I’ve just come across the parking service RingGo.com. It’s a way of buying parking tickets by phone: when you park your car in a carpark which uses the service, you can ring the service, key in the number of the car park and how many hours’ parking you want and bingo… er … ringo: You’ve just paid for your parking. How cool is this?
I love it when the future works. I love it that I can find out when my next bus is coming by texting the number of the bus stop to the bus company. I love it that I can use my phone for emails. I love it when my husband texts me a photo of the view from the top of the mountain he’s climbed. I love it when people update Facebook via Twitter from their Blackberry. I love it when an online service asks you to validate your purchase by texting your pin. Oh that doesn’t happen yet. I loved Mondex. I even love my Oyster card, and that’s not a phrase you see very often.
But today is cheerfulness-day, so today I’m excited about the fact that the future’s here and I paid for my parking without any of that clunky money stuff.
