It’s tough being a parent these days. For one thing there is just never enough time. You want to connect with your child, but you have so much to do. Well, maybe Toymail will help.
Toymail is a mailbox-shaped toy that lets you send voicemail straight to your kids. So when you can’t be with them you can at least talk with them. Your child can send you messages to you as well by hitting reply. I suppose you could use a phone, but not everyone wants their child to have access to one so this is a good option. Besides, something that looks like a toy is better for kids.
You can get it online for £49.99 (~$82 USD) from Firebox.
Being a working parent is hard. Aside from missing out on some of your kid’s firsts, it sucks not being able to hang out and bond with your offspring as much as you want to. You can, however, harness the power of modern technology and make them feel your presence one way or another, like with Toymail.
It’s a small, mailbox-shaped toy that lets you send voicemail straight to your kids. The awesome part is that your child can send you messages, too, simply by hitting ‘reply.’
Toymail is available online for £49.99 (or about $82+).

The Martian hills are alive with the sound of music. Well, NASA Administrator Charles Bolden's voice at least, as the agency reveals that the first recorded human voice has traveled from Earth, to another planet, and back. The words might not have literally echoed in the surrounding hills, but by having been beamed to Curiosity and back again, have made a small step towards interplanetary communication. Along with the motivational words of Bolden, the rover returned some telephoto images from the onboard 100mm and 34mm lenses. The pictures show the hills toward which Curiosity is bound, and tease the scientists with their rich-looking -- and hopefully revealing -- layers of geology.

Up until now, the Boost Mobile crowd's been missing out on those fancy visual voicemail creations, but that's about to change starting on May 31st. Earlier today, Smith Micro announced it's delivering its Visual Voicemail features to the prepaid-friendly carrier, with the upcoming Boost-branded HTC EVO Design 4G being the first slab to offer said tidbits. Smith Micro is also adding an optional service dubbed "Voicemail-to-Text," which -- for an extra $1.99 per month -- will essentially turn those vocal messages into words and send them to you via text message or email. With the launch of the "four-gee" waves in mind, we're certain you're enjoying all the incoming news of late.Permalink | | Email this | Comments
