I’m excited

Try the Huffduffer Hotline

You can now listen to Huffduffer from your phone. I don't just mean that you can visit the website on your phone's browser (which you can do anyway); you can now call a number and talk to the Huffduffer Hotline.

You can call:

+1 202 600 8751 in the US,

+44 2035 142722 in the UK,

+990009369991482211 on Skype.

When the nice digital man on the other end picks up the phone and asks you want you want to hear, you can respond with “what’s new”, “what’s popular”, or say a tag like music, science, history, politics, technology, etc.

The script then fetches the latest files with that tag and will go through them with you one by one, asking “Would you like to hear... ?” followed by the title. If you don’t like the sound of it, just say no. When you find something you do want to hear, say yes. It will then start playing and you will be listening to Huffduffer down a telephone line.

Let me know if you like this feature. If it's popular, I'll need to upgrade to a professional account on Tropo (the service powering the Huffduffer Hotline) to ensure better performance.

Also, if anyone would like numbers for other country codes, let me know.
