BBC on Youtube; SimulScribe Voice-to-SMS; Sportsvite new look

BBC talks with Google: While talks with CBS and Viacom have fallen apart in the last couple of days, Youtube teams continues with the deal making process. According to news reports, BBC is talking with Google to make available its content on Youtube. No details have emerged in regards which content will be made available.

SimulScribe: I don’t think converting voicemail to text market is big enough to support another startup. Nevertheless SimulScribe is planning to take on reQall, Jott, and Spinvox, with its new service that converts voicemail to text and sends it out as SMS your mobile. SimulScribe is pretty much decided about its monetization plans. The service comes free for 7 days, and thereafter costs $9.99/month for 40 messages. Feels pricey to me. 

Sportsvite: The sports social networking startup, which had raised $2 million last week, has gone live with major upgrades to the site. Changes seem to be related more to the UI brush-up side of things, and less on adding new core features. I am unimpressed.

    […] Well who are the other 4? SimulScribe, reQall, Jott, and Spinvox. That is a lot of choose from. I think I would stick with Callwave since I am already using their awesome Voicemail and SMS widgets that I had written about earlier. Only a bit of a problem here. I get lot of messages in Hindi, my native language ;)  Tags:Callwave, Mobile Voice textShare and Enjoy: […]
