Daughter's Car Stolen

Yes, even in Irvine, one of the safest cities in the country a car can get stolen. Our daughter's 94 Saturn was bagged from right in front of our house on a street that the police described as "the most obscure street in the entire city". If that doesn't give a nice warm fuzzy feeling of security nothing will. So much for being safe and obscure.

Linksys SPA9000 IP Key System

Linksys SPA9000 IP Key SystemVoice over IP PBX systems are being brought out by all the major companies and Cisco’s own Call Manager has been around for a couple of years now. Besides systems like the Asterisk Open Source PBX, there really isn’t anything available for the VSB (very small business, 1 – 16 users) market. That is, until now. When Linksys acquired Sipura last summer, we predicted that within nine months some embedded systems PBX system would hit the market. Well, Linksys beat that mark a few months early with the SPA9000 Telephone Key System.
