jaxtr’s $10M Booster
Telecom (particularly the disruptive type) really gets my imagination boiling.
I particularly like things like eStara: a traditional call me back play. Solutions like that bridge the gap between the early adopters and the mainstream. Imagine a situation where a website is just too convoluted for its own good and a “bail me out by phone” button that connects human to human. Sure, eStara may be a “Route around the damage” kind of play. But that’s OK.
Enter jaxtr. Just signed up for it (badge below). It makes it easy for you and me to connect by phone without me publishing my phone number to the world. I don’t know how important that is at the end of the day. People can have my tele all they want. But, it’s kinda cool to have a freebie “call me” badge that integrates so well with the social web to the degree it does.
Then there are groups like Roam4Free which is supposed to have an announcement of some kind this week. I mean, who wouldn’t want cut rate roaming!?
Phasers set to ‘disrupt’.
