Got an idea or an inspiration struck your head and you wish you had a minute or two to write it down, yet you don’t have access to a pen and paper? Well, if you have a phone, you can now send yourself an MP3 of your idea. All you need to do is sign up for drop.io, where you will get a free 100MB space to drop any file. Then you’ll be able to call in a number and record yourself via cell phone. Once you hang up, you’ll be able to access and download the file as an MP3.
You’ll also be able to share your files with everyone, a few friends, or just keep it to yourself with drop.io. You can also make your space expires in a day, a week, a month, 6 months or a year.
Now, 100 MBs may not sound like a lot if you’re going to use this for strictly voice, but that’s 400 minutes (close t0 6.5 hours) of storage there.
On the expense side, this is not really a "money saving" method. Unless you don’t plan on buying a voice recorder or you rather not carry one around, this can be very handy to have on speed dial. It’s good to know in case you don’t have a pen and pad in hand.
Hmmm… I wonder if I can record an album with this…
