Netphone

So today I went to the post office and picked up a way cool package - two Netphones :):):) I was a bit worried they'd be the wrong sort, since my brother had been sent the wrong one initially. But they were the right ones so I opened one up. Getting it going was literally as easy as plugging it in and turning it on. My brother gave me his account number and I called him and it *just worked* .. that never happens!! :)

The quality is fine - not *quite* as good as a landline, but certainly acceptable. The thing holds 112 numbers! And has its own ip address and web server built in - that's what I want, consumer electronics with ip addresses :)

After upgrading the firmware and setting its timezone, I opened Stu's up and got it going to make sure it worked. It did too, woot!

The sad thing is, I paid $80 each for ours last week, but this week they're down to $50. Oh well, what can you do?

Anyway, so next time I see Stu I'll give him his and we'll be able to call each other for free over the net :)

OK they are $50 now, but I bet there is only one is stock. I used to deal with them all the time, and when the price really goes down it usually means there is one only. You got lucky they had two :)

Yes they had run out by today :)

CC: yes I do have skype, but that requires the pc to be on. Stu and I like chatting away from our computers, and often his is not even on when we talk.
