I received this excellent e-mail today regarding VoIP regulation.

July 17, 2004

It was too good not to post. Re: VoIP Regulation is NOT a Deal-Breaker for VoIP Adoption By Rich Tehrani, Group Editor-in-Chief, INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine. Dear Mr. Tehrani: I couldn't help but call my high school son and daughter to show them this shameless propaganda for your advertisers. Your assertion that we, the end users, should focus mostly on features and capabilities rather than cost does a huge disservice to even your primary audience (the telecom vendor community). Do you not realize that regulatory red tape and parasitic fees/ taxes limit the entire market? One glance at DSL in the US vs. elsewhere in the world should convince you.

Microsoft Makes use of largest Human Organ

June 28, 2004

My fifth grade science teacher taught us that skin was the largest organ in our body. Finally, us geeks will be able to use all that space for something useful. Radio Shack sells a really interesting home-automation system named Plug 'n Power that uses your in-home wiring as a bus allowing you to control electrical devices throughout the house. Basically, the system piggybacks frequencies on top of the signal in your wires to communicate between devices. Microsoft takes this one step further by allowing you to use your skin as the bus. In a recent patent filing, number 6,754,472 they mention that a variety of devices have redundancy or in other words, watches, radios, pagers and PDAs all need speakers.
