Last year, I gave some very specific advice about giving a magicJack for Christmas. Streamlining last year’s advice*:
- Don’t give a tech gift to someone who doesn’t understand it.

- Only give this to someone who directly asked for it.
- If it’s only going to sit in a drawer, you’ve wasted a gift.

The sidebar to the right shows how this site checks for changes every day around noon for any changes to the updates. As of July 22, the firmware update files for magicJack’s Windows and Mac have shown changes when compared with previous versions. Coincidentally, the founder of magicJack died the same day.
Check out this video of the new screen interface for magicJack devices connected to Windows 7. Continue reading

Today we’re going to register and activate the netTALK duo wifi.
