PrivateLine Brings You the Power of Mobile Privacy with No Crowdsourcing

There are over 240 million smartphone users in North America. According to a recent post from YouMail, an estimated 2.74 billion robocalls occurred in November, 2017 alone (a 10% increase from the year before). Private Line hopes to change that for personal, or business use. And with most of us having a SMB, we can have separate phone numbers with filters acting like a personal assistant – finding out who is calling and why even before you take the call. What is Private Line PrivateLine is a personal call screener app for your mobile device. The service is brought to you by Shuffle Ventures – who launched Shuffle in 2015.

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSIt was a great Sunday at SXSW as I started at one of my favorite places in Guero’s and AllHat V. It once again was sponsored by Chevy. One thing you need when going to this event is a cowboy hat. My band hat for some reason did not make the trip, so I used the next best thing – the Horse head. I got to talk with some great people and make new connections. It was a fun time. I also learned about Horse Boy – a group that uses horses for children with Autism. They were letting people sit on top of the horses as the trainer got them on their hind legs. No – I didn’t get on a horse. From there I stopped by the Fast Company Grill to find out what was going on. They had...
