Happy Halloween: Google Puts the Final Nail in the Google Voice Coffin

Meet the new Microsoft: It’s Google! If you follow Nerd Vittles regularly, you’ll recall that five months ago we warned you to start packing your bags if you were a Google Voice user with PBX in a Flash. And, as a special Halloween treat, Google gave the open source community the finger. As of May 15, 2014, there will be no more XMPP support for Google Voice. So much for embracing the open source community. And, for all of you… Read More ›

With the release of PBX in a Flash™ 2.0.6.4.4 last week, it seemed only fitting to reintroduce our one-click wonder that takes advantage of the latest and greatest feature sets in both Asterisk® 11 and FreePBX® 2.11. Incredible PBX™ 11 gives you the best of all worlds plus all of the very best, preconfigured Asterisk applications we could find. And the installer together with all of the apps are pure open source so you can learn how to build a… Read More ›

Self-inflicted wounds are nothing new in the technology business, but Google spent much of last week working hard to take top honors for what is clearly one of the most selfish and short-sighted moves ever in the telecommunications marketplace. Less than a week after extolling the values of open source technology during Google I/O 20131, Google wasted little time performing a complete 180 by deep sixing further support of the open source XMPP protocol for messaging and VoIP communications.

Each time we release a new version of PBX in a Flash™, I’m reminded of one of my favorite childhood books and one of the best mottos of all time: "I Think I Can!" You can’t really appreciate what goes into an open source product like PBX in a Flash until you try doing it yourself. The sad part is we and the CentOS™ development team are part of a dwindling few non-commercial entities that still are in the open… Read More ›

It’s been a wild ride with the $35 Raspberry Pi®. In addition to our tens of thousands of Happy Campers around the world, we now have nearly a dozen friends in our little neighborhood using a Raspberry Pi as their primary phone system. Can you believe it? The Raspberry Pi Foundation has already sold more than a million of these devices. If you’re new to the party, imagine squeezing a 700 mHz ARM processor with 512MB of RAM, 2 USB… Read More ›

We began our Windows 8 adventure a few weeks ago with a look at Microsoft’s promising Surface Pro. As much as we liked the concept, there were a few too many compromises for us, and we ended up returning the machine. The deal breaker really was figuring out what to do with the awkward keyboard when you wanted to use the Surface Pro as a tablet. The connector sticks out of the end of the keyboard so there would always… Read More ›

In our last article, we introduced the PBX in a Flash Virtual Machine for Oracle’s VirtualBox. To commemorate the end of the world today, we wanted to go out with a bang. So we’re pleased to introduce Incredible PBX 11 Virtual Machine. As with the PIAF-Green Virtual Machine, this new appliance features CentOS 6.3, Asterisk® 11, and FreePBX® 2.11 beta. In addition, it includes Incredible Fax with HylaFax and AvantFax, SMS speech-to-text messaging as well as SMS message blasting with… Read More ›

If you had asked us a year ago whether it was possible to run a full-featured PBX on a computer the size of a credit card, we would have laughed and told you to move along. Well, that was then. In the last 21 days, we’ve not only gotten through the proof-of-concept phase of porting Incredible PBX to the Raspberry Pi but, thanks to a lot of hard work from Gernot and his Asterisk® for Raspberry Pi™ project, we now… Read More ›
