Craigsnumber:: Auto expiring. FREE anonymous phone numbers for online safety.

Craigsnumber:: Auto expiring. FREE anonymous phone numbers for online safety.

Information about the site is almost non-available, the owner is not saying anything until their lawyer has given them the ok.

It allows a temporary number allocation that will re-direct to another number. You can then publish the Craigsnumber on listing sites (like Craigslist). After a time the number will expire.

Craigslist offer this now but for Email addresses, this adds the ability to publish an anonymous phone number too.

Numbers can be selected to expire after 1 hour, 1 day, 1 week and 1 month. You can pick an area code in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, New Jersey, New York, Pheonix, Salt Lake City, San Diego, San Francisco and Washington D.C.

You then get a number and extension which you can publish and will be redirected to your number (which you also enter).

Craigslist and Craigsnumber are unrelated.

Apple - QuickTime - Macworld 2007 Keynote

Well it would be nice to watch it, but "Due to exceptional demand" it's currently unavailable, all those journos trying to get a scoop on the iPhone, maybe a few potential customers too.

It seems Apple's share price has jumped 3% on the announcement.

Apple - iPhone

Apple have at least announced the iPhone, though it's not available as such - it's not even FCC certified, but that's probably deliberate as most preliminary phone data comes from people monitoring FCC certification submission documents.

Not available until Q4 in the UK.

It runs MacOS X, how close that is to MacOS X on the desktop is debatable, though there's no reason it cant run the Mach kernel and BSD OS on top. Swap the Aqua interface for a phone version.

It comes with Email, Browsing, Phone and iPod apps, then there's what look like Dashboard widgets for everything else (or maybe Leopard's equivalent). There's also Google maps pre-installed.

Quad band GSM/GPRS with EDGE support on Sprint. 4G and 8GB versions for $499 and $599 respectiviely.

3.5" widescreen which is touch sensitive, 320 x 480 resolution. Also accelerometers to sense which way around it is to align the screen in the right direction. It's also position sensitive so the screen and display are turned off when it's near your ear (i.e. when using as a normal phone).

It looks extremely stylish and it's bound to be the phone of 2007.

oqo

oqo have release the OQO model O2. It now has a VIA processor up to 1.5GHz, upto 1GB RAM and a 60GB disk.

The model O1 was a nice unit, but under powered, with only 512MB of RAM and a 30GB disk and a 1GHz Transmeta CPU.

It comes with Windows XP or Tablet edition 2005 and an option of Office 2007 Business Edition. It has WiFi (802.11a/b/g) and Bluetooth 2.0 and US customers have an option of a built-in EV-DO module with a Sprint contract. Customers who purchase now get a free upgrade to Vista later this year, though not all of Vista's premium features are supported (like Aero).

Maybe this unit will actually be useful.
