Broadsoft CEO Michael Tessler to Keynote StartupCamp6 at ITEXPO

September 25, 2012

While many of us take IP-based communications for granted, it is worth pointing out the market has gone through tremendous turmoil to get to where it is today. If you look back, 15 years ago communications service was provided by a handful of companies – the incumbents who are referred to in the US as RBOCs or ILECs and PTTs in many other parts of the world. Today there is a thriving ecosystem of competition with new entrants like Vonage and the cablecos which has been enabled by a handful of companies who had the foresight to make the important building-blocks which allowed communications to leave proprietary systems and leap to Intern Protocol.

One such company is Broadsoft and its CEO, Michael Tessler has been
at the helm for 14 years.

iPhone 5 Screen Not Wider, Brighter Instead

September 25, 2012

I may be the most vociferous person out there saying the iPhone 5 should be wider than it is but just because Apple decided to "Think Different" it doesn't mean the screen on its new flagship phone isn't much better than its replacement.
According to Displaymate, the iPhone 5 screen is far superior to just about anything else on the market when it comes to accurately displaying colors and minimizing screen refection. Specifically the company says:

Screen Reflectance on the iPhone 5 has decreased substantially – the iPhone 4 has 52 percent brighter reflections than the iPhone 5. This means you won’t be distracted as much by reflections that appear on the screen. The iPhone 5 has among the lowest Reflectance values we have ever measured on a Mobile device.

The iPhone 5 has the highest Contrast Rating for High Ambient Light for any Mobile device we have ever tested, and it’s 57 percent higher than the iPhone 4.

Business Insider: Super WiFi a Billion Dollar Market

September 4, 2012

I read with interest news from the Business Insider touting the Super WiFi Market as a huge thing for 2013. I agree of course since TMC and its partner Crossfire Media have been running the Super WiFi Summit for a number of years now and it is growing nicely.

I have always believed white space technology has the potential to be the most disruptive technology ever. Think about how IP communications disrupted telephony and imagine Super WiFi doing the same thing for wireless data. Of course the technologies in my comparisons are very different but the disruption potential is similar.

Dialogic: The Disruptor Combats Disruption

August 30, 2012

Perhaps nothing has disrupted communications more than Dialogic innovations. This post shows how they are reacting to disruption they initiated

Disruption is not a new concept. We all get that Amazon disrupted Circuit City, the advent of the MP3 reduced sales of CDs and digital photography wreaked havoc on filmmakers like Kodak.

New Microsoft Logo Responds to Apple

August 23, 2012

Ouch! What a week. Both Dell and HP stocks are getting hammered because they are losing share to Apple. You could make the argument that Microsoft has a reputation which doesn’t resonate with the newer generation or that they don’t have an OS which is as easy to use and fun as iOS or that they aren’t integrating their hardware and software into a single slick package or that they don’t have retail stores.

As of today however, they have altered their behavior to correct each of the above issues because after 25 years the company has a new logo.
 

Let’s now examine the design.

Connecticut DMV Uses Smartphones

June 7, 2012

I am sitting here at the Connecticut DMV and while standing in line I was thrilled to see an employee with a smartphone and printer approach me and give me a "reservation #" so I could then wait at the next area. I am not sure if the wait has decreased but at least I am sitting and working.

I must say though I am never comfortable coming to the DMV. The signage is terrible - sure it has improved over the years but I ended up in the wrong line for a while.
