Google Voice released for iPhone

Google Voice released for iPhone Google has announced the launch of a new version of Google Voice for the Apple iPhone, one that cannot be downloaded through the app store but instead used through the web browser.
In July, the original Google Voice app was rejected from the app store and faced large criticism, prompting the FCC to look into Apple's rejection process.

The Voice service allows users to make cheap long-distance calls online, and the ability to forward phone calls from one number to multiple phones.

Google says the new version is a "Web app" that is "much more interactive than the previous browser-based version of the service, with the ability to listen to voice mails directly from within the browser and to dial phone numbers on an interactive on-screen keypad."

The new version will work for iPhone 3.0 and above firmware and for WebOS based Palm smartphones.

That is true. And that is not the only thing they are being busy too. I don't know if I want Google Broadband to work out or not. Granted, Google does offer some very competitive services. I allow that Google Broadband will probably be faster than other broadband services, and likely at prices that won't send the average person running for payday loans for decent internet. What I object to is the fact that Google is slowly revealing itself to actually be Skynet, and will become self aware very soon and will then unleash Google Terminators upon the Earth and begin the robot apocalypse.
