Greg Papadopoulos CTO of Sun Microsystems on voicemail

In this article on the BBC Technology web site Greg Papadopoulos, CTO of Sun Microsystems, comments on how broken voicemail systems are. “When I look at my phone, with the nice display and all sorts of processing power, I begin to think that voicemail is not just bad – it’s ridiculously broken. Messages should come down to my phone well ahead of when I want to listen so that I can organise them. Since the beginning of personal computing, we’ve thought about PCs as machines that sit on our desks Then I want to be able to arrange voicemails like my e-mail, where I could see all the messages and pick amongst them.”
