Pheil: No mobile signal? No problem

Today I have to share with you yet another very cool innovation that’s currently available for pre-order only. It’s called GoTenna.

GoTenna is a nifty little device that syncs up with your phone and lets you text and share your exact location with anyone else who also has a GoTenna — even if you don’t have service. Perfect for those of us who wander off into the wilderness by ourselves on foot or on a bike (and just as perfect for the people who worry about us when we do so).

No satellites required. No towers required. No routers required. No cell service required. No Wi-Fi required. So long as you (and someone else) have a GoTenna, you’re covered.

How much will this little beauty cost? Right now a pair of GoTennas are pre-selling for $150.

Would you ever actually use these in public? I have a hunch there are at least some direct, brash, assertive souls out there who would dare to do so. For the rest of the world, these “sssshh” cards can at least give us a solid chuckle.

Visit this link to grab a humorous three-page PDF of sssshh cards you can hand to THAT person at the bus stop, in line at the grocery store, at the post office, at the coffee shop — you know, THAT person. The person who seems to be talking on their phone with someone who’s horrifically hard of hearing all while being completely oblivious that everyone within a 50-foot radius has no possible way to shut out their conversation without the use of heavy duty ear plugs or powerful sedatives.

Cut out these cards and keep a couple in your wallet or purse for your next encounter with THAT person. And if things get pretty bad, you might just be motivated to hand one over.

If nothing else, they’re great for sharing and great for a laugh.

If your business has a website and there’s even a 1 percent chance you might rework it in the next few years, you owe it to yourself to learn what a responsive website is.

Here’s a quick and dirty blog post that’ll teach you everything you need to know. (Pictures and examples included!)
