TECH FOR THE PASSIVE AGGRESSIVE.

"Giving softly-spoken consumers everywhere a better chance of getting themselves heard, the Talk-o-Meter is a chat-monitoring iPhone app designed to show conversation dominators the error of their overbearing ways. After a brief calibration period to identify the voices in a dialogue, the app recognises who is speaking and keeps track of each person's talk time. The results are displayed as red and blue bars indicating the balance. Speakers can then glance at the Talk-o-Meter as they converse, and—the designer hopes—make adjustments if they are monopolising the discussion."
