You Aren't Alone If You Hate Voicemail; Witness The 'Rebirth' Occurring Now
Voicemails are becoming a dying breed as new technologies transcribe voice to text, and email, Twitter and text messages become an easier and more instant way to communicate.
American Public Media's Marketplace reported the growing trend in a radio report yesterday. What they found is that in some cases, voicemail never even left the ground. In fact, Lehman Brothers was one phone call away from being rescued through a private bailout, but Warren Buffett admits it never happened because he didn't know how to check his voicemail. Not to mention, on many occasions, carriers have told me that the number one reason people call customer care is to learn how to set up their voicemail box.
