LIVE VOICEMAIL SCREENING MAY BE COMING TO IPHONE: If you're over a certain age you remember what "screenning your calls" means. Now Apple may be bringing back the practice. Apple Insider reports that Apple was recently granted a patent for the iPhone titled "Audio call screening for hosted voicemail systems." The patent states the feature would allow a call recipient to "conference-in" live as a voicemail message is being left. If Apple makes this idea into a reality it will be the first of its kind. Other visual voicemall apps like YouMail and Google Voice have tried to make checking messages quicker by auto-transcribing them to text messages for reading, but none have allowed the user to pick up when the caller is leaving the message.

David Nail celebrated his career second Number One hit, "Whatever She's Got," with a party in Nashville yesterday (Tuesday, February 25th). The song is the first single from his soon-to-be-released album, I'm A Fire, and while you'd think having a Number One hit right off the bat would ease the pressure of how the project will be received, David tells us that's not the case. ["You know, I mean I think that ironically it adds more. I think that deep down it obviously makes you want more, want another one. I know when 'Let It Rain' went Number One it was really difficult for me to even enjoy it because I'd automatically kind of begun to feel a pressure of releasing something that I felt like was on par with that or could be on par with that and this has been such a big song from the standpoint of bringing so many new fans to the table that you definitely feel like that the next one's gonna be as important."]
David was surprised by label president Mike Dungan with a plaque for platinum sales of "Whatever She's Got."

EMPLOYEES ARE MORE PRODUCTIVE WHEN ALLOWED TO TAKE BREAKS ON THEIR SMARTPHONES: Smartphones can be a huge distraction, so it's rather surprising new research finds that employees who are allowed to play around on their smartphones daily could actually benefit businesses. To find this, researchers surveyed 72 workers and also monitored the participants' smartphone use. Researchers found a positive relationship between using smartphones to take short breaks for things like texting friends and how employees felt by the end of the workday. One researcher says, "If [employees] are happy with social activities and employers know that, they may want to use the phone for those purposes during microbreaks... I'm interested in knowing how microbreak activities can facilitate both well-being and work engagement." Researchers found on average, workers used their phone during the work day for about 20 minutes, which is the perfect amount of time for it to benefit both the employee and the business. (Mashable)
