google Voice and leave yourself messages. Google will automatically transcribe the messages into text and email them to you!
So, next time you’re in the car or you just don’t feel like typing, you can simply call Google Voice and you’ll get your words emailed back to you. How cool is that!!Receive email updates when new articles are posted.
