    A few news items passed my eyes this morning, and it got me thinking about a conversation that Truphone Founder and CTO James Tagg and I had last week during IT Expo in Las Vegas.

His comment reminded me of the Wendy's TV commercial of a distant time, "Where's the Beef?" But that's…

    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…

  • The Dangers of VoIP Fraud [Sponsored post]

    19 Aug 2014 | 3:49 am
    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. As such, fraud is a very expensive problem for the industry and needs to be combatted. Consequently, many anti-fraud websites and networks have been established to report fraud and to warn others against rogue operators. VoIP forums and social networks like LinkedIn are flooded with topics from users devoted to companies accused of non-payment and other fraudulent activity. However, not all of these media are moderated and…

    Microsoft bumped up its cloud storage increasing it from 20 GB to 1 TB for every Office 365 user. It also increased its Microsoft OneDrive from 7 GB to 15 GB. According to Microsoft’s data, out of every four people, three have storage of less than 15 GB on their PC. This storage boost has put Microsoft in the forefront when compared to Google and Dropbox, as far as free allocation goes. The Free Dropbox accounts get a sparing 2GB, even though it may be expanded through signing up friends. While Google may offer 15 GB free cloud storage, it includes Gmail, Drive and Photos. In addition,…

  • Google Drive for Work Takes on Dropbox with Unlimited Storage for $10 Monthly

    Antony Maina
    14 Jul 2014 | 3:56 am
    For the first time ever, an unlimited storage has been offered by a cloud file storage service at entry level prices. Google has released the much anticipated Google Drive for Work which presents unlimited storage for as little as US$10 monthly. Since a Google Drive for Work account with less than five users is limited to 1TB storage as per user, it means that a business may spend up to $50. The incorporation of Quickoffice into the newly launched Drive grants a user the ability to not only open a Microsoft document, but also make changes to it in its innate format is a major drawcard. These…

  • 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…
  • Star Wars Hologram Phones to Reshape Communications

    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…
  • Voice to Text and Beyond

    6 Jun 2014 | 3:08 pm
    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…
  • The Net Neutrality Controversy

    Mike
    13 May 2014 | 9:39 pm
    Over the past couple of years, one of the more interesting subjects to grace headlines is regarding information services such as the Internet. Specifically, net neutrality has sparked much debate between those passionate about personal and business rights as well as those vested in government decision making processes. The fact is, the outcome of this debate could very well change the way we all use the Internet. To some of the population, this may seem a frivolous topic for the “techno-nerds” and politicians. Casual Internet users, certain business users and those lacking the…
