I'm sorry, I have to take this call.

Screenshots11full Ever been on a blind date and ten minutes into it wished for some sort of divine intervention to get you out of it? Well, I'm not sure if Steve Jobs is God, but a new iPhone application called Fake Calls will do the trick.

For $0.99, you can download the Fake Calls application that allows you to preprogram an incoming call at a designated time, from a designated person — it  even allows you to customize the wallpaper for the incoming call. So, if you're having a good time on the date, you can make a show of ignoring the call — however, if you want to make a fast exit, you can pretend the call is a work emergency and hit the road.

Feel guilty about lying? The makers of the Fake Calls app say they're donating part of the profits to charity — that should be enough to repair your karma.

And, oh, yes — the iPhone is STILL not in Vermont.

Happy Friday,
MM
