Most Innovative Product of 2006 - Adondo Personal Audio Link

by Michael E. Callahan aka Dr. File Finder


I've had numerous emails asking me, "If you could pick just oneprogram that was the best what would it be?" That was a very good and a very interesting question. I started giving it some seriousthought. In the process I decided that I would pick the product that Ithought was the most innovative in 2006. "Best" is kind ofa relative term. I've gone over all of the programs I looked at in2006 and I've come to my decision. I'm hoping to be able to do this eachyear as we move forward. I'm happy to announce my selection for "Most Innovative New Product." That productis:

Personal Audio Link by Adondo Corporation

Personal Audio Link, or PAL, is a fascinating program thatputs you in control of all the information on your computer and more! Itwas selected as a Tucows "Must HaveApplication" and received the "Editor's Choice Award"for excellence. Let me tell you a bit about it.

All of us have lots of information to deal with. The informationcomes to us in a variety of ways. Email, cell phones, newspapers, pagers,instant messages, blogs, RSS feeds, podcasts, online videos, and more.It can be overwhelming just trying to keep up and keep track of it all.It can also be a challenge to access all of it easily. That'swhere Personal Audio Link comes in. Really a brilliant idea.

PAL lets you obtain information on your computer either directlyor from any phone. Any phone! You can download a trialcopy and install it on your PC. You train PAL to recognize your voice,which takes only a few minutes. From that point on you have access toall the information you need!

From sitting in front of my computer OR from a thousand milesaway calling in from my cell phone I can have Adondo Personal AudioLink do things like:

  • Read my email to me
  • Send audio email replies
  • Tell me the weather in Denver
  • Tell me the traffic on I-25 North or I-70 West
  • Read me CNN the news
  • Read me my favorite blogs
  • Tell me the weather in Boston
  • Tell me my upcoming appointments
  • Call any contact in my address book
  • Tell me what Microsoft or Google are trading at
  • And lots, lots, more!

I can drive in my car and deal with email, check on appointments, andget the latest news all without touching a button. I call my PersonalAudio Link "Friday" after the character in Robinson Crusoe.I'm sitting here at my desk, working on this article, while I have"Friday" reading me the latest news about the Colorado blizzard. NextI'm going to have "him" (it can have a male or female voice) tell meabout the traffic situation in Denver. The ability to do this while I'mworking or while I'm driving or while I'm on vacation is nothing shortof amazing! It helps me to get more things done. It makes me muchmore efficient.

Personal Audio Link by Adondo Corporation is a truly innovative product. Many products find a way to do something"better", but PAL found a way to do something that wasn'tbeing done. Now that's innovative.

The latest version of PAL lets you assign various functions tothe keys on your phone. This makes PAL even easier to use andgives it extra functionality. Assign the keys based on the thingsyou use most. Slick.

Summing It Up

I look at a lot of software every day and I've been doing it fornearly thirty years. I see lots of good programs and some excellentones. Only very rarely do I get to see software that is trulyinnovative. Things like PKZIP in 1986, Envision Publisher in1992, and ZipMagic in 1995, these were all innovative products.Each broke new ground. In my opinion, Personal Audio Link byAdondo Corporation falls into this select group. It's innovative,it's smart, and it gives you a new way to access all ofthe information on your computer. Email, contacts, blogs, news, sports,weather, and so much more. While sitting at your desk or fromthousands of miles away, it doesn't matter. This is software thatmakes life easier. It is truly the "Most InnovativeNew Product" of 2006. Try it and see!



That brings me to a close. I hope you'll take the time to give Adondo Personal Audio Link a try. It gives you a new way to interact with your computer to get the information you need. It saves you time and makes you more efficient. Check it out!
