walkie talkie Two Way Radios Motorola long range walkie talkie two way radio
The concept of two-way radios goes back more than 100 years and the technology still remains prevalent to the current day. Often referred to as walkie talkies, two-way radios are used to provide efficient communications in a wide range of industries including courier services, security and policing, aviation and even school systems. In this article we will overview the history of two-way radios and their ongoing contributions to mankind.
When making reference to the history of the two-way radio, many cite the National Electric Signaling Company and their milestone of achieving the first transatlantic telegraphic communication back in 1907. However, others prefer to go back further and speak on the true technological discovery. In 1888, German physicist Heinrich Hertz proved it was indeed possible to send and receive electrical waves without using wires, though he didn’t truly understand its magnitude at the time. In honor of this revelation, the unit frequency, Hertz, was named after Heinrich Hertz. Continue reading “The History of the Two-way Radio – Their Evolving Benefits” »
audio conferencing Konftel conference phone system Konftel 50
Audio conferencing phones offer many advantages to your business, but shopping for a system is not always an easy task. If Konftel is your brand, one of your major concerns should be compatibility. If you are working with a traditional analogue line, a standard audio conference phone system may work just fine. However, this isn’t the case in most offices as you’re more likely to find systems that enable communications throughout the entire building.
As there are several different brands and models to choose from, finding a compatible audio conference phone only gets more confusing. Fortunately, the Konftel 50 is one of the most compatible units on the market. Here’s the rundown. Continue reading “The Compatibility You Need in Conferencing – Konftel 50” »

A leading name in the world of conferencing solutions, Konftel , has developed another contribution earlier this year with the Konftel 300.

On the surface, those claims are hard to argue as the Konftel 300 definitely looks the part with a stylish design and a list of impressive specification and features.
What makes the Konftel 300 stand out is its array of features. One of the biggest perks is the unit’s multi-connectivity capability that enables it to be connected with ordinary analogue lines, mobile phones, wireless DECT-enabled handsets and to personal computers via a USB. It can also be connected with extra microphones, wireless headsets and PA systems. These connections are made simple with the line selector that enables seamless switching between sources.

As it stands now, the madness of congested roads is costing the British economy over £15 billion while the price of motoring itself is increasing drastically. Inevitable motorway tolls, record-breaking fuel prices and the dreaded array of endless Workplace Parking Levies all contribute to the cause and the pain jabbing consumers right in the pocket.
With important business matters at hand, employees are being set off into gridlocked streets, venturing off on missions that could take up to three times longer than they expected because of the hectic commute alone. Those who have been sent off on these unpredictable journeys will attest that its enough to send you into a mental uproar. One might assume that technological advancements would have long been introduced to facilitate these meetings in a more professional and efficient manner.

Bluetooth driving legislation bluetooth headset headset
The law concerning the utilization of a mobile phone while driving a motor vehicle is rather straightforward; or at least that seems to be the case. If we have some understanding, one would imagine that a member of the government Home Office would not only be completely aware of the legislation, but fully compliant as well. Needless to say it was surprising to learn that immigration minister Liam Byrne was convicted for using his mobile phone while driving.
Byrne claimed that the call was of importance, thought it is still no excuse for disobeying the law. Even more ironic is the fact that Byrne is a former police officer. As a result of the infraction, the minister was charged with a misdemeanor and fined a total of £150.00. He also had three penalty points tacked onto his driver’s license.

There is no denying the benefits of the modern day telephone. The concept seems pretty simple to all of us as we have been spoiled with the technology for years. Still, you can’t belittle the fact that having the ability to communicate with someone infinite miles away is one of the greatest technological inventions of all time.
What’s not so great about the telephone is the expensive price that comes along with it. Roaming charges and overage on your mobile along with all the sneaky fees attached to the monthly home phone bill often make for a rather frustrating situation. Think you’ve got it bad with a costly phone bill? Well, you might think otherwise after reading this.
The Associated Press was one of the first to report the shocking story that became renown throughout the world. An 82 year old woman from Canton, Ohio was charged well over $14,000 in rent by AT&T for using one of the company’s phones. Astronomical figure – this has to be one of those new multipurpose handsets with all the features, right? Not exactly. The charges stemmed from an old rotary phone that the widow had been using for approximately 42 years. Continue reading “Beware of the $14,000 Phone” »
Siemens Gigaset siemens s795 review gigaset s795 gigaset gigaset review
We purchased the S795 to replace our aging Siemens-manufactured BT 4016 because we wanted an answering machine with dedicated keys. The 4016 was once a Which? market leader for sound quality.
The keyboard has a near ideal feel. I prefer separate keys to the ‘metal membrane’ that Siemens adopted for the SL785. The keys are reasonably sized and well separated. They operate with a satisfyingly precise click. There is none of the rubbery or wobbly feel that afflicts many cordless phone keyboards. All keys have a convincing metallic finish and are attractively backlit. The cursor/control area at the top of the keyboard is well designed. This cluster of keys looks stylish but ergonomics have not been sacrificed to achieve this. The keys are generously sized and the square cursor/control pad is raised slightly above the other keys in the cluster. Because of this, there is little danger of pressing adjacent keys unintentionally when using it. The pad has the same precise feel as the rest of the keyboard – a step forward for Siemens, because similarly shaped devices on some of their other phones can feel rather wobbly.
