…It’s Things Thursday: PAPPA*PHONE?


Hulger’s PAPPA*PHONE brings a touch of class to the VoIP telephone.

Cut from a single solid piece of American walnut (so that the grain of the wood flows from the handset to the base), each PAPPA*PHONE is handmade by Furni, and also incorporates a piece of solid hand-polished brass into the design, as well as laser etched details.

Since it works with all VoIP services (Skype, iChat, GoogleTalk, Vonage, Yahoo, etc.) and is plug-and-play compatible with both the Mac and PC, it’s as easy to use as it is beautiful.

Maybe this VoIP thing has a chance after all…

…Gizmodo may get impeached following iPhoneyGate?

Gizmodo stirred the blogosphere into a tizzy recently with iPhoneyGate, a false report of Apple’s iPhone being introduced well before anyone expected it to be. It turned out Gizmodo was fed some misleading information, as the iPhone was released when they said it would be, but as a Linksys VOIP phone (apparently Linksys owned the trademark on the iPhone name all along, and no one knew). Tempers flared, and Brian Lam, the man behind this whole fiasco, explained his side of the story today for all to dissect and complain about in future blog posts. I remain ambivalent about the whole situation, considering it a giant case of mass miscommunication, but apparently, others feel a little more betrayed than I do. Who knew the truth could be so confusing?
