Save some time and money with desktop video conferencing

It used to be that desktop video conferencing was like decaf coffee that tastes good-a complete oxymoron.  Times have changed.  Better web cams, faster machines, USB 2.0, and better codecs for audio and video have made it a good option.  Oovoo looks like an interesting download to try:
Video Conferencing might not be that interesting to most […]

Web apps will make the iPhone the killer business phone

Yesterday I panned the iPhone for business folks, at least for now, but with the announcement of “iZoho” today maybe I could be wrong.  Read/Write Web has this to say:

Should I take notes on my computer or on paper?

I think this must be one of the key questions facing workers right now.  Silly you think?  Okay, you go into a meeting, you know that information is going to be shared that you need to remember or you are going to be given a task (or three), so how do you record said information […]
