JibJab Budweiser

May 30, 2005

I received this comment (see below) on a past JibJab post I made a while ago. Apparently the blogger community is up in arms about JibJab selling out to Budweiser. Apparently JibJab promised not to.

My take? So they did.

LSI Logic

May 27, 2005

I recently had a chance to interview Ramesh Bhimarao the VoIP product Line Manager at LSI Logic on the future of VoIP development. LSI Logic is a leader in VoIP processors for wireless and wired applications and their products form the foundation of many of the next generation VoIP killer devices I am looking forward to seeing.

What trends are you seeing in VoIP development?

Voice over WiFi and VoIP integration with CPE devices such as routers and broadband modems are the definite trends we are seeing in the marketplace.

Is 2005 the best year for VoIP? 2006, etc?

Deployment will accelerate from now until 2008.

May 27th Communications and Technology Podcast

May 27, 2005

Lots of great stuff in the latest communications and technology podcast. I had to bow out but am upset that I did as this one seemed quite good. Hopefully I can participate in next week’s edition.

Cisco Galileo

Announced at Speech-World is Galileo from Cisco is a really cool product that allows speech access to e-mail and calendaring. For those of you that remember Wildfire, it is a similar concept but having the Cisco brand behind it should allow it to be more widely purchased and deployed.

With all the deaths of humans in the world I sometimes find it hard to worry about animals. Ethically I am torn to donating to human causes before animal ones. Still, I am a nature lover. I am certainly not someone you would consider green but I love all sorts of animals from fish to big cats.

Dave Hattey and SIPquest

May 27, 2005

Dave Hattey who has done a great job leading 3COM’s VoIP initiatives for years – and has spoken at TMC events in the past, has made the switch to SIPquest. The two companies are partners so they were familiar with each other before Hattey moved. I am not sure who may be taking his spot but Brian Allain just joined 3COM and could be the person who fills Hattey’s shoes. Allain has been in VoIP since the mid nineties and launched Avaya’s (Lucent at the time) foray into the IP PBX market .

TelTel Radio

May 27, 2005

Once you have a community of Internet telephony users the next step is to see what sorts of interesting things you can do with them like offer music and other audio content. TelTel, has done just this with their network of one million users – which they claim is the largest worldwide community of SIP p2p users. Similar to Skype, the company has software that works in a p2p fashion but where the two differ is that TelTel is SIP compatible meaning it is easily used with dozens if not hundreds of devices and third-party software endpoints.

Any media content provider can become a TelTel partner if they support SIP. Obviously there is huge competition from companies like the Microsoft and their Media Player, Real Networks and Apple QuickTime. But where this service can get interesting is in SIP device support allowing streaming to any device on the Net that is SIP compatible.

Will SIP become a conduit for audio programming?
