As part of "Le Défi Cisco" I'm had the chance to coach a start-up with a fantastic idea. I was asked to write a post for the Huffington Post to highlight how Handisco's concept fits in the "Internet of Everything". The post was initially written in English for ImpactX: A 'Smart Stick' Puts The Internet of Everything In Service To The Blind and translated to French: Une canne intelligente met l'Internet of Everything au service des ...

Start with something simple. Its much much easier to make a great product if you have something simple.

Dedicated servers providers like Online.net are now proposing to address Virtual Machines by using static mac, but the configuration is not 100% "clean" on quite a few OS (see my upcoming post on how it works). Hopefully, it's pretty straightforward on OpenBSD, let's assume $if is the interface connected to the Public Network , 88.190.xxx.xxx is the IP address (also called FailOver IP) given by your provider and 88.190.17.1 is the gateway. ...

In a previous article I explained how to configure Asterisk  sRTP support, but using a development version at the time. Since Asterisk 1.8 there is a native support for sRTP, so no need to have some development version. Moving from development to 1.8 a few things changed in the configuration (not much), here is a quick update Step 1: Pre-Requisites On the sRTP side we still need the libraries (which can be found here) otherwise you will ...

I needed a shot to play around with PhotoShop, Caroline was working next to me so she became the subject :) The idea was to edit the photo in order to have everything in black and white except Caroline and the computer screen.

I must admit Orange showed us the perfect example of how to not anticipate... As you probably know yesterday was the new iPhone launch (4th launch for Orange France). I had pre-ordered mine on the 22nd of June with Orange got shipped on time and delivered yesterday. On the logistics side they did quite well. I couldn't get mine on the 24th as I was busy so it arrived at Cisco for me and waited until Friday. On Friday got it, unpacked it, ...

I got my new iPhone 4 yesterday, despite a catastrophic SIM activation (thank you so much Orange...) it's now working. In case you didn't follow what new features were brought in this new version Apple is trying to revive the video conferencing through a feature called FaceTime, but why would they succeed when the video calls never really took off?
