I was always the guy people called if they had a name, number, address, or picture and they wanted to fill in the blanks. Ever since I was a kid I’ve just been good at it – really good…

As technology improves, it’s insane at how fast I am now able to “fill in the blanks” – and I’ll tell ya what, this iPhone is the best tool I’ve ever had…

I came across a job posting that just had a phone number. I picked up the iPhone and used the “Reverse Phone Lookup” feature in the free “White Pages” app, within seconds I had the company name, address, and the owners name and address. From there I was able to find the company website, email adress, you name it…

What use to take a week now takes 5 minutes – I also emailed and left a message on their answering machine within that same 5 minutes…

Pretty insane! All from one phone number…
