Voxox Was Made To Share - Share Location, Share Everything!

Posted by Ian LeWinter on Oct 22, 2015

When I was a kid I hated sharing. I was always happy sharing the other kids’ toys, dolls or games, but when it came to my stuff — forget about it! Where this attitude came from is anybody’s guess. My family was always generous. My friends were quick to offer anything. But when I was called upon to share, I suddenly “heard my mother calling,” gathered up my things and took off. What a brat, right?

The Influence Of Millennials On Unified Communications

Posted by Ian LeWinter on Oct 08, 2015

It’s somewhat unsettling. As Baby-Boomers reach retirement age and Generation X’ers are starting families and settling down, Millennials — babies who were born what seems like yesterday — have reached adulthood. This means they are about to take over the world!

It’s generally agreed that Millennials are people born beginning in 1982 and reaching adulthood around the year 2000. Those of us Gen-X’ers and Boomers may recall it was around this time that the Internet came into common use.

Top 10 Reasons To Download Voxox (Part 1) — You Thought It was Just Free Calling

Posted by Ian LeWinter on Apr 02, 2015

You learn something new every day. Sometimes the lessons are hard ones, like chocolate-covered coffee beans actually contain caffeine. They’ll keep you up for days! Other things you learn could just be interesting facts, like former Apple CEO, the late Steve Jobs, worked in an apple orchard after dropping out of college.

The Theory of Everything (In One Messaging App)

Posted by Ian LeWinter on Mar 19, 2015

Science is a search for answers. In my case, answering questions I didn’t even ask, let alone understand. Take Professor Stephen Hawking, recently portrayed in the film, “The Theory of Everything.” Professor Hawking states that he has been searching for “a single mathematical equation that will explain the entire universe.” I’m no Einstein, but that sounds like an elegant way of responding to a million questions.

The Mobile Apps Drain

Posted by Ian LeWinter on Mar 05, 2015

All those apps

I was getting thoroughly irritated. Whenever I tried to take a photo with my mobile phone, I got the following message:

Storage Almost Full
You can manage your storage in Settings.

Every. Single. Time. By the time I opened Settings, discovered I didn’t know what to do there, then went to my photos, deleted 50 or 100 of those, then back to my camera, the moment was long gone. (None of this made any difference, by the way. As soon as I went to take a photo, I got the Storage Almost Full warning again. Garrrr!)

Textiquette — The Polite Way to Text

Posted by Ian LeWinter on Nov 20, 2014

Recently someone I know (not me, I swear) was dumped in a text message. I think she was more shocked about how he broke up with her than she was about the actual breakup, and after seeing his cowardly approach, she and I agreed she was well rid of him. It was the equivalent of the Sex and the City episode where Berger breaks up with Carrie on a Post-It note.

Free Texts & Great Selfies

Posted by Ian LeWinter on Nov 12, 2014

The selfie has gotten a bad rap. Blame it on the “sexters” or the Narcissists. Personally, I blame the hipsters, who hate everything. You could also blame it on the nuts who take selfies with a homeless person, then text it to their friends. Can someone please tell me what’s funny about that?

When It's Important Do You Prefer Calling Or Texting?

Posted by Ian LeWinter on Nov 06, 2014

When you need to share a special moment, do you instantly start to compose a text message or do you go straight to your dialpad and make a call? A recent survey done by research firm ORC International[1] shows that over 70 percent of adults prefer voice calling to texting when sharing important news. Not surprisingly (but a little amusingly) the survey of over 1,000 adults was conducted over the phone.
