Ribbit VOIP explained by Kevin Marks and JP Rangaswami of British Telecom

Posted by Charbax on 12th December 2009

Kevin Marks and JP Rangaswami are introducing Ribbit VOIP platform and APIs that gives independent developers, ISVs, and global enterprises the tools and functionality to create new ways to communicate-with people, businesses, and software. Ribbit enables developers to combine the richness of voice calling with the interactivity of Web 2.0 experiences. More info at http://ribbit.com

I also ask them about how they think the telecom industry is reacting to VOIP as a threat to existing revenues and as an opportunity for creating new experiences around voice communications.

PeekFON Martin Varsavsky Interview

Posted by Charbax on 12th December 2009

Martin Varsavsky is the CEO and Founder of FON and of about a dozen or more other companies at http://english.martinvarsavsky.net

In this interview, I ask him not only about his cool new PeekFON device with Free PanEuropean GPRS Roaming, also about the current and future plans for FON WiFi roaming for the world, about firmware updates for Fonera 2.0n that I reviewed here, how we could expect more roaming agreements to be added with more ISPs in the future to create one big worldwide standard for WiFi authentication and roaming, Fem2Cell technology in upcoming Fem2Fonera and even prospects for White Spaces, WiMax and 4G technology in FON routers.

Samsung Galaxy Android smartphone

Posted by Charbax on 4th September 2009

Here is a pretty good looking Android smartphone by Samsung, this is Samsung’s first Android product. It comes with a good looking 3.2″ AMOLED touchscreen. Although the screen I think is too small for on-screen keyboard to be usable enough. I get confused as well for how to navigate on this Smartphone, I cannot find the Home button, but it’s also that I haven’t used Android much yet.
