Veteran Los Angeles Time reporter, and now business desk editor, Jim Granelli has written an exhaustive and defining story about the state of telephone service options in the Sunday Los Angeles Times.
In the three page story, Granelli has referenced three Comunicano clients SightSpeed, MobilVox and TalkPlus, and quoted users of SightSpeed and Mobivox in story's copy. I was also quoted, as a result of my blogging efforts to cover the VoIP industry.
The story is a breakthrough story in many ways for consumer print on a daily basis because in a very well written manner Granelli has validated three points previously recognized by early adopter media and put it into the mainstream press:
1. Computers work well for calling. (Skype, Gizmo, SightSpeed)
2. Video calling is working now and is a real deal (SightSpeed, Skype)
3. Alternatives for long distance calling on mobile phones are now available. (Mobivox, TalkPlus, Jajah, iSkoot)
