Hey there, this site is pretty old now. I've decided to leave it up as I put a lot of work into it and would hate to see it disappear.

Call Wave is an voice mail replacement for cell phones. I get really terrible service on my cell phone where I currently live so I seldom check my voice messages. To top that off Verizon has one of the worst systems for listening to voice mails (which consists of listing off 100+ key combination to do random actions.) Another problem with them is their delay in alerting me when I have a voice message. Sometimes I'll get an alert on my phone only to find out somebody called 2 hours earlier, and I'll listen to my message and the phone will alert me again as if I didn't listen to it. Call Wave to the rescue.
Call Wave is a replacement for Verizon's crappy service. Call Wave will send me a text message AND an email every time I miss a call or receive a voice mail. Since I check my email more often than my phone this service works perfect for me. You can also turn of the text message alert option if you do not have a plan for texting.
Even more impressive are Call Waves features. In the email it sends me, It send a MP3 file with the voice message attached. It also gives me a link to immediately text message the caller back. Another feature it has is it gives me the location the caller called from, such as Appleton WI. This comes in really handy when trying to determine who the unknown caller was.
By moving my entire voice mail management system online, Call Wave works better for me. For those who still like the old fashioned way, you can still check your messages from your cell phone using Call Waves menu as well. I give it a 9 out of 10.

I recently bought a new TV set that came with Netflix embedded into the TV's software. I had previously been using Blockbuster, mostly as just a holdover since all my movies were entered
using that service. A friend of mine recommended Netflix, and since it was integrated into my TV I gave it a try. Since then I have been quite satisfied with the service.
One of the best things about Netflix is I can pick out movies on my computer and they will show up on my TV letting me pick from them since my TV is hooked up to the internet.
Not all movies on the service are available this way, and not all of the movies available are in HD. Regardless, this is a really awesome option. In a way it's almost like I own
the movies because they can permanently sit in my streaming queue on my TV.
Also, while using Blockbuster I would often pick out obscure 80's horror movies that I'm interested in. It seemed like these movies were always stuck in "long wait" mode and half
of them never shipped. I have a feeling that Blockbuster didn't have these movies available in the first place and was just trying to lead me on with them. After using Netflix
I've found that all of these movies are available and immediately.
It seems like Netflix might be slightly faster with shipping times than Blockbuster. Overall I probably average about a movie once a week or sometimes twice a week. I do think that Netflix
ships my next movie quicker than Blockbuster did.
Overall I'm quite satisfied with Netflix and all of the devices they're available on. I could pick between my Xbox 360, Blu Ray player or TV set to watch movies on and I'm quite happy
with the available movies to choose from with the service. I give Netflix a 9/10
