I tuned into the SMS Text News podcast (number 9) this morning from the Desert Island. Instead of using the Dell Ultralight M1330’s (rather nifty) speakers, I plugged in the Polycom Communicator C100 (it’s USB). It’s a bit of genius. Of course it does voice really well..

Focus on Canada hitting SMS Text News shortly

I’ve had enough of hearing absolutely nothing from Canada in a mobile context. The only memorable thing I can tell you about is RIM. And Rogers executives who knew nothing about mobile (this was, admittedly, a few years ago, I trust the situation has changed). And the enterprising chaps at Bell who introduced unlimited data […]
