In the world of advertising the expression commonly used is “perception is reality.” Moreover companies are often branded by customers. If I say IBM, you will say mainframes. Oracle? Databases.   Sometimes I feel it is my job to help uncover companies who have a broader portfolio of products than is generally appreciated.

Voxalot

November 3, 2007

Obviously getting into the VoIP provider space is a tough proposition with all the competition out there. An interesting approach to entering the space is to partner with other providers. Certainly this is not a totally new concept but I thought it was impressive to hear Voxalot allows connectivity to 2,000 other SIP service providers.   I wonder if the next logical step in service provider evolution is to do what the banks did when ATMs became popular. As you may recall, in the early days you could only use an ATM card at your own bank.

NBA on your Cell

November 2, 2007

Say you are in a meeting – like the one I am in now (shh! ), and you feel you are out of the basketball loop… What do you do? Well one option is to take out your cell phone and hide it under the table and tune to Verizon Wireless V CAST Mobile TV.   There are more than 70 games you could be watching under the table, right now!   If there is a downside, it is that you can only access the service in 40 cities including some of the larger ones, Atlanta, Chicago, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New York and Philadelphia.   The question worth asking of course is why Vegas… Every time I go to a Vegas hotel, there seem to be more flat screen TVs with basketball games than even Best Buy! I guess Vegas citizens don’t want to miss these important games when they are in the rest room.

Verizon, Google Discuss Partnership

October 30, 2007

How does Verizon fight back against the Apple iPhone and AT&T network? Simple… They call Google and discuss partnering with the world’s leading search engine in order to come up with a device which will potentially take some share from Apple.   The Wall Street Journal is reporting that talks are underway but nothing solid has come of them.   It seems that Verizon will be responsible for hardware and Google will supply the software. In addition there will be an advertising split of some sort.   According to the WSJ, one concern held by Verizon is whether the device will be secure enough.   My take? This device will have to be as slick and integrated as the iPhone to make any sort of dent in the market.
