We will give the group a presentation on VOIP, specifically 3
- Google Grand Central ==>
www.grandcentral.com/home/intro (a free service that
allows users to manage all their phone numbers but more important,
also make FREE long distance US and Canada calls from any phone
(even land lines). I have used this for over a year and I am very
satisfied. My Grand Central number is 713 893-1942.
- Magic Jack ==>
www.magicjack.com ($20 for the device and then $20 per
year. Free calls to anywhere in US and Canada. Can be used anywhere
in the world, meaning if someone in Asia, Europe, Latin America or
anywhere can call anywhere in the US and Canada because they will
have a US or Canada phone number). Requirements are: Broadband
connection (requires at least 80 kps), USB 2.0 port, and at least a
P3 processor, XP or Vista OS (Mac and Lunix coming soon), can be
used with dialup provided the other party has a Magic Jack. I have
been using mine for over 3 month, and I am very satisfied.
- Skype ==> www.skype.com
(I use a Phillips hand set to call friends in Asia, Europe and Latin
America). Free call to other Skype accounts, can get a phone number
and use as regular telephone at an extra charge. Had my Skype
account for over 3 years and I am satisfied with the quality and
This presentation should take about 30-40 minute. I will need to
connect my system to the network (internet) because I don't know if the
system in front has a USB 2.0 port.
I would like to also give another presentation, at a later date on
Computer Security - Beyond Anti-Virus and Spyware Protection. This
involves using two freeware products: TruCrypt and
PasswordMaker. I will show the group how to protect their personal
information or any file(s) by password protecting an encrypted a
"container" file and how easy this can be to maintained.
We'll see you tomorrow with VOIP hardware and presentation!
