If you’ve ever wondered if your workout routine is making you more fit – or if it is just a waste of time – there’s now an easy, accurate way to find out.
We’re working out like crazy. But are we getting in better shape?

For decades we’ve enjoyed the freedom to take our music with us wherever we go. Today we begin a new era of freedom.
The year was 1979. It was a time of big hair, big platform shoes, big bellbottom jeans and the big beats of disco music. Donna Summer, the Bee Gees and the Village People ruled the music charts. Continue reading →
Businesses have previously looked at contact centers as cost centers: an important, customer-facing cost of doing business. Over the past decade or so, that has begun to change.

DECT is used for both consumer and corporate phones. In the latter case, it can be used with a PBX (private branch exchange) and a wireless LAN to let users move around the office without losing their calls.
The standard is widely used in most countries. It works near the 1.9 GHz frequency band, where it does not interfere with other wireless technologies, like Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Continue reading →
