These days, with all the new gadgets coming out every 3 months, it's refreshing to see innovative ideas such as this one; no gadgets required. Previously, when you wanted to record a phone call, you'd need expensive hardware and special connections to the handset. Unless you were a curious teenager like me who took apart your parents phone and wired in your APH tape recorder right into the wiring. It worked great, but you had to be careful not to touch anything when the phone rang. Those ringing bells sure packed a charge, but I digress. Anyway here comes the online internet service called Simple phone conversation recording. My twitter colleague posted an entry on this which I have pasted below with a link to the source. If you want to hear a sample of the service, use code 331894. It's my home phone outgoing message with me blabbering in French afterwards. So I'm weird, leave me alone. Hehehe
With no further ado, here's the Fred Head's column.
Record Phone Conversations

As the title suggests, this is an application that will let you record phone conversations. This can be done without any additional hardware and it's web-based, so there's nothing to download or install. All you have to do is call 877-395-3442 from your phone and follow the instructions.
The next call you make will be recorded. You will then be provided with a session code that you can use to retrieve the call.
This service is provided at no cost, the basic functionality of playing and recording phone conversations will remain free. Some premium features may be implemented at a later time.
Just in case you're wondering, all the recorded phone calls are stored on a secure server, you don't have to worry about the safety and privacy of what you record being compromised.
