Progressive is pushing out an automobile tracker device called Snapshot. The device attaches to your car's diagnostic port and pushes data out via M2M. Consumers can log on to check out daily stats.

With Snapshot, Progressive’s Pay As You Drive® (PAYD) insurance program,
consumers can get a discount for insurance if they "drive less, in safer ways and during safer times of day". "Your driving snapshot includes the number of miles you drive, time of day you drive and how often you make sudden stops." Big Brother, anyone?

Progressive calls it a game changer.

More Spectrum, More Spectrum

March 22, 2011

At CTIA today for the CEO Panel, AllThingsD quipped, "A lot of carbon dioxide being expended at CTIA talking about how spectrum is the industry’s oxygen." Just so you know, they HAVE spectrum. They horde spectrum. What they don't do is deploy it until they feel like it.

CTIA wants another auction. The FCC's "Genachowski touts benefits of voluntary incentive auction where broadcasters and others get a piece of the revenue generated by auctioning off their spectrum."  Have they all forgotten that the radio spectrum is a public asset?

First, generally consumers lose as Ma Bell hordes even more spectrum. T-Mobile has AWS spectrum; Ma Bell is buying Qualcomm's 700 MHz spectrum, which is being contested by consumer groups, because all this spectrum shouldn't be in the hands of 2 companies.

Super Charging the SIP Trunk

March 17, 2011

I was on a panel about Supercharging the SIP Trunk Sales by Broadvox. It sounded similar to the panel I did at CVX West 2010 on Upselling the SIP Trunk sale.

This one had to go a little more basic to What is SIP? SIP Trunking is how carriers power dial-tone to an IP-PBX.
