I am a litle behind the times due to my son’s arrival but I thought I would comment on some IP communications news of late..
Michael Robertson looks to be up to no good, as far as the ILECs may be concerned, he has just launched Gizmo a new Skype-like IM & VoIP service which could cause pain for some traditional operators. Like Skype, Gizmo uses Global IP Sound’s technology at the core and like Xten software uses SIP so it’s open standards compliant. It would seem Michael is looking to combine the best of both worlds and that sounds like a winning combination to me. I would personally like to see some video functionality, maybe in the next release?
