Video is the Minitel Star

January 9, 2005

The French have always been an enigma to me. They go on strike around the clock, have a restricted work-week of 35 hours and they still do reasonably well financially as a country despite the fact that they have untold weeks of vacation at a time. I don't know how long you can keep up such a lackadaisical pace of work in a global economy but so far so good Something the French don't get credit for too often is the Minitel system which did some of the same things the Internet now does for many of us...

Are we one Step Closer to VoIPOD?

January 7, 2005

Here is a great story on the Motorola/Apple iPhone partnership. Interestingly the concept of a VoIPOD is getting closer but not in the way I intended. Service providers should be looking at the iPOD/iTunes model as how to sell bundled hardware and software and most importantly reduce churn. Problem is, this article (excerpt below) starts off by saying an angry Apple customer is suing because they cant use their iTunes software on other devices.
