Submission + - Time for Voice-Mail to Throw in the Towel? 1

theodp writes: "Slate's Farhad Manjoo feels the end of voice-mail is nigh, and it won't be missed. Since March, Farhad's been using Google Voice to transcribe his voice-mail messages into text that he gets as skimmable e-mail. No more listening to at least a bit of each voice-mail message, hearing the same instructional prompts between each, and worrying about whether it's 9-to-archive and 7-to-skip (or vice versa). Goodbye and good riddance, says Manjoo, to an 'absurdly backward mode of human-computer interaction' that he half-jokes must violate the Geneva Conventions."

    Resistance is futile.
    Your voicemail as it has been is over.
    From this time forward, your voicemail is with us - and we won't do any evil about it.
    And oh, we need a sample of your blood.
