I have been using Jott.com for a while now. I really love it. I am a big notebook guy, little notebooks to write thoughts and ideas. As I blogged before I usually get ideas in the shower or car. Mostly int he car and then I would try and scribble it down in my notebook. Not too safe I know. I never brought the notebook int he shower but I did spend some time looking for a underwater white board- you know the kind Divers use so I could hang it in the shower. But that idea died. Might be a good company holiday gift.
But I don’t really carry a notebook as much now. I use Jott.com which is a number I call and then I leave a message. The message is transcribed back to me in an email. I know its not safe to talk ont he phone in your car but with a handset it is a lot safer than writing.
Today Jott sent this email saying they have partnered with Amazon.com. So now I can drive around and shop. Kind of weird. But not. Amazon is coming out with all sort of interesting stuff this holiday season. Smart marketing, getting people talking. I heard Jeff Bezos on NPR yesterday talking about the Kindle Book Reader which looks interesting. Amazon is starting conversations and what do you know the holidays are coming.
Starting today you can Jott to Amazon.com! No need to add Amazon to your account, it is already there in your contact info for your convenience. It’s easy to use, and will make all that holiday shopping fast and convenient.
Jott: “Who do you want to Jott?”
Jott: “Amazon, is that correct?”
You: “iPod Nano” (Please only state the product or item name; just like you’d type it on Amazon’s website).
Jott will send you an email with the top 5 results for your search, complete with price info and user ratings. Click one of the items in your email and you will be sent right to the product details on Amazon, where you can easily add it to your Wish List or shopping cart.
