Can't Miss SIP Tutorial at ITEXPO

January 11, 2010

One of the most trusted names in communications Carl Ford - was explaining to me recently how the upcoming tutorial on SIP at ITEXPO, January 20-22, 2010 in Miami will be the best session on SIP - anywhere. He mentioned it in passing and then I realized - wait a minute - I didn't even blog it. Am I being unfaithful to my readers? Well just in case, I decided to blog away.

Tech Rock Star Jamie Siminoff Keynotes Startup Camp Telephony

January 11, 2010

Jamie Siminoff is someone I have great admiration for... He launched a company called SimulScribe which later became PhoneTag and what it did was transcribe your voicemails and send them via email. As far as I am concerned voicemail is useless without receiving it transcribed in an email with an attached MP3 file. You mean you still listen to your voicemails??

Google Breaks Cardinal Supplier Rule

January 11, 2010

There is an unwritten rule that companies who compete with their customers are inviting trouble. When companies break this rule, generally their competition will use this information against them when there is a bid on the table. Over time, when you break this rule, it bites you in the rear.

Companies like Intel, who have a dominant position in the market, are generally able to bend or break these principles to some degree but for most others, you know where to draw the line.

Nexus One: A $350 Penalty so you can Access AT&T?

January 7, 2010

Two years ago I discussed how Sharper Image could change the way cellphones are sold in the US - they offered an array of unlocked phones and the retailer seemed like the right kind of outlet to make the change to open wireless communications in the US happen. I wondered if this would start a trend saying:

There may be an opportunity for the company as currently if you want to buy an unlocked phone you have to search the Internet. Sharper Image could become the "unlocked phone store" if they play their cards right.

Internet Radio Threat to Satellite Continues

January 7, 2010

Back in November of 2007 I wrote about the threat of Pandora and

other Internet radio companies to satellite radio. Back then, AT&T was smart to link up with the streaming radio company to offer a service for $8.99/month.

Now Pandora is at it again and will be integrated into a $1,200 automotive navigation system from Pioneer.

Still, I have to wonder exactly what this device does to make it worth $1,200.
