things i wish my phone did 06

[Download printable version here.] [] [#smarterconversations]


  1. The only service anyone can get at my father’s house, which is at the edge of nowhere in Massachusetts: AT&T.

    Someday I might experience this poor service myself, but until then I’m good.

  2. Get 3G reception in obscure places like central London.

  3. Ha! SOO true Hugh! I just replaced my iPhone4 with a newer model and seems to be working better than the first.

  4. The only reason I don’t own an Iphone (Droid X now)…AT&T…I live in Vegas. Friends with their service drop about three calls a day. No thanks.

    Rock On, Hugh…keep on rollin’.


  5. I have the same sentiment about my cell phone though it’s not an iPhone. It always becomes an “if we can put a man on the moon…” moment.

  6. lisa robinson says:

    Any chance you’ll do a Verizon version? We live in the dead zone…and apparently we have to buy the mini-cell tower for my house in order to get coverage. Grrr.

  7. Wow…have you been spying on me? That’s exactly what the last two years have been like. With my iPhone and AT&T, I had to use Skype just to make any call from my house. Now I’m totally a happy caller with my EVO :)

Hugh MacLeod is a genius.  Genius.

Seth Godin
Best Selling Author

His work acknowledges the absurdity of workaday life, while also encouraging employees to respond with passion, creativity, and non-conformity...   MacLeod’s work is undeniably an improvement over the office schlock of yore. At its best, it’s more honest, and more cognizant of the entrepreneurial psyche, while still retaining some idealism.

Last year my State of the College address was 76 slides loaded with data. This year it was 14 cartoons that were substantially more memorable.

"There are only two daily newsletters that I look forward to opening and reading every time they show up to my inbox: Seth Godin's and gapingvoid."

Tony Hsieh

In moments of indecision I glance at the wall [to Hugh's work] for guidance.
