For those of you who have bought a ūmi or have seen ūmi live, we would love to hear your thoughts on your experience!
Today, we launched “ūmi Buzz” on www.cisco.com/umi to make it easy for you to hear what people are saying about ūmi by providing you with upcoming ūmi news, videos, tweets, Facebook posts and blog posts….and also giving you an easy way to join in the conversation!
Oh, the weather outside is still frightful, especially with the recent nor’easter that’s sweeping through; nevertheless, college students across the country are preparing to head back to school after a long winter break. In the coming weeks, college campuses will reopen and Spring semester classes will begin. Your children may not miss you right away because let’s face it, spending weeks with your family during the college years is tough on any student. After a while though, they’ll yearn to see your face, and with an empty nest, you’ll yearn to see theirs, too.
How do you keep in touch with the kids when they’re 30 or 3,000 miles away? Phone? Close. Video calling on the Internet? Getting warmer. Video calling from your HDTV? Bingo! With Cisco ūmi you can check in on your future scholars by video calling them on your living room TV. If they’re out studying at the library or, dare we say, at a party, you can just leave them a video message and they can call you back later. (Note – this is a perfect way to embarrass them if they watch the message with friends in the room!)

We are excited to showcase our consumer products and share with you how Cisco is transforming video into an experience.
