Announce your intent II
Posted on April 6, 2008
I’ve chatted with a friend of mine about this (and also bragged to him that my blog is now linked by cnn on the article of cybercrime ) and he gave my an interesting thought. The calls may be also categorized as of urgent, normal and low importance.
I’ve also discussed this idea with Cladiu Hulea and together we’ve come up to a very simple idea on how this technology can be successfully implemented. The message announcing your intent could be like an associated sms that is sent along with the call. More or less like the location cell information you can receive on your mobile.
The mobile companies need to do the software protocol that would read both information (the call info and the associated sms) and display them together. I’m not sure how the call info is transmitted over to the phone, but I guess the call will have one byte more that would look like 1 0101110 if there is an associated sms with it (the first 1 – means that the call has an associated sms with it, while the rest will be with an identifier of the sms) or a simple 0 0000000 (if there is no sms associated).
