How often have you been in this situation: you’re running late and frantically trying to get to a meeting or appointment. You need to focus on getting there, but of course, you’re getting TXT messages and e-mails asking: "Where R U?" or "Wn wil U B here?". Naturally, you have to reply which only interferes all the more with your hectic effort of arriving as quickly as possible.
If you have a GPS device and smartphone or GPS in your smartphone, Oops I’m Late might come in handy. Based on your location and the settings you provide for the appointment, this service will contact your attendees with updates on your location so you don’t have to. It’s too rich for my blood at $69 and $99 for the Standard and Professional versions respectively, but there is a free three-day trial of the less expensive version. Maybe I’ll give it a 72-hour workout at the next CES in January since I think I was late for everything I scheduled last year.
