anyone heard chatter with Grandcentral ?? they were acquired by Googs in july/07.. after all goog's did bid for spectrum space and also the gphone gadget in the pipeline..

so what the overall strategy with grandcentral ?? and when do we see a new product ?? Will project CARE be morphed into the next killer app ??

That's not Project Care at all. The project is to give phone numbers and voicemail boxes to homeless people so that they can have a way to get in touch with people.

I use Grand Central. It's pretty sweet. It allows me to have one number ring to all my phones. The part I like is if I don't want the person calling me again, I log into the web page, select their number and choose to block them. They then get a message that the number is no longer in service.

i've got 2 invites left – if you want one, msg me tarman (at) gmail

I know speculation is that GrandCentral will be targeted for Apps. But my hope is that it will be fully integrated with GMail for one ultimate communication hub.
