Try It and Buy It...Not!

SIP...It's the RAGE Part II or Who's Buying?

Always an interesting question. What we know is that no vertical market is superseding another in the adoption of VoIP/SIP.  Analysts in particular look for some type of vertical trend. They find it difficult to believe that a given...

SIP is the RAGE

Over the weekend, I received an email from a VAR with the tag line "SIP is the RAGE". Wow!  Additionally, he had read my blog. (Sometimes as I type these up, I think the only people reading this are...

Wash the FUD out of Your Mouth

So what dramatic thing did I do? I looked at the audience and exclaimed, "Bull____!" Okay, I was braver then and there were no children in the audience. But it worked. Now I had their attention. I pressed home...

Pork Rib Roast and FUD
