I have forever hated dialing into conference calls, ESPECIALLY from the road. When we switched to InterCall Reservation-less Plus I was sure we were literally going to get someone killed as they try to fuss with the cal invite, the dialer, and remember the ridiculously long bridge numbers we now have.

This app has some quirks, but, basically, it scans your calendar on your phone and finds meetings with conferences, or hangouts, or webexes, and tracks them for you, AND, prepares single touch buttons to dial the conference call, enter your bridge, and even enter your leader password if you are the leader. 

You can set it to pop up a notification at a configurable time before each call too so everything is automated. 

2 issues:

1. if you use Google Voice as your dialer, it doesn't play well and you have to hit the prompt to dial without Google Voice - I submitted as a Bug to mobileday. 

I did have some issues setting up my InterCall host, so here are the settings I made after walking through their wizard.

P.S. Happy Birthday Sean. Also, is Google maps able to support multiple map projections? Any progress on WMS or JPIP? And how can we send in 3D models to your base layer anymore? We have historical Cahokia Mounds recreation - high-quality - that would be great to add into Google's base layer. 

Sorry for off-topic questions on your post (which was helpful!). I just reached my magic number of "3 things"...

Take a walk down the Manasquan Boardwalk (circa December 2007) in StreetView!

Orriginally blogged about capturing the data for this back in 2007, before I was a Googler.

Now possible thanks to Google Maps Views and the new Constellation Editor!!!

I remember well your experiment, and the discussion it created!

It's things like this that i always view as pebbles ... toss 'em, and 1 time in a 1,000, they'll generate an avalanche. And there're a couple of avalanches that have your pebbles buried under them, if i'm not mistaken :-)

Hate for Verizon Wireless grows every day.

The ONLY US carrier that won't offer the Nexus 5. Why? Because they just can't let a $329 off-contract device challenge their scheme to keep off-contract phone prices high and lock customers into overpriced data plans.

They also can't stand a device that they don't get to bloat with their garbage applications.

Their network is a monopoly in my area and I'm "Lucky" enough to be grandfathered onto an Unlimited data plan or I'd be gone.

So, now that Sprint is getting it, we know that it is not a CDMA-4G issue.

Some good times over the last year. Glad Google came out with this. Wish they would backtrack from previous years.

I don't know where you think you are +Sean Wohltman, but you are most certainly not here. I know this because I am here, and I don't see you.

Fantastic location, good food, good live music, and cold beer. Service was a bit slow...that is a good thing, relax, you're in Kona!

Great beach access and amenities for the family, extremely friendly and helpful staff. Definitely an older crowd during our stay, and felt at times that we were being judged for having a 2 year old with us. Great spot for access to local attractions and restaurants in Kona, and if you never leave the beach - pretty nice snorkeling right near the hotel. Not the best, the reef is a bit torn up, but I saw tons of reef fish and a sea turtle within the first 10 minutes within 50 yards of the beach!

Don't take the SpeediShuttle! Take a cab, if you want to get there from the airport in under an hour. We had a great stay, and Marriott Elite Gold members will likely get an upgrade, and you get 2 Free drinks per day, and a free breakfast / brunch which is really quite nice. Great location for Waikiki access, great service, and friendly staff!

Have been coming to Carlson's since I've been been born, so I guess 31 years. I'm really happy with the latest new management, and have been happy since the last new owners renovated and brought Carlsons back rather than turning it into a house. I feel terrible that the new management had such a disaster after purchasing the business with Superstorm Sandy, and I truly admire them cleaning up, restoring, and being ready for Summer 2013. The food continues to not only be simple and delicious, but true to what Carlson's has always been. The Porkroll and Cheese is the best in town, and the Fried Onions on the Original Carlson's Burger are delicious. The girls at the counter are friendly and extremely helpful, and the boys in the back continue to grind out great food in the hot box on even the hottest days standing in front of the grills and friers. The best part is waiting for your food, watching the surfers and fishermen walk by, and enjoying the atmosphere of locals and bennies alike just relaxing and enjoying themselves. So happy to have Carlson's around for my son; this is summer, this is Manasquan, this is awesome!

Fantastic and relaxing hotel for families. We found Kapolei to be a relaxing and welcoming location on Oahu, away from the crowds of tourists in Waikiki. Lots of timeshare owners, which were very friendly and family oriented. Our son loved the Lagoon pool and the calm waters of the man-made cove on the beach. Do realize that you're pretty much locked into the resort for everything (meals, bar, etc.) unless you have a car to run out to Safeway. It is about a $90 cab ride from the airport, so you might want to take a shuttle or arrange group transit. Longboards is nice, but don't count on frequent attendance from waiters if you're at the pool - you're better off going up to the bar yourself. That said, you can only get 1 drink per person in Hawaii, which is a bit annoying if you wanted to get drinks for your wife or your friends without them being present, but is a state law. Great exercise opportunities from swimming, Yoga, water aerobics, and the walking trail which goes through the Disney resort and the JW Marriott properties.

Must have been an off night because my family has long liked Trattoria. Brought my in-laws and dinner was a real disappointment. Started out with our drink order, and the assistant waiter had no pad or pen but couldn't for the life of him remember two waters, 3 glasses for BYOB and a diet coke. Whatever, summer help, kid, no big deal. Our waiter was fine, except I said to please bring our 18 month old's kids' meal out as soon as it was done - spaghetti and meatballs - it was the last thing out. Should have gone with a pie or something simple, but was the first night of vacation and splurged for the $22 lobster and ravioli in Scampi Sauce and Shrimp entre. My mother did as well. Couldn't have been more let down by this meal. Tasted like Fancy Feast Ravioli in Butter Soup, almost no garlic. The shrimp were salad size at best, and cooked to the point of being rubber. My wife ordered the Seafood Fra Diavlo and it was even worse. Step 1: Seafood. Step 2: Pasta. Step 3: Bottle of Hot Sauce. Step 4: Profit? Guess so. She sent it back, and asked for at least a little marinara or something to cut the hot sauce, because it was seriously just seafood, pasta, and hot sauce - terrible. Would never go back, but, may order pizza if hammered.
