The Art of Text Messaging

Posted on 05 February 2008 by Staff

iPhone texting

Text messaging is a whole new language that most people know nothing about.

Do you know what 182 means? What about CRS? If you are a seasoned text messenger, you know exactly what those mean (I Hate You and Can’t Remember Sh** for those that arn’t). When I was in high school, 182 was just a number, but today it means so much more. So if you find yourself on the other end of a BRB, here is a quick run down of some common and not so common messages.

A New Take on VOIP – The ooma Hub Phone

Posted on 11 December 2007 by Staff

ooma Hub

Ditch your landline for this new VOIP enabled device. The ooma Hub wants to take over your telephone (and the monthly bills) for about $400. The device sports a host of cool features, like a instant second line, Enhanced Call-Waiting, three-way conferencing, caller-ID, one touch do not disturb, voicemail and unlimited U.S. calling. It uses your existing broadband connection, just like many other VOIP devices, to place calls. It’s bound to be one of next year’s hottest gadgets!
