GigaOm relates the most recent tidings, whereby Vonage was found to have infringed upon six Sprint patents, and fined some U.S. $69.5 million in damages. (We may have to shift a few of those Facebook attorneys to the Vonage account.)
No "woo woo, woo woo woo" pour moi this go around.
Time Warner Digital phone service is sounding more alluring all the time, in which case Columbus Circle will then have a virtual monopoly on my digital tether.
Mr. Roadrunner, can I at least get a bundled discount??
So, with all this VOIP stress, I could really use an escape about now.
Hey, how 'bout that "Halo 3" release from Redmond yesterday? That could provided some needed distraction from my Internet telephony woes?
Alas, I'm still a generation behind -- "Halo 3" requires the X-Box 360. (You get much better deals on games if you stay a generation behind, but you're also about 3-4 years behind on the games).
Unfortunately, according to an AP wire report, style is winning out over substance as the limited-edition packaging for the new game is apparently scratching the Halo 3 discs.
Which is worse, having the packaging scratch your brand spankin' new Halo 3 discs, or having Microsoft automagically update your computer via its Windows Update, without your express permission?
I guess that really depends on how badly you want to play the Microsoft game.
