Slydial a new voice mail service allows you to send voice messages to people, whom you don’t want to confront in real life or engage with in a direct conversation. If this sounds strange there are plenty of situations and dozens of people in our lives whom we don’t want to talk to.
Slydial lets the callers dial a number but allows them to avoid the conversation as the incoming call goes undetected at the other end. The recipient only sees a notification of a voice message and gets to know what you said in an asynchronous manner allowing you to avoid questions you don’t want to answer.
The service is already becoming a ubiquity in dumping boyfriends and girl friends. According to Matt Ritchel of the the NYT:
When Alexis Gorman, 26, wanted to tell a man she had been dating that the courtship was over, she felt sending a Dear John text message was too impersonal. But she worried that if she called the man, she would face an awkward conversation or a confrontation.
So she found a middle ground. She broke it off in a voice mail message, using new technology that allowed her to jump directly to the suitor’s voice mail, without ever having to talk to the man — or risk his actually answering the phone.
In addition to using Slydial for the purpose mentioned above, you can also use it to inform your wife, that the funds reserved for the tuition fees of the kids have been spent gambling, or for other intuitive ideas see the complete list of situations in which Slydial could be used.
