Google Voice Founder Sets His Sights On VoIP Once Again

According to a recent tweet he sent out, it looks like Walker and his team at incubator Firespotter Labs is cooking up something in the VoIP space. As Walker writes, “Starting to play around with a bunch of VoIP ideas…time to take this incubator thing into hyperdrive:).” For background, Walker co-founded GrandCentral, a phone management service that first launched in 2006 and was acquired by Google for $50+ million in 2007.

Grand Central was relaunched as Google Voice. Walker left the Google Voice team in late 2010 to join Google Ventures as an EIR, and then founded Firespotter Labs. To date, Firespotter has launched a few projects publicly—food photo-sharing app Nosh, spoof app Jotly, and waitlisting application for restaurants NoshList. Walker clearly has plenty of experience in VoIP, with the creation of Grand Central as well the launch and development of Google Voice. Odd Anomalous Facts about the Human Mouth.

King Island is a small island approximately halfway between Tasmania and the Australian mainland and the upgrade is part of Hydro Tasmania’s AUD$46 million King Island Renewable Energy Integration Project (KIREIP). KIREIP is a project which exists to create renewable energy generation and reduce dependence on fossil fuels. To achieve this, a portfolio of old, new and experimental products are brought together which will increase renewable energy use, deliver reduced carbon emissions, all the while maintaining the quality and reliability of the power supply on the island.

Cisco Connected Grid technology has been added to the portfolio of environmentally friendly products used in this initiative. The Cisco Connected Grid solution includes ruggedized routers and switches that are specifically designed to handle the most demanding energy utility environments.

How to Ensure Replacement Windows Live up to Efficiency Claims. Home energy savings from replacement windows may be overstated by marketers… Homeowners who replace their existing windows with new energy-efficient ones will be saving energy and helping to reduce heating and cooling costs.

How to Ensure Replacement Windows Live up to Efficiency Claims

But the home energy-savings claims made by some companies which market replacement windows may be overstated. Window technology has improved significantly in the last 15 years, with new windows offering reduced heat loss, less air leakage, and warmer window surfaces which help reduce condensation.

Online Checkout Evolves — Pay by Holding Your Credit Card Up to Your Webcam. The Internet will need to see some ID, please. Online payment company Jumio has announced the launch of Netverify: an image recognition technology that allows merchants to remotely scan credit cards and IDs with a webcam or phone. To use Netverify, shoppers hold up a credit card and a driver’s license to their cameras to verify their identification as they’re checking out. This online equivalent of asking a customer to show ID at the checkout stand is designed to help eliminate credit card fraud, and although the application can recognize and verify an image, no data is stored on the computer.

With less hardware than a traditional credit card swiper – and an even more mobile platform than a plug-in device like Square – Netverify can make an online transaction just as personal as a point of sale, but less expensive for the merchants.
