Fios - $1,000 per household?

February 28, 2008

After it seems like an eternity of waiting, Verizon is finally starting the process to install Fios on my street.  They have most of my home town of Orchard Park, NY strung with fiberoptic cable from pole to pole, but those of us that are serviced by underground cables were last in line.

Anyhow, now I understand why Verizon plans on spending an average of $1,000 per household to install Fios.  First all the utility companies (gas, water, telephone, cable...) all have to mark/flag their lines. 

Lessons learned from the Blu-ray vs. HD DVD battle

February 20, 2008

Thankfully the battle is now over between the competing high-definition DVD formats and Sony's Blu-ray format is the victor.  Fortunately, this played out a lot faster than the Beta/VHS battle that lasted through most of the 80's (BTW: to this day, I still have one of each in my AV cabinet) Settling the Blu-ray / HD-DVD battle will end much of the consumer confusion and let us get back to spending our "economic stimulus" checks when they arrive later this summer.

Now that this is behind us, what can we learn from this?

More Fax Webinar Q&A

February 6, 2008

Another great turnout for today's two webinars on "Fax - SIP+T.38 to the Rescue", thanks everyone for participating.

And more great questions:

Q: (Brian) a slide showed FAX machine - T.38 gateway - T.38 Gateway - FAX Machine.  I was under the impression that once a FAX was converted into T.38 It coudlnt be changed back into a audio FAX call.
A: Actually, a fax can be converted to T.38 and back no problem or loss of information.
