The people over at Jetstar posted a graph on their Twitter account his morning. Clearly the intention was to show that they're better than Air New Zealand when it comes to on-time performance. I'm not quite sure if it really does show that. It's no secret that Air New Zealand have had terrible on-...

Back in 2012, in my never-ending quest to geek up Tuihana Cafe, I threw together a Windows based app that takes SMS messages and prints them out on our kitchen receipt printer (read about it here). It allows our customers to make an order on their way to the cafe, without having to stand around and...

Grandstream GXV3275 IP Phone Review
Posted by ajobbins on 29-Jul-2014 09:00
ajobbins
The GXV3275 is the latest device from Grandstream Networks, a long time manufacturer of IP telephony solutions. It's fair to say the GXV3275 is worlds apart from some of the earlier IP phones from Grandstream (Does anyone remember the BT-101?), and quite possibly the best corded IP phone on the mark...
