Stories of Interest

June 8, 2006



Here are recent stories of interest. My favorite has to be Survey: IPods More Popular Than Beer followed by QUALCOMM's VoIP news and of course how often do I get to talk about JFK. The VoiceGenie news is old but the deal is closed and Google's spreadsheet news is analyzed in some detail.

RIM Vs. Visto

May 1, 2006

Blackberry maker Research in Motion must have incorporated on Friday the 13th because they seem to continually be in the spotlight for patent infringement problems. This time it isn't NTP but Visto who wants (take a wild guess) an injunction and monetary damages.

Here is a quote from Tom Keating's blog.

"Friday's sweeping decision against Seven Networks validates our claims that Visto's intellectual property serves as the basis for this industry's birth," said Brian Bogosian, Visto's Chairman, President and CEO. "There was no ambiguity in the jury's decision.  Likewise we believe that RIM's infringement of Visto's technology will be halted. 



TMCnet breaks One Million Unique Visitors

May 1, 2006

I just landed and checked e-mail and one of the first messages I saw is that TMCnet broke one million filtered unique visitors in the month of April 2006.

I was really hoping April would be the month we reached this goal.

I have to thank you once again for visiting TMCnet and helping us achieve this goal. By the way the official number is 1,053,840.

We have two more goals. One is Alexa of 1,000 -- which would put TMCnet in the top 1,000 sites in the entire world. We are currently ranked 1,387 so we are close.





940,000 Unique Visitors

Inter-Tel 7000

April 20, 2006


Industry analyst and telecom veteran Mark Ricca says “Inter-Tel has done a masterful job in developing a platform that is being designed to successfully leverage advanced IP technology to provide a rich, intuitive feature set that can be an asset to any business” What is that has Mark so excited ?? The Inter-Tel 7000 of course.

Scaling up to 2,500 users per site, the Inter-Tel 7000 is designed to be a pure, standards-based communications platform utilizing SIP technology at its core. The platform also is designed to be redundant and secure, and to provide easy-to-use interfaces for remote management and configuration.

I can safely say I have never ever seen a release with so much analyst representation. It seems the analysts love Inter-Tel and especially the 7000.
