It was different than most conferences or seminars one usually attends and it really did live up to our expectations bringing together experts, professionals in the space

By: Ari The end of every year is always a time when lots of predictions for the new year appear in various publications. Today I wanted to comment on NetworkWorld and the Top 10 predictions for VoIP and convergence for 2009. I agree with the authors, Steve Taylor and Larry Hettick with most (if not all) of their thoughts as I have also stated in some of my predictions. First, as I wrote in my previous blog, i do think that we need to NOT generalize and call it “Predictions for VoIP” as Voip is to general. Any replacements are

There are many publications covering the voice over IP (VoIP) industry. One of the better industry publications for reviewing trends and seeing some “real analyzed” industry stats is: IP Business News, edited by Gary Kim. A recent article discusses the large number of home phone lines that the big incumbent phone companies are losing. Contrary to what many think, these lines are not all lost to mobile phones. The article addresses a survey conducted by the Yankee Group showing that “Many consumers are not getting rid of their home phone but instead are switching to alternate or lower cost residential

Phone.com - Fast Eddie Chambers

Answer: Fast Eddie Chambers.   This weekend I watched a great fight, split decision, between Fast Eddie Chambers and Calvin Brock in the IBF heavyweight title elimination round. Chambers won, and I have to believe that not only his incredible speed and beautiful moves, but also his imprinted team gear had something to do with it. Yes, folks, Team Chambers was wearing the green(ish), black and white of Phone.com.
