Just Hurry Up and Die

During IT Expo this week in Austin, I participated in several panels and gave a couple of presentations. The subject areas were the usual suspects, hosted communications, SIP Trunking, Unified Communications, Communications as a Service, etc. But what really got...

The Invention of Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs changed the way we view computers and technology. Since his resignation I have heard him compared to Michelangelo, Edison and Ford. The accolades seem to increase in volume and intensity with each passing day. At first, I readily...

Once a darling of Wall Street, RIM has fallen from a market value of $83 billion to $15 billion in just a few years. Moreover, there is no end in sight to their market share loss. Even their hold on...

Every weekend I face the same challenge, coming up with another original recipe. This weekend I thought I was not going to make. In the refrigerator were a porterhouse steak, lump crab, bacon, and deli ham. Crab cakes were...

All You Can Eat Fettuccine

I didn't cook a lot this weekend as we decided to eat light on Friday and tried out a new restaurant on Saturday. Therefore, I knew that Sunday's dish had to be spot on as it, by default, would...

Further Broadband Penetration Deconstruction

Before I begin, I want to remind you that most of the numbers used for the subject for this week's blog come from the Rural Utilities Service (RUS), National Telecommunications Infrastructure Administration (NTIA), Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and National...
