Podlinez, a free service, just needs you to enter the Podcast Feed URL and it generates a (US) phone number that you can call to listen to that podcast. You can use the * and # keys on your phone to skip forward and backward in the podcast. Now you don't have to miss your podcasts just because you are in office. Here are some of their most popular numbers:
|CNN News Update||+1 (415) 376-7253|
|PotterCast: The Harry Potter Podcast||+1 (818) 688-2780|
|NPR: Hourly News Summary||+1 (650) 523-6819|
|this WEEK in TECH - MP3 Edition||+1 (831) 480-3911|
|The Cell Phone Junkie||+1 (510) 495-6352|
|Diggnation (Mp3)||+1 (408) 538-2141|
|NewsPod||+1 (510) 248-0337|
|Faith Church Weekly Word||+1 (408) 538-2182|
|TalkCrunch||+1 (831) 480-3920|
|Daily GizWiz||+1 (415) 376-7224|
With Alltel Axcess you can use your phone to search and choose from thousands of podcasts. BestStuff puts the monthly subscription at $3.99 but I was unable to verify the same at the Alltel website.
There you are - two WOW services, one that generates a phone number that you can call (use the free office phone) to listen to podcasts and the other to choose from thousands of podcasts without having to remember any numbers. I would prefer the first, which would you choose? Do you think these services can be improved? Leave a comment.
