A ShoePhone? Really?

Wednesday, September 12, 2007

Well, not really. If you thought the VoIP company and product names weren't already bad enough, the latest is ShoePhone - no seriously.

Unfortunately, it doesn't have anything to do with Maxwell Smart... or shoes. It's a VoIP conference call system, or something like that. They call it "Interactive Conversations".

It looks like you can call it with SIP at the address sip:123@ so you could use it free (I think) from an Asterisk PBX or any voip system that lets you call SIP addresses. For now, the service is free and allows up to 250 people to participate in a session (talk, listen, text-chat).

I have to say, the website is pretty confusing. I can't figure out how to use the service or software (or whether the service can be used without their software) but it looks like there might be something under there, once I do figure it out.

Way cool! Some very valid points! I appreciate you penning this article and the rest of the site is really good.
