VoIP and more. Moving your landlines to the cloud.

Remember my attempts at removing the need for a phone line? My goal is to only require a data connection. Nothing else. No phone line rental, no separate cabling for the phone at home. Just an internet connection. Why? Well, freedom and a fair slice of geekiness in …

Cutting the cord. Trying to kill off my landline.

Apple hook up with IBM to get further into your business

I remember laughing when business people started buying iPads. “Pah. They’ve got it all wrong”, I thought, “that’s not a business tool”. Even though a lot of tasks were still perhaps better done on a Windows laptop at the time, the iPad and iPhones took over and they …

A company phone used to be a BlackBerry. In a lot of places it still is, but now there’s more and more people bringing their own devices into the workplace and using them instead. It’s called “BYOD” and those people “in the know” tell me that it’s massive …
