SHOCK and AWS: The fall of Amazon's deflationary cloud

Just as Jeff Bezos did to books and CDs, Amazon's rivals are now doing to it. Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud division is coming under attack from competitors who are using Bezos' own cost-cutting tactics against it, and it's starting to show in Amazon's financial results.

IP Communications & VoIP's insight:

Can we keep government’s hands off the technology frontier?

#vuc498 ADDASOUND: A New Name In Telecom Headsets | IP Communications & VoIP | Scoop.it
Whether on the phone, gaming, in a Hangout or video conference, at your desk or in a call-center, a headset is the optimal way to both hear and be heard clearly. They may not be glamorous, but they’re important. Yet the players in that business have been relatively unchanged for a long time. That is, until recently. For VUC489 on Friday, July 18th we will be joined by Dave Petricig, Sales Director for North America of ADDASOUND. This Danish company was founded by a team of talented engineers and designers with a history of contract  work for well-known companies, including Jabra. Dave has a long history in telecom, including roles at Kubi, Logitech, VXI and ClearOne. He will present the companies current product range, some of which we have been trying over the past few weeks.
