Nice set of tips about time wasting in Startups over at GeekWire. Includes the following hat-tip to Dial2Do:
But if you must continue driving, use tools like Dial2Do to at least capture the good ideas you’ll have that otherwise would be lost to the road.
We find many of our users working with Dial2Do in this way: using it as a one-button way to save thoughts, idea sand to-dos while driving. Especially with features like Evernote integration using Voice2Note, it makes never losing that killer idea a snap!

Dial2Do and Global Bluetooth headset manufacturer SouthWing will announce the new SouthWing Voice Assistant service at the ShowStoppers Event at Mobile World Congress, Barcelona on Sunday evening.
Together with SouthWing’s patented Push4™ button, the SouthWing Assistant ushers in a new era of convenience, safety and productivity for drivers. Drivers just push a button on their headset or carkit and speak to send text messages, send and listen to emails, record reminders and more. Powered by Dial2Do’s Voice Platform, the service is a boost for anyone who wants to make best use of their time in the car, but stay safe and legal behind the wheel.
“This is a world first” says Bart Huisken, SouthWing Founder, “We’ve focused on making it totally simple for drivers to get things done and drive safely. With the SouthWing Assistant, you press a button and just talk to send emails, reminders and more. The combination of our patented Push4 button with Dial2Do’s voice platform makes it a “joined up” experience for the user, an industry first. The combination of a single button to press and a single price to pay for everything gives users simplicity and convenience in both service and pricing.”
Dial2Do will be demonstrating the service at the Mobile Monday Peer Awards Barcelona, where they have been shortlisted in the Early Stage Startup category. The MobileMonday Mobile Peer Awards Barcelona are among the most influential events in the mobile industry and, with over 1000 attendants, the point of reference in startup innovation during the Mobile World Congress. Dial2Do was nominated by peers in the Dublin Chapter of Mobile Monday.
Dial2Do will be in action all week at Mobile World Congress, and are exhibiting on the Enterprise Ireland Pavilion in Hall 1, Stand 1F17. Dial2Do will also be taking part in the Mobile Jam for Wireless Developers, now called WipJam on Thursday at MWC, and are helping chair the session on Making Money.

Next week the Dial2Do team will be in Las Vegas for CTIA 2008. We’re kicking off the week by taking part in the Mobile Jam Session, where we’ll be discussing everything to do with “Mobile 2.0”. If you’re in to anything to do with Mobile meets the Web2 ecosystem, then get yourself over there and pitch in. The Jam sessions are primarily for developers, are very relaxed and informal, and some great people turn up and participate. It’s free and you can sign up on the website.
We’ll be in LasVegas for the week, and we’ll be exhibiting our wares and showing off Dial2Do in action on our stand (The Ireland Pavilion) at Stand 627-G. If you’d like to meet up – drop us a line at help “at” dial2do “dot” com.
Stop by, say hello. We’ll give you a demo and maybe even buy you a coffee. If it’s later in the day we might even nab a beer 🙂
