Are WebEx and Linksys Next to be Cut?

Posted by: Dave Bateman

The Cisco rumor mill is really buzzing lately and the latest is that WebEx and Linksys may be heading the way of the Flip. As you may recall, Cisco recently announced that they will be doing away with the Flip camera line and now some are wondering if WebEx and Linksys are next. These rumors stem...

WebEx and the iPad 2

Posted by: Dave Bateman

I have been using WebEx on the iPad ever since it has been available and, for the most part, I have been pretty pleased with it. The main thing I missed was being able to stream video. This was, of course, due to the fact that the iPad did not have a camera. As I am sure you know by now, the iPad 2...

Taking WebEx to the Next Level

If you are anything like me, you have been on your share of WebEx conferences. During more than one of those conferences, I have been asked to stream the video from my web cam. Personally, I don't feel that a one to two inch square of a talking head adds much to the call. It does keep people from...

About a week ago I was on the road, but still had to attend a number of  Webex meetings. One day I realized that it was just about time for a WebEx call to start and I was nowhere near a PC. If you use WebEx at all, you know you can only dial in. But, for this particular call, I needed to be able...

I found another web-based conferencing service today that looked pretty intriguing, so I decided to give it a try. It is called DimDim. It seems like an odd name for a web conferencing site, but who would have ever thought the word

Impromptu Collaboration

Have you ever been on the phone with a colleague and wish you could quickly show them something on your PC? This happens to me on a weekly basis. You can start a WebEx session if you have an account, but many times it just isn't worth the effort. All I want to do is click a button or two and share...

Cisco Offering Free Webex Accounts – Really!

How many times have you started to sign up for a "free" service only to find out that it is only a trial? Well, when I saw that Cisco was offering free WebEx accounts, I assumed that it was a trial, but I decided to check it out. It turns out it really is free and it is not a trial. So, what's...

What’s Bad For Travel Could Be Good For Sales

This has not been a fun week for people that have been trying to fly into, out of, or around Europe. No matter how advanced we become, Mother Nature seems to always be able to put us in our place. All she has to do is let off a little steam (and volcanic ash) and our lives are sent into a tail...

In the last article we took a look at a screen capturing program that lets you upload the capture directly to an FTP site so that you can easily share this information with others.  This solution requires that you have an FTP site that at your disposal. There are services that allow you to...
