A control panel for your phone

One of the neat things about Jangl is that you get a control panel for your phone. It's like having your Outlook Contacts hard-wired into your phone. You can disable certain numbers temporarily, or you can permanently block a caller so they can never reach you again. And, you can do this for your home phone, your mobile phone, your Vonage line, whatever.

It's not hard to imagine where Jangl will go with this control panel. At this point, additional call management features are just a software update away. That's the beauty of a voice over IP (VOIP) calling platform. It gives nimble startups like Jangl the ability to deliver calling features that until now were only available from your carrier. The CEO, Michael Cerda, is speaking at Community Next tomorrow. If you have a chance to see it, you'll get a better feel for where all of this is going.
