Musings

Tech Musings: Apple, Cisco, Blackberry

January 11, 2007

I am musing a bit later into the day and as I was pressed for time – At this hour it is completely plausible that I may not even muse effectively. If you find today’s musings substandard, please come back tomorrow where the musing will start all over again. This is of course unless I get another case of muser’s block.   Yes, writers block can be very real. Sometimes people (writers, bloggers, etc) miss deadlines or just make mistakes such as forgetting to muse before noon.

Musings: Apple, AT&T, Zultys, M&Ms, Ubiquity, Avaya

January 12, 2007

While the world is going iPhone lawsuit crazy (posts from Andy, Jeff and Aswath) there is a bit of news that seems to be under the radar but crucial. What is it you ask? It is that eBay/PayPal will start distributing key fobs with random security codes. The goal will be to increase security.

Musings: HP, Paragon Wireless, BridgePort Networks

February 13, 2007

This week has seen more announcements than any in recent memory. 3GSM is probably the main culprit here but beyond this international wireless event there are other tech related news stories worth discussing in today’s musings.   One of the most interesting applications of technology recently has to be the case of the two teenage girls in Trenton, Ohio who posted a fake snow day notice on the school’s website. The two Edgewood High School students, whose names were not released, were charged in juvenile court on Friday and face expulsion. One of the girls, 16, was charged with delinquency by unauthorized use of a computer (doesn’t this seem like a made up name of a crime?) and by reason of records tampering.

Musings for March 7, 2007

March 7, 2007

Now it has been a while since I was in the mood to muse as it were but when the muse mood strikes it is best to be by a keyboard so you can ponder the ramifications of world events.   In Turkey -- a world away from where I am today, it seems YouTube has been blocked because a video contained on the site is defamatory to the founder of modern Turkey. In the interest of keeping my loyal readers in the country I will refrain from mentioning his name in any fashion at all.   Unfortunately the court probably is not aware there is something new and interesting called the internet where the video can be downloaded from millions or even billions of other sites. Perhaps the thing to do is emulate neighboring Iran and just slow internet access so video is not even able to be seen.   It seems some countries are enamored to be thought of as third world countries by everyone else.   Again this gets us back to a blog entry I wrote back in December of last year titled YouTube as Political Barometer which discusses how we can gain valuable insight about a country depending on how they view YouTube.   If you made it this far you are probably in disbelief or laughing which brings us to the next topic of today’s musings – emotions. It seems technology has advanced to the point where you can now use your brain to play games with your emotions.

TMCnet Sets Page View Record

MyTMCnet

March 21, 2007

Thanks to readers like you, TMCnet has been blessed with 1-2 million unique visitors every month and last month over 20 million pages were viewed on this site. We are truly grateful to our readers, sponsors and advertisers who support this site and all other TMC products and initiatives.   Of course hats off to the TMC team who nurtures the development of our beloved communications and technology portal.   At TMC we are always innovating. We always look for ways to serve our audience better.   A number of months back an advertiser came to us and said according to his research, TMCnet is not only the top communications site in the US but the world.   The interesting part of this conversation is it seemed that not everyone knew just how popular TMCnet was outside of the US.   To rectify this situation and moreover to make it easier for those people around the world to get access to news pertaining to their interests, we embarked on developing TMCnet for various continents.   But instead of hard coding this project, we decided it would be better to build a framework which was customizable.   This would take longer but what it would allow is a fully customizable news portal by specific topic or even specific keywords.   Once this project dubbed myTMCnet was launched and working we could then easily extend it to be continent specific, country specific, topic specific, etc.   Yesterday we rolled out the beta of myTMCnet.   TMCnet has 3,000-4,000 articles, press releases and other content pouring into it daily.   We have now given the world a custom interface so they can see this news in any way they choose.   For example, if you are interested in IMS news you can add a custom box dedicated to IMS. Or perhaps you want to track SanSay or Avaya or unified communications.   It doesn’t matter.   I have found MyTMCnet is an invaluable competitive research tool allowing me to see what they are up to.

TMCnet Goes Twitter

July 4, 2007

It seems like if you are under 18 you spend a good deal of time twittering on well – Twitter. Since my typical reader is above 18 you may not be aware that Twitter is a service allowing you to send and receive messages via SMS on cell phones. People spend hours letting their friends know (in excruciating detail sometimes) about all aspects of their life. “I am going to have lunch.” “I am having a snack.” “I am sick,” are some of the things you may see while twittering.   But if you get sick of twittering with friends and are interested in using Twitter to keep up with the latest (and best of course) communications and technology news and analysis, be sure to check twitter.com/tmcnet.
