RocketBoom Almost Makes Me Famous?

I was just catching up with my RocketBoom viewing and the 12Feb07 edition started off with what I originally thought was my ground breaking CountryWest-MP3 background track made popular in podcasts for TechNewsRadio.com.

Unfortunately, I forgot to publish it, making someone using my version highly unlikely unless they had PaulDotCom hacking skills.

So, reality has sunk in, and it is highly more probable that someone ended up using the same sound bed in Apple's GarageBand with Harmonica tracks in a pretty similar fashion.  Bummer ...

EVDO Router Refences Mentioned In Podcast

A recent Kevin Devin's In The Trenches podcast discussed the following email I sent in to him and George Starcher on the topic of EVDO wireless routers:

Here is some background if you want to chat about it (sorry I would send in some audio comments but I can't get any recording done today) ...  I have both the Junxion Box JB110b and the Kyocera KR1.  But I've been using the Junxion box for nearly a year but the Kyocera for only a couple of weeks.  I'll travel with the Kyocera this week and I'll have more to say about it later.

  • JB110b:
    • supports EVDO and other services like from AT&T/Cingular
    • ruggedized case (ideal for industrial or field operations)
    • can route/load balance from broadband Ethernet (DSL, Cable, etc.)
    • WI-FI features seem advanced
    • network mgmt features available
    • one thing I don't like is the power brick
    • 2 Ethernet ports (but only one for client if you are route/load balancing)
    • ~$599
  • KR1:
    • EVDO only (with support for select EVDO cellphones)
    • consumer looking router (I think is is actually OEM'd from D-Link
    • can not load balance or route
    • WI-FI features don't seem as robust
    • weight is less than the Junxion box
    • comes with a car power adapter and better designed power brick
    • 4 Ethernet client ports
    • ~$299

One of the more interesting thing for me is both units are using open source software as the operating system (OS) on the units and each has a pretty good web interface (not great but better than some).

On the topic of business continuity, I think the Junxion Box would be ideal for that.  It is an idea I am proposing internal at my work.
