If you know that someone is in a crowded theater and you want to
get an urgent message to them, you will not stand at the door and
yell "Gary! You're needed for surgery!!!!". You will dicretely sneak
and try to whisper it into their ear.
Why can't we have the same thing for phones? Before
you send or
before you dial, you as the caller should have an option to pick the
notification or ring volume.
Of course the only way this will ever take off if the ultimate
is with the callee. The callee will have the ability to set the
- unknown caller maximum notification volume
- specific caller maximum notification volume override (ie I let
particular scream at me, but others have to whisper)
This doesn't have to be limited to volume, sometimes I miss
important phone calls and both me and the caller wish that it
happen. In those cases, it might warrant electro-shock notification
other more attention grabbing methods.
