Thick as Pea Soup

November 16, 2010

On my way to the Dialogic Connections 2010 event in Budapest, Hungary, I was delayed on my outbound flight and as a result missed my connection. American Airlines did an amazing job finding me on the way to the connecting flight and giving me tickets for a future flight - in case I didn't make the connection.

Sure enough there was no way to make the flight so I have been working here at Heathrow Airport for many hours and have gone through and cleaned up about 2,500 emails so far.

The picture gives you an idea of why my flight has been delayed - the fog is pretty thick and its times like this I'm very glad that RADAR was invented.

It isn’t often I start a product briefing with a Twitter feed – but when I spoke with Chuck Dietrich, CEO of SlideRocket we started out by looking at a live feed of Tweets describing how awful PowerPoint is. And while the idea isn’t new – after all, death by PowerPoint (Tweet stream) has been used for ages, many people who use the program often know there has to be a better way. And this is the exact area where SlideRocket focuses. But more on that later.

Microsoft Lync Server 2010 Impresses

November 14, 2010

TMC’s Tom Keating reported the fact that Microsoft OCS will be called Lync going forward and the name is much more conducive as a Skype alternative as asking someone to Lync you sounds much better than asking them to OCS you. Tom and I recently went to Manhattan with a group of analysts and other media to get a demo of the system at Microsoft's Technology center and put it through its paces. We had a chance to see about a dozen or more machines with various endpoints and spent time listening to Jamie Stark the Senior Product Manager walk us through what this new release will do for customers.

Ixia Shows Testing Not a Bad Place to be

November 13, 2010

The tech and communications markets have been generally stable and if anything a beacon of light in the turbulent waters of the general global economy. Specifically though the testing market is doing fairly well – if you are in the right segments of course. Let’s just say circuit switched testing isn’t going to be a hotbed of growth anytime soon.

One of the players in the market Ixia, has been aggressively consolidating the space and looking to become very well-rounded in the last few years acquiring the Catapult and Agilent N2X Data Line.
