Slydial, another strategy in the game of Phone Tag...by Sybil Adelman Sage

There have always been ways of ducking uncomfortable confrontations, whether it was the easy blow-off, 'I'll call you during the week," or responding to a ringing phone by frantically asking an employee or family member to say you're not in.

This week Slydial was introduced, technology that takes personal protection to a new extreme, surpassing Caller I.D., e-mailing and text messaging to assure you're never forced to deal with another human being. Slydial lets you call a mobile phone and go straight to voice mail, eliminating the fear that the phone will be answered and involve conversation, as it was once designed to do.

Cell phones are providing other new features. Taking a cue from movie special effects, you can now add background traffic sounds when calling to say you're late. Surely someone is working on sounds to support the story that you're in an emergency room, being held at gunpoint or have been deployed to Iraq. We might anticipate award shows for this new artistic form.

Technology is eliminating all potentially sticky situations that could be caused by actually connecting on the phone. Breaking up with someone will be easier than ordering a pizza. Doctors can leave word on your cell phone that it has, indeed, caused a malignancy without having to hear your despair and take all that time to answer questions.

Where is this heading? Will Slydial lead to Slyski, where you appear to have come down a double black diamond trail? How about Slysex, where you can roll over and claim you're done?

How do I get access to Skydial? A web search so far has been fruitless

Not sure. Read about it on page 1 of the NY Times. Whom are you avoiding?
