Jaxtr is now available in public beta. Jaxtr a cool web based phone app that lets people call you by clicking on your jaxtr html badge. Once someone clicks on your badge, your phone rings, you pick it up, then it rings through to the person on the other end.
GrandCentral is also now available in public beta. GrandCentral is a phone service that does many things. First off, you get a single number that will ring all your existing phone lines (cell, home, work etc.) and direct missed or screened calls to a centralized voicemailbox. (I should note that Vonage offers a similar service as part of the basic package, it’s called Ring Lists). In addition, you can record calls, listen in on your voicemail as it being recorded, create custom greetings for individual callers, and even block phone solicitors. What’s the catch? Well, there isn’t one really, according to their FAQ, a free version will always be available, but after the beta GrandCentral will be charging a monthly fee for premium features.
