Invoxia AudiOffice: The Ultimate iOS Speakerphone?

At this week’s Mobile World Congress, Invoxia introduced the AudiOffice, a new product that’s basically a fancy speaker dock for your iOS devices. While it has nothing to do with Audi cars, it has everything to do with AudiO. The dock is optimized for the VOIP and video chat capabilities of your iOS devices. The whole package is attractive, and I wouldn’t mind having one on my desk, thought it seems it’s a bit pricey for what it does.

Retro Phone: Combining the Old with the New

031009_rg_retrophone_01.jpgBuying phones is always something problematic. There are so many phones out there with so many features. As a base rule, cordless phones are cool, but they rarely have the same reception as a corded model. At least, that’s been my experience. Why do we need so many features?

Why Should You Use VOIP Instead of a Landline

103008_rg_voip_01.jpg
A lot of people might be wondering why you need to use VOIP instead of a traditional landline. VOIP has become extremely popular, thanks to Skype, a service that lets you use your computer to talk to your friends over a broadband internet connection. Right now, most TV cable companies and phone companies offer VOIP handset deals. The reason why they are so popular is because in most place, the old phone company had always the monopoly of landlines. Calls between cities in the same country are considered as long distance, and don’t even start looking at international long distance calls. The costs are pretty steep. But first of all, what is VOIP? VOIP stands for Voice Over Internet Protocol, a way to talk over the internet.

Plus there is the option of getting more features if you are ready to pay a monthly fee. We think that the basic module will be good for most users. There is also the possibility of low-cost international calls.

Who hasn’t got an old cell phone lying around? Almost all of us do, since we change cell phones every other year. There are programs by service carriers to recycle phones, but there are other things that you can do with those old phones, like turning them into a Skype handset. We love skype, but the headsets aren’t always the best to use. There are dedicated USB/VOIP phones out there, that you will simply need to plug into your computer, but how about creating your own for a lot cheaper? Instructables author JFDuval did the same thing with his old phone. Here’s how he did it.
