Google Voice invites for students

Great news out of Mountain View for students today. Google is prioritizing Google Voice invites for college students to help with keeping in touch on a college budget. Now parents everywhere will be able to keep in touch with (read: harrass) their children without long distance phone charges (do people even still pay those?), and students will have free text messaging, plus voicemail transcripts and all the other bells and whistles.

All you need is an email address ending in ".edu," and you will have your invite within 24 hours. Go to google.com/voice/students to get your invite. [Google Voice Blog]
