We try to leave Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals to the big boys but, hey, it’s 2020 and some of these deals may never come along again. Most of these are offerings we’ve tried for ourselves which is different than regurgitating the flyers from Amazon, WalMart, and BestBuy. Televisions. Who would have ever thought you’d be able to purchase a 75″ 4K Android TV with built-in Chromecast for under $500? TCL has you covered this year at Best Buy.… Read More ›

You might think Backups are critical in the event of a catastrophic hardware failure. And you’d be right. But there are other equally important reasons to maintain current backups.

Perhaps the single most important component in the VoIP toolbox for any PBX deployment that includes traveling users is the softphone whether it’s deployed on notebook computers or smartphones.

We’ve also sung the praises of earlier releases of Google’s Pixel smartphone which makes a perfect VoIP companion even without a cellphone provider. Today we’re… Read More ›

We’ve been wrestling with virtual private networks for more than 22 years now. Here’s a quick walk down memory lane. Our adventure began with the Altiga 3000 series VPN concentrators which we introduced in the federal courts in 1999. It was a near perfect plug-and-play hardware solution for secure communications between remote sites using less than secure Windows PCs. Cisco quickly saw the potential, gobbled up the company, and promptly doubled the price of the rebranded concentrators. Over a decade… Read More ›
