In the last couple of months, some of you may have noticed that it seemed like nothing got written in this blog. That wasn’t the case, of course – a technical “glitch”, which happened when we moved from the Feedburner platform to Google’s, caused our RSS feeds to malfunction for some of you. I won’t burden you with the gory details, but I’ll tell you this: it’s over, and we’re back.
For those of you who might have missed some of the stuff I had here recently, here’s a short snapshot of it, grouped by related topics.
As usual, I had my share of mobile related issues to cover. Most notable during this period has been the carnival of the mobilists which I hosted here.
Another post that is still being visited and commented on is the one I wrote about the iPhone being beaten in sales by Windows Mobile.
On the fixed side of things, I had the 1gbps announcement from Korea. Not sure what you can do with so much bandwidth, but some actually think that there’s no such thing as too much bandwidth (I tend to agree).
When RIM decided to take my desk phone I wasn’t that thrilled – I’m just too attached to it.
On the TV front, I contemplated about how the new trend of TV Widgets that will bring the videophone to the home.
There has been a lot of discussion about openness and standardization on this blog lately. The most notable post here was about the distinction between open source and open standards – yes, they are not the same. Even if you use an open standard, you can still choose between a proprietary and an open source solution – there are those that even switch back from open source to proprietary.
And while we’re talking about standards, I’ve also wrote about why they are so hard to follow.
Follow me on Twitter
I’ve given this post a topic group of its own, as I believe that it is as important: You can now follow me on twitter to receive more from me on a variety of topics.
Not to indulge in self promotion, I’ll quote Luca Fligheddu who just recently gave me his vote of confidence and included me in his list of top 30 VoIP leaders to follow on twitter.
