VOIP Upgrading…Doesn’t suck as I bad as I thought…

I used to not like the TV show; The Office. I could appear more cultured and say something like, “Oh the US version was not as good as the British version…” but who I’m I kidding! I grow up in a trailer park in the beautiful hills of Tennessee. So truthfully, I thought they both […]

VOIP….meh….

I really do not why I don’t care much for Voice Over IP. It’s certainly technical. Heck man, if you’re stuck on QoS, go ask a voice geek. Resellers are begging for more voice engineers, so it’s a great career path. You can really do some very cool things with it that your end users […]

Interop, Vegas…Rear View Mirror

My two favorite days for a Vegas conference: arriving and leaving. Everything in between is a foot numbing, sleepless blur. But we had a great time!

Funny Thing Happened on the Way Past the Casino

Interop was made more fun for us this year since we got to be on stage. Most of what we usually do is on camera of course…but presenting in front of people is the best. Since we started TechWiseTV 7 years ago, we have tried to always get better at our on-camera skills. This has […]
