Emergency SMS

August 6, 2005

One of my coworkers saw the second tower go down live on TV and suffice it to say was horrified and scared that his wife went down in the building. Thankfully she did not but there was a period of hours when he didn’t know if she was OK. Phone lines were often busy and people couldn’t communicate during this tragedy. The London bombings caused similar concerns among loved ones.

In response to the tragedies in London, one person decided to launch www.textOK.com – a solution that will allow users to let all their contacts know they are safe by sending just one text message.

CMP VoIP Developer Coverage

August 5, 2005

Here is another great article from TechWeb/Information Week titled VoIP is Just the Beginning which focuses on TMC’s VoIP Developer Conference. Here is an excerpt:

Intel’s Michael Stanford thinks voice is just “the first drop in the deluge” of applications for IP-enabled networks. And Digium’s Mark Spencer has an interesting toolkit for building IP telephony apps.

Perhaps that’s why the two were paired in the morning keynote session Thursday at the VoIP Developer Conference here, to spell out some of the ways developers, resellers and corporate users might take advantage of the power of IP-based networking.

As director of Intel’s VoIP strategy group, Stanford’s comments to the couple hundred attendees were definitely future-looking, particularly in the area of VoIP and other services over wireless broadband. One huge market about to emerge, Stanford said, is that of dual-mode phone handsets, which will seamlessly roam between cellular, Wi-Fi and WiMAX or other fixed-wireless broadband networks.

“The writing’s on the wall for wireline voice,” Stanford said, predicting that within 3 to 5 years, cellular services will “totally dominate” voice traffic.

Intelligent Design

August 4, 2005

I went to public school until fifth grade and at that point my parents decided to move me to a private Jewish school where I could learn Hebrew and religious teachings along with my secular education. The education I received was much better than public schools as my classes were smaller and there was a much greater culture of learning in the school. I also became religious at this school

The only thing that didn't sit well with me was dinosaurs. I couldn't figure out how the story of creation left out hundreds of millions of years of dinosaur evolving, eating each other and doing the sorts of things they do.

Epygi Labs

August 4, 2005

Epygi has been working with other companies as a design house. Expect to see a number of products designed by Epygi but rebadged by other companies.

So far they have developed a WiFi telephony phone and have designed a VoIP test platform for a semiconductor company. They are focusing their designs on the VoIP space and the new design company is called Epygi Labs at the moment. The name may change but for now that is the name

I have always been impressed with the features and cost/feature ratio of Epygi's products.
