Google Voice Integration

My Firefox browser opens all my default tabs when it opens and gives me quick access to all my core web applications. One of these is Google Voice.

I am still working Google Voice into my overall platform. It isn't quite there.

Today I was thinking about some good uses for it beyond receiving calls. I was mourning the deactivation of Google Notebook and thinking that Google Voice would make a good replacement for my note taking. Make it more verbal. I would like to see Google Voice to be integrated through my Google Office. When editing a document I could leave audio notes. When creating or editing a calendar event I could leave audio notes. These notes would show up in my Google Voice account and I could organize or maybe they would automatically organize by Google Application?

I have a Google Voice widget on my web site so people could call me. Seems like Google could release a simple widget I could use and call myself. Then I could leave messages, notes, and general dictation. These audio notes would then be transcribed and available as part of my overall communication stream.

Just some random thoughts of how I see Google Voice growing and evolving as part of my core platform.
