Applications Today Do Not Work in Isolation Says Venky

July 14, 2011

How do we best meet people and organizations online and in person to do business with? As my readership and networks know, my favorite ways are via social networking sites and face to face conferences, exhibitions, and meet-ups. I was desperately searching via Twitter, Linkedin and Facebook for as many people as possible who were participating in CommunicAsia 2011 because once I arrived in Singapore, I wanted a full agenda of promising opportunities. One of the first to reply was Venky from Plivo which resulted in plans to record an audio interview for you to eavesdrop on podcast.

CommunicAsia was great except for one unfortunately embarrassing incident in the press lounge, but I've got enough integrity ...

Almost every morning between 4 and 6 AM, I read, listen and watch GigaOm, TechCrunch, TMC, RCR Wireless and Voip, Geekspeak.org, and various blogs and video channels. After reading a post by Stacey Higginbotham at GigaOm, I asked entrepeneur and business owner Darren Schreiber to let me record a talk with him that I could share with the public online.

A Song for Unified Communications

May 14, 2011


Okay, so you could call it a Somewhere over the Rainbow spoof, but I was playing around with writing lyrics for different companies' marketing and advertising projects including our own (Super Technologies, DIDX, Techistan, etc.) and a friend of mine Jamesopera said he would sing this one.

You'll also see guys and gals from different companies in the video who have something to do with Unified Communications ... which is the topic of this video: Avaya, TMC, D2 Technologies, Inc., Paetec, Telefonica, Comtel-Networks, Nokia, Shoretel, Turktel, Phone.com, Iotum Corporation, Cisco, fring, Siemens, Mitel, IceWarp, Radvision, etc.

Here are the lyrics:

Anywhere throughout the Internet
Way out there
Lie the goals that you made up
Once in a first class seat (a few sheets to the wind in the Cloud)


Everywhere despite lack of spectrum
Videos, voice, and text stream seamlessly
Over every device that you wished for
Text could even be converted to VM ...

MagicJack versus Nettalk, They Have Zero Competition, Only Each Other

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.

Suzanne,
English teacher and Technology - that is an interesting combination!! Guess we have something in common there, I will be a geek turned teacher and you are a teacher turned geek :-)



I completely agree with you that there is a market for everything. However, the problem is information asymmetry.
