Is Wow Mobile Doomed Already?

January 26, 2010



Peter Radizeski of RAD-INFO thinks Wow Mobile is doomed. To be fair, Peter is cynical but then again, he is right most of the time. In this case he thinks a MLM, get-rich scheme which sells mobile service has no chance -- especially when you consider the history of MVNO failure in the US. He has some great points...

Tools I Used at ITEXPO East 2010

January 26, 2010

I used a slew of technology at the show but two products are worth special mention. The first is the Flip Mino HD video recorder which excelled in low-light conditions and allowed me to take rapid and high-quality videos of the show. Thanks Cisco for providing me with this device.

In addition, I must say that without Verizon EVDO I would have been lost at this event and although thousands of people converged on the conference, the service allowed rapid uploads of multi-megabyte video files.

It is worth mentioning that many people commented that an iPhone was an obligatory accessory at the expo. In addition, I noticed many people standing near electrical outlets with thin white power cords which seemed way too short for adults.

So perhaps Verizon Wireless didn't see their network taxed too greatly by attendees.

Yes, there was wireless broadband but the WiFi literally choked during peak times.

January 21, 2010

Tom has been on a roll covering the news yesterday - here are some links to his posts with commentary from me. I have been meeting with many in the industry for the last two days and would love to have written more but time hasn't allowed for it. Thankfully I have been posting as many videos as I can and sending other videos which don't reside on this site to my Twitter followers at twitter.com/rtehrani.

Skype Takes Share, Upgrades iPhone App

January 19, 2010

Skype is now the largest provider of cross border communications in the world, by far according to a new report from TeleGeography. According to the research company, the rate of international calling has been growing at a steady compounded rate of 15% but in the last few years the slope has decreased as a result of the recession and of course, people switching to Skype.
