FCC Requires Interconnected VoIP Providers to Provide Enhanced 911 Service

Link: http://hraunfoss.fcc.gov/edocs_public/attachmatch/DOC-258818A1.pdf

It's official...VoIP has to connect to real 911 service.

This is kind of a good thing, I suppose. Both my Vonage and Lingo service have had 911, now I'm in a SBC area and they wouldn't let Vonage tie in directly...until now.... Don't know what kind of 911 service Lingo provides.

Though I wasn't that concerned about 911 over VoIP, though I activated it just because it said I had to if I wanted it and I figured it wouldn't hurt anything to do so.

Just that the only time I had need to call 911....it was by landline and they had to wait for my to regain consciousness and call back before they could find out where to send the ambulance (I had been at the location for almost a year and I was correctly listed etc, so I don't know where the failure was...)

Though I wonder what happens if your local 911 service get's your location and callback number...and the callback number isn't local. Or not even in the same state or country. Would they call you back? :??:

I wonder about computer or mobile interconnected VoIP service. Or what happens when I through my ATA in my suitcase for use while on holidays.... :lalala:

Netflix Takes Over Wal-Mart DVD Rentals

Link: http://nytimes.com/aponline/business/AP-Netflix-Wal-Mart.html?hp&ex=1116561600&en=61762979e34dd0cf&ei=5094&partner=homepage

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is turning over its online DVD rental business to Netflix Inc., signaling that the world's largest retailer couldn't beat the Internet upstart at its own game.

Somehow I'm not that surprised that Wal-Mart failed....though it is good news that they 'declared' NetFlix the victor &#59;D

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
