I was recently pointed at Phonewords, a Mac OS X Cocoa application for discovering words hidden in your phone number(s). It’s a fun little program—the free version will give you up to ten words, and for $10 you can register and have it give you every word it can find.
It also comes with an address book plugin that allows you to generate and select phonewords from within your address book. (There’s even a demo movie that shows off this feature).
The sad news is that my phone number doesn’t work out to anything meaningful. My cell-phone number at least gave me something memorable. But whether you get anything meaningful or not, it’s still a fun app to play with.
