Connect with Middle East and Asia News, Partners, and Customers

July 19, 2010

Take advantage of the excellent news sites in the East. We've got the best of the best here in the West like http://www.tmcnet.com ... also RCR Wireless, Fierce, TechCrunch, etc., but what about the other billions of people, services, investors, partners, customers, and other organizations in the East who would love to do business with you. None of these have religious or radical undertones unless you call merging, buy-outs, hiring professionals, and new business development radical?

Some that I recommend:

New Nettalk DUO Device Connects to Router or Computer

July 14, 2010

The DUO carries on the capability of being the only device in the world flexible enough to connect directly to your router's internet connection OR through your computer? 

Techistan reports on it and will soon offer a product review. Nettalk offers unlimited outgoing calls to USA and Canada  at $69.95 the first year including the DUO device. The second year is $29.95 ...

That breaks down to $2.50 per month for free nationwide calling throughout the USA and Canada plus all of our other calling features without monthly phone bills and contracts. 

Why would anyone want to use a "home phone" or a "business phone" that is not a cell phone or on a PBX like this? There are millions.

Venezuelan Expat VoIP Startup and a Canadian ISP with a Vision Merge

Download the audio podcast to your mp3 player, netbook, Droid, iPhone or whatever you use and listen too! It's on iTunes too.

Suzanne Bowen: Today we have with us the President of AstraQom Jonathan Sowah and also Max Glucksmann who is the new Chief Technical Officer. Welcome to both of you.

Which Asterisk Server Provider Do You Choose?

July 8, 2010

Yesterday, one friend, a guy whose clients are musicians in the USA and around the world. He does video, PR, and social networking training with and for them. He asked me if I would connect him to different Asterisk Server Providers because he needs that.

I used Facebook email to introduce him to each of them because there I am connected with around 2000 or so (slow accumulation of wonderful, quality, organically-grown relationships since early 2006) friends, most of them some how related to telecommunications.

Here are the responses he received from each and so I was wondering if you were the Musician PR guy, which answer gives you the best first impression? What are the pros and cons of each?



What Do Hairpinning and The Shining Have to do with VoIP?

July 7, 2010

I was remembering my mother in the 60s when she would wet her hair, curl small areas and hair pin in place. When it dried and she combed it out, she looked like an angel. But hairpinning is a term in voice over Internet (IP communications). It is the process of returning a message from a beginning endpoint back in the direction it came from.
