TMC CEO Rich Tehrani said, "Much thanks goes to all of TMC's readers as well as our sponsors, attendees, partners, vendors who supply us decorating services, audio/visual, etc and of course the tireless TMC team who works around the clock to over-deliver for customers.

Adtran, IBM, Apple Blow Out Earnings

January 19, 2011

ITEXPO gold sponsor and TMC Global Online Community customer Adtran just announced blowout earnings – fourth quarter profit doubled and sales grew 33%. Net income was $35.96 million or $0.56 per share. Broadband growth was 75% over the previous year led by sales of the Total Access 5000 platform while internetworking grew 37% and optical grew 24%.

Some of this growth was likely due to the Government’s Broadband Stimulus rollout but the declaration of a 9 cent per share dividend shows there is strong confidence that the company sees a bright future even as the program has ended.

gHome Improves Google Voice

January 18, 2011

Last week, TMCnet’s Charles West broke the news regarding TELTUB introducing gHome which links up with your Google Voice account as well as Facebook to allow $5/month calling after a free trial. Yesterday, TMCnet’s Tom Keating reviewed the gHome service with a SIP softphone from Ekiga and he was very happy with the fact that using iHome you can get all the Google Voice features and use any SIP device. And if you’ve seen how many SIP devices Tom has here at TMC HQ, you’d understand the reason for his happiness.

Tom’s review is extremely detailed and worth a read… In it for example, he explains how you can integrate the service with your iPhone.
