While I haven’t tried Google Voice (let alone read into it any more than from this post), it does sound like the future of the “phone”, hands down.
What worries me about this “death of the phone as we loved it” idea is that it becomes just another excuse for ISPs to put on the spurs and start digging higher prices and bandwidth control into you and I, the average consumer.
If everything starts going to the web - much as it has begun to with the iPhone and mobile web - what’s to stop ISPs from “ruling the world”? is the internet service industry becoming the new auto industry?
Anyway, enough ranting from me. Great topic to think about!
