(I wrote this originally over a year ago for Petrula Vrontikis under ‘design heroes’ in a design forum called “Paying Your Dues Without Selling Your Soul” . The links are broken, so I’m posting so designs students can access the article!)
UPDATE 1/2507: I’ve been using Jott now for about a week and am amazed at its accuracy – especially with names and spelling of certain words. I started to get curious – it was too good to be true. So I did a search and found the following from an inquiry made by another curious blogger, Nitin. Here is the response she got from John Pollard, Jott’s CEO:

Today I opted to follow the Apple keynote via mobile web while driving into the office. Along with the constantly updated ‘live’ blog coverage, my phone was inundated by Twitter SMS’s from industry friends. Comments such as “anyone want a TREO 650 – cheap?” and “so are people drinking heavily at CES?” came in quickly during the session. But the buzz is clear – the much anticipated iPhone is a HUGE hit. Even with the 6-month delay, many are poised to switch over to Cingular and to delay buying any new devices until they can get their hands on the new device.
