IDEA OF THE DAY: This App Shows Who's Dominating A Phone Conversation

The idea: A iPhone app that monitors your phone calls to show who is dominating the conversation at intervals of one, two and five minutes.

Whose idea: Unperfekthaus (via BingBoing)

Why it’s brilliant: The Talk-o-Meter learns to separate between two voices and shows what percentage of time a speaker is talking in red and blue bars.

Speakers can take a glance at the meter as they talk — and then make any necessary adjustments. This is a great tool for business, and could also be helpful during conversations with your mother-in-law.
