IWantSandy is something totally different than youâ€™ve ever seen before. She is a calendar program, todo list keeper, goals reminder and everything you would want in a virtual assistant except for the paycheck.
I know, I know, youâ€™ve seen calendar programs before and youâ€™re just not impressed. Well Iâ€™m here to tell you that Sandy is not just another calendar program, if anything sheâ€™s Calendar 2.0! (yea, uh-huh, I went there!)
The thing that sets Sandy apart is the fact that once you have logged in and setup your account; you never have to visit the website again. Sandy is fully versed in such new media tools as twitter, jott and Google Calendar. You can email Sandy, Direct Message her via twitter, and even jott to her. She recognizes plain English command like
Remember meeting tomorrow at 9:00 AM with the lovely and talented Kathy
Remember I want to lose 10lb @goal
She can even decipher to-do lists.
Iâ€™ve used a lot of calendar programs, PDAs and â€œdashboardsâ€ (that kiddies, what we used to call them back in the days before Internet) and none of them allowed me the freedom to communicate with them in ways that are natural to me.
So the next time you donâ€™t want to forget a special date, tell Sandy, just donâ€™t forget to tell your significant other that sheâ€™s just a program.
My name is Cal Evans and I am your sixty second tech.
