Thoughts on the Industry Right Now

All the forecasts: have any of them been accurate? Or is it just a way to sell reports? If it is, let me know and I will start writing forecast reports too. Think about this: "for 2013, Infonetics reported...

Pay to Play

One common question, "How do you get listed in a research study?" My answer: It's pay to play. And people look at me, thinking, "What a cynic." Well, I am rather cynical, but that doesn't mean what I said...

The Case Around Copper

In this article in the Tampa Bay Times, it mentions the decline of copper lines. The number of U.S. phone lines peaked at 186 million in 2000. Since then, more than 100 million copper lines have already been disconnected, according...

Will the NSA Hurt US Cloud Revenue?

The whistleblower / traitor was revealed in the NSA scandal: Edward Snowden. I have been reading a lot about this whole situation. Apparently, this story was broken last year, but no one paid attention. "William Binney, a 32-year veteran of...

The NSA Spying Scandal isn't New

Remember back in 2003 when a whistleblower from AT&T pointed out Room 641A that the NSA used to spy on all AT&T long distance calls and Internet traffic? Verizon and Qwest denied they did, too. Put on your foil hat...

Sprint is Losing

I have had Sprint for a long time. Mainly, I have them because I don't like to give my money to the RBOC cellcos. I may just have to switch.Sprint's network makes me think that THEY are an MVNO. The...

Robo-Calls

I need to learn not to answer the phone if I don't know the caller. It's always robo-calls. And it is usually a Level3 number! 407-412-9892 was the Florida PAL. When did they start robo-dialing? I don't give money to...

T-Mobile Layoffs Called FCC's Fault

This makes me laugh. AT&T's SEVP for external and legislative affairs, Cicconi, wrote a post for AT&T's Public Policy blog last week that again attacked the FCC. AT&T blames any T-Mobile Layoffs on the FCC.Really?It's not the fault of T-Mobile...

Why I Was Going to Run for Congress

This is kind of a political rant, so fair warning and I apologize if I offend you in advance. Voter Suppression, media green zones like in Baghdad (and here), indefinite detention of Americans by military, the revolving door between lobbyists and government, SOPA, Congressional insider trading, shorting...

Some Have Reached The Peak

I had a conversation yesterday with a friend from UHC. She mentioned that VISA is worried about its profitability on just the $0.24 federal max per debit card transaction. Here's the problem the American economy faces: We Peaked Already.  Period.Globally, America is...

To One of the Weird Ones

So your streams are probably filled with Steve Jobs links today. For repeating some of it here I apologize in advance. Seth Godin wrote a short eulogy to Steve Jobs yesterday. He spoke about the devices he created. I think...

In this article in TechCrunch, you will read an interesting look at how Silicon Valley and the march of technology are causing a Digital Divide.Every online sale takes away from brick-and-mortar business just as Wal-mart has run over mom-and-pop stores,...

XO Comments on L3-GC but not T-T

XO Communications filed comments with the FCC that some media outlets said ripped the merger of Level3 and Global Crossing. Rodrego A. Byerly tweeted that it smacked of a spurned suitor. Maybe it was. XO issued a statement that the...

A Little Anti-Trust Rant

A CLEC filed suit against VZ for anti-trust this week. For those of you unfamiliar with operating a CLEC, ISP or OTT VoIP company, let me explain what I have seen over 11 years of servicing this industry.Ma Bell has...

Dear PR People and Constant Contact

Dear PR People and Constant Contact, WTH???First, Constant Contact. Gail Goodman, for goodness sake, please move to an opt-in approach to your service. After being added to anyone’s list, the adressee should immediately get an email that asks if they...

Promiscuous Networking

While this whole social media thing is new and yet evolving, experts have emerged. Ninjas even. All these folks that lay a claim to knowing everything there is to know about social media. It was the same with multi-level marketing...

We're Sorry

How Does This Keep Happening?

How does someone get yet another VP of Sales after that person did such a less than mediocre job as VP of S&M at another VoIP Provider? Bouncing from place to place with no more than 2 years in any...

Never Vote Incumbent

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...

Seriously, More iPhone

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...
