Mobile Voip App for iPhone and iPad

MobileVOIP iconA very versatile app to use VOIP on the iPhone is Mobile Voip App. It works well with certain VOIP-providers, especially with SMSdiscount and MEGAvoip.

Now I have got excellent solutions to use VOIP with iPhone and with my Fritzboxes.

Stay tuned! 😉

VOIP and Fritzbox 7170 combined with Fritzbox 6360 cable

FRITZ! by AVM logoOn the beginning of March I changed my phone and internet provider because of performance reasons: Via cable I got a faster down and up load. Now I got a Fritzbox 6360 cable. Everything works well, but my cable internet provider disabled the Fritzbox function to make VOIP. icon big 1

miCloud – My Private iCloud: Simply Done!

miappleme_Big_1I’m not really a fan of things I cannot see or touch. Therefor I’m not really a fan of cloud computing, too, but it is a very versatile tool.

So I was looking for an alternative for a longer time. On the one hand there are the expensive ones: NAS-drives by, e.g., Synology. On the other hand there are the cheap ones: External USB-drives at round about 50 Euros (1 TB) connected directly to, e.g., your Fritz!Box, but these ones are slowly and the installation is a little bit tricky for iPhone and iPad. icon big 1

Why Apple? Because It Just Works! Part 2

miappleme_Big_1As I’ve promised, now part 2 of the story why I’ve been keen on apple products since January 21st, 2011:

Soon after buying a HD7 I had to recognize that I couldn’t get all the same apps I have seen in the app store. 🙁

The biggest lack was the missing mobile navigation: Neither tomtom nor navigon had an app for the HD7 (ok, there have been the Telekom select navigon version, but I’m not a T-com customer…). icon big 1

My Apple Products, Status Quo January 21, 2012

miappleme_Big_1Within exactly one year I purchased the following apple products:

1. iPhone 4

2. iPad 2

3. apple TV 2

4. airport extreme base station

5. airport express station

Every item I’ve got was bought because of a distinct reason! In I will tell you every single reason! And I can tell you, it was a long and painful way for me to recognize that Apple products are the better way….
