Today, though, we’re talking about about when rain, weather, and text messages converge: Umbrella Today. Although slightly faulty, (only a 50% success rate, thus far) I enjoy the thought and practice of somebody else watching the weather report for me and telling me (at a time of my choice) via text message if I need an umbrella or not.
Umbrella Today –> Enter Zip Code –> Enter Cell Number –> Never watch The Weather Channel again.
I’m pretty sure that they won’t tell me when I need an umbrella for snowstorms – but still a cool idea.
If you have text messages to spare – I recommend testing this service out, because THIS is the future.
