Technically Speaking

Rex Dixon – Professional BlogCaster

Rebtel, Mobile ESPN, Rupert Murdoch

Posted by rexdixon on September 28, 2006

I will have some more answers about Rebtel later today. I am in contact with one of the co-owners of the company, and will get more information of their operation soon. Now Om of GigaOm.com of course has written his thoughts already on this. He also compared another service I had mentioned here the other day – JAJAH.

One thing that Om is lucky to have recruited is a great staff of contributers to his sites. He had written a late breaking story last evening about ESPN closing the doors on mobile ESPN – and first thing today – one of his staff picked right back up on it and followed up on the ESPN story!

One of the more interesting things that Om’s staff picked up on was the possibility that Rupert Murdoch is now eyeballing the blogsphere since he already has the #1 100 million user social networking site – myspace.

Skype. Yes, Rex Dixon likes it, and used their dial out service which I believe is called “SkypeOut” with absolute clarity the past two nights with calls to Germany. It was probably one of the clearest phone conversations that I’ve had in any type of phone call in a long time. Honest! Let’s not forget that I’m also on a 802.11g wireless connection.

I’ll post more items here later today as I see them; and you know.. that is of course – Technically Speaking.
