There are always lists. Everybody comes up with Top 10, Top 5, Best of, blah, blah, blah. What does the list actually mean though?

Rich Tehrani points out that Groupon may not be the best friend for small businesses because it attracts the least valuable customer.

2 More Acquisitions

January 6, 2011

Rumor from SFGate is it that Skype bought Qik for $100 million. Qik's smartphone video streaming service has grown to 5 million users. That doesn't mean revenue though - and Skype should know, right? Only 6% of its 124 million users contribute to the bottom line.

Smoothstone Has Patience with Sprint

January 6, 2011

Sprint finally lands a partner in its Mobile Convergence system. After spending much of 2010 talking with Sprint about the MVNO and Integration options, I applaud the patience of Smoothstone, which announced today the availability of Smoothstone's cloud-based voice solutions combined with Mobile Integration delivered over the Sprint Global MPLS network to provide unprecedented flexibility and performance for the most dynamic and demanding businesses. In English, that means that Smoothstone's softswitch (Broadsoft it seems) is connected to Sprint's network via an MPLS link to allow customers that also have a Sprint mobile phone to have full integration with the Hosted PBX. In essence, the Sprint cell phone becomes an extension on the PBX.
