Website Of The Day: Popularity Dialer

You know those moments where you wish you had the magical power to make your cell phone ring, giving you a legitimate excuse to end a conversation, dodge your boss, ex or that strange person that can't seem to take your subtle hints? The Popularity Dialer allows you to plan ahead. Via a web interface, you can choose to have your phone called at a particular time (or several times). At the elected time, your phone will be dialed and you will hear a prerecorded message that's one half of a conversation. Thus, you will be prompted to have a fake conversation and can easily fool whoever is bugging you.

Currently, five free calls may be made to a particular number. The company is looking for sponsors. To watch a hilarious video about how Popularity Dialer works,

To learn how to post your favorite sites to the Website of the Day group, just follow the steps below.

  1. First of all, join the Website of the Day group
  2. Click "Create and Share!" on the left hand side
  3. Choose "Blog"
  4. Give your photo a Title
  5. Leave the category as "general"
  6. Change the channel to "technology and gadgets"
  7. Add keyword(s) (for example mine for this photo was "Website of the Day")
  8. Click on the "Add Image" link below the "body" box
  9. A popup window will happen - click on "Browse" to find your image on your computer
  10. Once you have the image chosen, click "Submit"
  11. The popup will show you your image, choose size: "normal" - if you want, you can give it a title (which will show up as a caption)
  12. Click "Insert" and the popup will go away
  13. Your "body" box will now have some text in it. Leave it as is. If you want to add some text before the picture telling me why you love the website, do it before the code that has appeared.
  14. Click Submit

So join the Website of the Day group and share information about all of your favorite sites! Yours just might end up on the geeksugar homepage!
