Zultys MX30

April 30, 2005

I recently had a chance to meet with execs at Zultys in Silicon Valley to see what they are up to. This is a company that launched an IP PBX a few years ago while the rest of the market was hiding in the shadows of post-bubble bursting depression, Zultys decided to throw their hat in the ring at what seems to have been an ideal time. The company is now selling IP PBXs internationally and growing quickly in the US, Asia and other parts of the world. One part of the conversation that struck me was when I heard that Zultys is back in the IP phone business.

SERoutlookAccess

April 29, 2005

Probably the best product around that no one knows about is SERoutlookAccess. I love this handy utility but have a few caveats about it. Let’s start off by saying I have a mailbox on a busy server with about 500,000 e-mails on it and I receive up to or more than 1,000 e-mails daily. I live in Outlook so I need a powerful search utility.

I used LookOut for over a year and it was very helpful.

CruiseShoring

April 28, 2005

An interesting article from Forbes.com details a new sort of offshoring:


Why send software work to India when you can have it done on a cruise ship 3.1 miles off California?



Two San Diego entrepreneurs have come up with a very literal twist on offshoring software development jobs. This pair wants to get their hands on a 600-cabin cruise ship and park it off the coast of El Segundo, Calif., just over the 3-mile border that marks international waters. They'll pack the boat with engineers who will write code day and night.

Spitzer Spyware Suit

April 28, 2005

Whether you think Eliot Spitzer is doing a great job or you think he is overdoing it by suing what seems like a record number of companies... You have to put your hands together for his latest suit where he accuses Intermix Media of redirecting users to a number of sites owned by the company. Here is an excerpt from Yahoo News which has a really new and interesting interface BTW:

"Spyware and adware are more than an annoyance," Spitzer said. "These fraudulent programs foul machines, undermine productivity and in many cases frustrate consumers' efforts to remove them from their computers.
