Thomson made a major step in VoIP phones — they got rid of the computer. Typically, VoIP (voice over ip) allows you to use your computer to make phone calls over your broadband internet connection. However, with the new EV5203-C by Thomson, you’ll be able to plug the phone directly into your router.

This VoIP phone, the first fruit from Thomson’s purchase of Invente, will originally be passed out to service providers who will customize the Linux-based software to offer to consumers. Will the phone be customizble by the user? Well since it’s Linux, I’m pretty sure some hacker will make sure of that.

Take that DSL / land line! Bring on the cable.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
