IP Mobility improves business communications

Spend a lot of time working outside the office? If so, you probably rely heavily on your smartphone. In January, Toshiba announced a free application to turn a smartphone into an extension on the office phone system. The app was first available on the IPedge VoIP business telephone solution and now it's also available on the VIPedge cloud-based service.

Good business has always been about communication … communicating with customers, vendors, partners, advisors, employees. People ask if smartphones have hurt our business. The answer is "No", but they have changed it. Now an important part of what we do is integrating the various methods of communication. The most successful businesses use every tool they can to enhance the effectiveness of their communication.

The Energy of the Future:
It's time we started investing in our thought-energy education

There has been a lot of attention and huge amounts of money (billions of our tax dollars) invested by the Obama Administration in so-called "energy of the future" options. Our public servants think they are much more capable at investing our billions in the "energy of the future" than the private business sector.

Fun Phone Facts…

The world's first mobile phone was caught on film in 1922?!

The world's first mobile phone was caught on film in 1922?!

This rare footage was found by film archivists at British Pathé. Spokesman Mark Harris said, "One of our researchers came across the clip and we were amazed that the idea was so old, we are used to budding technologies appearing in the 1950s and 60s but this is four years before television was first demonstrated."

The silent film first appeared in a cinemagazine for women sometime between 1921 and 1933. Notes describing the action to viewers read, "Bless us, they're never still – always up to something new. And Eve's latest invasion is in the wireless world. It's Eve's portable wireless phone – and won't hubby have a time when he has to carry one!"
