Never Vote Incumbent

July 12, 2010

As long as I am ranting, I figured I would hit on Incumbents. I don't mean the ILEC's, although most of them don't care a wit about their customers. I'm talking about career politicians. We breed them in the US like a rare dog. 

Think about this: Why would someone spend $24 million to be governor?

Seriously, More iPhone

July 12, 2010

This country has some major issues not the least of which the media gets bogged done in buzz marketing. Why else would there be a week's worth of "news" about LeBron leaving Cleveland for Miami. A week! That's almost more coverage than we give to any of the folloeing:

Is There Profit In VoIP?

July 8, 2010

A few of my clients are self-funded without any serious debt. When I send out news - like Vocalocity raised $3.45M for a total of $97M - the first question that gets emailed backed to me is: "Aren't they profitable?"  It certainly doesn't look that way!

On a call after the Broadsoft IPO, there was shock that Broadsoft has not had made money yet. How is that possible when you have a majority of the market share?

There are so many companies in the VoIP space. Thousands really.



So How is VoIP Doing?

Two Mergers

July 7, 2010

Two resellers merged: GLOBALINX Purchases TMC for 'Robust' Agent Channel. GLOBALINX is an IP reseller. TMC is a TDM reseller. Should be interesting to see how the Bell-heads work with the Net-heads, since the thinking is way different (and so is the approach to sales).

The Green Zone Inside Out

July 7, 2010

[Just a warning: This is a Rant, so you can skip it if you want.]

I just finished reading Barry Eisler's book, Inside Out. Eisler used to work for the CIA. Page 301: "Number 1, the country is run by corporate interests.

How to SELLECOM SAAS

Zayo Buys AFS

July 1, 2010

As Rob Powell predicted, the self-proclaimed Fiber Bigot, Dave Rusin, CEO of Rochester-based American Fiber Systems, sold the company to Zayo. Some reports were that the sale price was $185M, but Zayo is stating that number is ridiculous. The original press release did not offer a price tag. 

Consider that Zayo financed $250M in debt at 10.25% in April. It's AGL acuisition is still pending. Zayo has a capital intensive business (building out fiber always is). And it's a VC backed company. Zayo smacks of a roll-up waiting for the right time to resell.

Is 4G a Game Changer?

July 1, 2010

Lots of buzz around 4G - and Sprint and Clearwire certainly need that buzz to reach tweet level. But is it a game changer

Just my opinion but 3G is ho-hum. I haven't noticed that much speed off by EVDO card or Blackberry.

What Makes a Good Master Agent?

June 29, 2010

The Technology Channel Association (TCA) hosted a conference call today about What Makes a Good Master Agent.

The main factor is of course money. Commissions. Collecting them. Mediating commission disputes.
