Startup Jangl offers disposable phone numbers
SiliconBeat reports enthusiastically on the launch of Jangl, a voice-over-Internet-Protocol startup with a service that allows users to create anonymous, "disposable" phone numbers. The phone numbers, which forward to a customer's main phone number, make sense for project-specific uses, such as posting contact information in classified ads or giving one's "digits" to a passing acquaintance. Even better, the service borrows an antispam technique from email, forcing all first-time callers to be approved before their calls can go through. Initially skeptical, SiliconBeat's Michael Bazeley concludes that Jangl may be "onto something." But wait, there's more: Jangl also allows users to send images and music to mobile-phone callers. Press one to hear "Ricky Don't Lose that Number."
