    Did you know that 98% of visitors leave your site before converting? With the staggering number of visitors who just don’t convert, it’s important that you find ways to capture their attention wherever possible. Retargeting (also referred to as remarketing) makes that easy – after a visitor leaves your website without converting, you can show them targeted display ads about the product, service, or content they viewed as they continue to surf the web on other sites. Retargeting uses a pixel on your web pages that tracks visitors and then serves them ads across other websites. Most…

  • BlackBerry 10: My European Travel Companion(s)

    Jim Courtney
    23 Jul 2014 | 3:51 am
    Over a recent 24 day period I traveled through eight countries, providing an opportunity to determine the level of access and travel support I could get from my BlackBerry 10 devices (a Z30 and a Z10). I also had available an iPad Air and an iPhone 5; however, they quickly became ancillary to my activities. We visited England to attend a long time friend’s memorial service, participated in a two week river cruise from Amsterdam to Budapest (Rhine, Main and Danube), and spent three days in each of Prague and Munich. Why two BlackBerry 10 devices? My Z30 is my primary mobile device when in…
  • PamFax: Who Uses Fax Today?

    Jim Courtney
    13 Jun 2014 | 6:46 am
    Over the past several years I have followed the evolution of PamFax from initially a Windows application seven years ago through to today’s fully cross-platform application versions such that your mobile smartphone or tablet can be your sole requirement for sending, receiving and archiving faxes. But the question arises as to why does one still need availability of a fax communications option? PamFax has evolved to serve as a convenient pay-as-you- go offering that has eliminated my fax phone line (cost saving ~$40/month) yet made faxing available on all these platforms. In fact, I also…
  • Voxeet – Bringing New Dimensions to Conference Calls

    Jim Courtney
    14 Apr 2014 | 5:15 am
    In a recent post, Why voice is the next big Internet wave, telephony futurist Martin Geddes discusses “a wave of innovation that fundamentally alters the definition” of voice as “a mature technology that simply connects people in real-time across a distance”. In one of his points he talks about “Beyond the Call”: Sadly, we are still replicating the patterns and limitations of 1876 telephony with the idea of a call today. We either schedule calls with fixed timing, length and attendees or blindly interrupt people. Future voice communication will mirror the more fluid activity…
  • BlackBerry Z30: Setting the Bar for Smartphone Platform Performance

    Jim Courtney
    26 Mar 2014 | 11:29 am
    Over the past three weeks I have been experiencing the recently released BlackBerry Z30 and uncovering what I feel is the best user experience from a platform perspective of any smartphone (or tablet) to date. Yes, there are applications I would like to have but, as will be mentioned further along, that is also improving significantly over time. What do I mean by platform? It’s a combination of the hardware and the underlying operating system, including the browser, the display, the user interaction and, frankly, the device and screen size. As background I should mention that I also have an…

  • 6 Essential Public WiFi Security Tips

    admin
    26 Aug 2014 | 3:50 am
    There are many risks associated with using a free WiFi network to browse sites that house private information. It’s quite easy to scan a public WiFI network to get a list of all the IPs currently connected. Once a snooper has that list, there’s a large amount of things they can do with that information. They can, for example, install software on your computer which can then be used to capture confidential information such as usernames and passwords, credit card numbers, even emails or search history. SaferVPN assembled their 6 fundamental tips for staying safe on public WiFi: 1.

    As the VoIP industry has grown in both importance and economic potential, unfortunately this has also resulted in fraud incidents becoming more frequent and damaging.

  • Delving into WebRTC

    Nick Epson
    29 Aug 2014 | 11:49 am
    Last week, WhichVoIP provided an overview of a new technology changing the face of the Internet. WebRTC is an addition to core web code that gives developers the ability to implement real time communication systems directly into a web page. Thanks in large part to HTML5, this technology will change how most of us utilize the web. Currently, we rely on various plugins and extensions to make use of certain features over the web. Truly, these browser-based applications have provided an immense power to Internet users. However, unlike a plugin, WebRTC digs deeper to take existing web technologies…
  • Intro to WebRTC: How Open Source Technologies are Changing the World

    20 Aug 2014 | 4:06 pm
    The evolution of the Internet and other technologies over the past several years has provided many of us with real world devices that formerly existed only in fantasy. Take the concept of hologram devices: light sabers aside, when you first watched Star Wars and witnessed the 3D image of Princess Leia projected from R2D2’s head – even for non-science fiction fans – the prospect of such technology was nothing less than fascinating. To think in just a couple short years, holograms will be a reality. A glance around any populated room reveals that devices imagined decades ago are now…

    Andy
    11 Aug 2014 | 10:02 am
    A major achievement in special effects when it first hit the silver screen, the holographic image of Princess Leia not only drew us into the world of Star Wars, it inspired millions of kids to imagine the endless possibilities that the technology of the future might hold. Some of those kids grew up to be engineers and designers and carried that inspiration over into the development of their own holograms. Now, just over three decades after the first film released, we are on the precipice of a new age of communications where we can actually communicate with others in three dimensions. We may…

    How the world has changed over the past couple of decades? In the last 15 years, the technology we use daily is a by-product of an unprecedented rate of evolution. In the 1990s, email was a revolutionary tool for many people but today, it is merely a basic necessity. A video made its way around the web last week where several teenagers’ reactions were gauged as they viewed an educational video for the Internet. After these kids watched the video they are asked several questions such as, “How do you connect to the Internet?” and “Do you know what a modem does?” One girl is actually…
  • Simplifying VoIP Monitoring

    Andy
    15 May 2014 | 10:58 am
    It is virtually impossible to get the most out of VoIP if you are not consistently monitoring your VoIP service. Digital telephony is highly dependent on the quality of your network, and let’s face it, no network is perfect. It will often experience downtime, peak traffic issues and infrastructure and equipment problems. You cannot afford to leave your VoIP quality to chance. You need to know how your network works vis–à–vis your VoIP. A VoIP monitoring service is the answer here, but which one, after all there are a lot of options these days. In this guide we will address some of…
