3D and IPTV with or without Glasses

January 12, 2010

I spied the title of A. Michael Noll's "A 3D TV Bubble is emerging" and frankly, it sent me researching the web and thinking about my own fascination with 3D (or even 4D.

One Sunday late afternoon, I paid to see Avatar by myself. I liked it. I loved the aesthetics of the scenery, backgrounds, living creatures and the interesting appearances of the avatars. I thought the movie itself was predictable. I would rather watch the Matrix series or even Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs again and learn something new than to watch Avatar again.

The author of the article in my email stated that Sony seemed to be betting its future on 3D at the CES show.



Oh but T.38 Just Isn't Reliable!

December 28, 2009

My company works with thousands of IP communications companies, CLECs, incumbents, wireless operators and entrepreneurs from as many as 170 nations right now through our DIDX and Techistan services. Today I was able to peek at another interesting experiment with fax over IP. 

From a voip solution developer in the industry who helps DIDX buyers implement the DIDX API: "We just sent a 23 page fax, sent from a Comcast
landline to a Canadian number, received in one of our new wholesale client's servers through PRI.


Then we sent to a secondary PBX where the WebGUI is, via IAX.

Those are some of the area codes that a new DIDX seller will have available.

Mobile and Wireless to Take over IP Communications

December 16, 2009

Maybe not, but ...

On November 3, 2008

, I noted that out of five of my best girl friends, three had gotten rid of their landline phones. One was using Verizon on a Blackberry Curve. One was using T-Mobile. Another AT&T on a Nokia E61i like I was.

Will Friendster Trounce Facebook and MySpace?

December 10, 2009

On December 10, 2009, the Wall Street Journal published an article that "Malaysia-based MOL Global Pte. Ltd. has agreed to acquire all of Friendster Inc. ... MOL Global is an affiliate of unlisted MOL AccessPortal Berhad, a company that operates and develops payment systems. MOL's main shareholder is Berjaya Corp. (3395.KU) Chairman Vincent Tan"

Want to hear more?

Friendster aims to make other social networks such as MySpace, Facebook, Hi5, Orkut, and Tagged look like "a day at Grandma's knitting sweaters and doing word searches." It is more about "connecting smiles." 

I have a friend named Iris in Singapore who chatted with me on Google Talk about how much fun she thinks Friendster is.
