Introducing Fiber Phone

Introducing Fiber Phone | @BadasseBs | Scoop.it

 "Fiber Phone is meant to give you everything you want from a home phone service, plus a lot more. For $10/month, you get unlimited local and nationwide calling, and the same affordable rates as Google Voice for international calls. You can keep your old phone number, or pick a new one. You can use call waiting, caller ID, and 911 services just as easily as you could before. Fiber Phone can also make it easier to access your voicemail—the service will transcribe your voice messages for you and then send as a text or email.

Bonnie Sandy's insight:

Prince: ‘I was right about the internet – tell me a musician who’s got rich off it’ | @BadasseBs | Scoop.it
When our correspondent was abruptly summoned to an audience with the legendary artist in his Minneapolis studios, he had no idea what to expect. Certainly not being asked to duet on Sign o’ the Times ...
Bonnie Sandy's insight:

Do you blame the internet or do you blame the musicians for not exploring and mastering the tool! The fact is many musicians do not get rich offline either. 

There was a female who did over $1 mill independently and several others. The challenge is that most musicians and creative have a one track pre-conceived notion as to how to extract VALUE from their craft... so the numerous ways to make money online not only evade them. We also there is a digital aristocracy emerging who are essentially digital Lord in a new feudal system. earning their wealth off the hard work of others WITHOUT contributing anything or even y raw material tools or resources needed to produce...

Jim Signorelli,Story-Lab's curator insight, January 27, 9:57 AM

Don't be fooled by the headline of this article.  It's directed at banks but it's relevant to all businesses.  As an article, it jumps around a lot. However, it provides a great deal of wisdom.  


Be sure to read the author's comparison between good and bad business storytelling using Citibank as the example.  The "good" is a great example of looking at life for what it is.  Too often business storytellers reflect life in an idealized way.  Life is messy!  Put away the fairytales and say it like it is.

After six months with Google's Project Fi, I'd switch to it if I could @Nicole's review

After six months with Google's Project Fi, I'd  switch to it if I could @Nicole's review | @BadasseBs | Scoop.it
As with any carrier, you can port over an existing number or opt for a new one. But there's a caveat if you're a current Google Voice user. If you decide to use Fi with a non-Google Voice number -- say, a primary phone number or a new line altogether -- then by signing up with Fi, you're forfeiting the use of that Google Voice number forever. That's it. No take-backs. For me, keeping my Google Voice number was pretty important -- I sometimes use it as a secondary number for work -- so I decided to assign my Fi service to it. Which is fine, but I wish I didn't have such a conundrum over whether to keep my Google Voice number alive just so I could use Fi. [Ed. Correction: We're told that you can actually transfer that Google Voice number to a separate Google account if you want to keep it, so all is not lost.]
