Buzzed WiMax

Secret Portals

March 25, 2008

You'll notice that Web 2.0 apps like to open to private beta. (I think Google started this with Gmail but don't quote me). Lately, the requests for an invite to GrandCentral (voice management portal acquired by Google last year) have piled in. It's the new viral marketing.

Muni Wi-Fi is Dead!

March 24, 2008

Media outlets are puking with the story that Muni Wi-Fi is dead. From the get go there were factions that wanted this to fail. (ILEC/cellcos and MSO's being just 2 parties)>

But there were groups that needed this to work: Intel, MOTO, Tropos, the Wi-fi Alliance, CityNet, MetroFi. and EarthLink. Unfortunately, too many government officials thought this would be some kind of windfall.

Sprint is Done

March 17, 2008

This is the tale of one guy trying to activate one handset on Sprint. My current cell phone is on Nextel. My EVDO card bills on SPrintPCS. They have not been combined in 2 years.

No Privacy Anymore

March 17, 2008

Amidst the FISA bills in Congress, rumor has it that cellular companies gave open access to the US government for wiretaps, just like the little room at AT&T's San Fran CO. That's swell.

According to this article, the list of folks listening to your VoIP calls, reading your email, tracking your location, tailing your web usage, tapping your cell and landline calls, and other nefarious acts is long. It includes Ma Ball, VZW, law enforcement (LEA), governments around the globe, your boss, and criminals.

Voice2Text

March 17, 2008

How far has Speech Recognition software come since Dragon Speak? Voice to text is picking up some momentum. Rich Tehrani writes about Visual Voicemail with SpinVox, SimulScribe and GotVoice as ways to get voicemail as an email.

I would think that mobile people would rather have voicemail as an MP3 or WAV file.

Podcasting

March 17, 2008

Podcasting is all the rage right now. I use Power MP3 Recorder on my laptop with a Y-connector to my phone to record. While I thought the recording was the challenge. It's not.

Back from Vegas

March 13, 2008

What a whirlwind week in telecom. Just back from the Agent Expo in Vegas. It started Monday with the surprise announcement that Level3 had fired its President, Kevin O'Hara. O'Hara was Pres and COO and co-founder. But Integration has been a Nightmare.

Office 2.0

March 9, 2008

I am off to Vegas to moderate a panel discussion on Virtual Office. Unfortunately, the discussion will really be about Hosted VoIP, not Office 2.0. Office 2.0 is the concept of the Virtual Office. At IT Redux, they have pushed the concept to the edge.

Social Networking is the Craze

March 9, 2008

I don't know about you but I get a decent amount of email from LinkedIn and other networking sites. It seems like a new one pops up every day. (Thanks to sites like Ning which make it easy to build one coupled with the gold rush mentality of the web entrepreneur, its no wonder).

MySpace and Facebook still get the most traffic according to Compete.com.
