Be careful, Your iPad or iPhone can be in your Neighbor’s house

Be careful, Your iPad or iPhone can be in your Neighbor’s house.. that is how Apple’s Find My iPhone application shows. While sitting in my home I tried to test this app and my iPad is in my Neighbor’s house as per this app. I know the gps locations cannot be so accurate but I am sharing this to share that next time you loose your iPad or iPhone, think before you knock your neighbor’s door LOL

World Wi-Fi number for FREE from Republic Wireless

It is amazing how new concepts are shaping the today and future of the fast progressing world we are living in. After bringing a revolutionary idea of bringing VoIP to cellphones today I received an email from Republic Wireless to get hold of a free international number.

Republic Wireless call this a world Wi-Fi number. World Wi-Fi number is a secondary number that will be assigned to your primary domestic number and the republic wireless number. Anyone would be able to call you from any country for very cheap prices (sometime in future)

As soon as I got this, I had a question for myself. Why do I need it? Here is whatI found:

I am from India and most of my family and friends are in India. This will help me in 2 ways:
1) All my friends and family can call me for a very cheap price as Republic Wireless has offered all carriers in the world a very cheap way to pass their traffic directly to them instead of paying heavy fees to other carriers to route the call internationally.
2) I frequently go back to India to meet family and for business. While I am there the same Republic Wireless phone with the world Wi-Fi number will work anywhere where there is a wifi. India is very advanced now, even in my village (Mohtli) there are many wifi networks available. This empowers all my clients, office, friends in USA reach me directly without a need of international calling enabled on their phone.

I went ahead and booked the number of my choice for free. I even went ahead and reserved a number for my wife ( even when she is not registered with them, I think they are very generous to allow anyone). Here is the link http://worldwifi.republicwireless.com

Now I am waiting for 2012 when they will make this number available and functional. Once the feature is ready Republic Wireless will be back in touch and will let me know how to link the World Wi-Fi number with the Republic phone and my primary domestic number.

I am excited to use this new feature and technology and wish the very best to Republic Wireless.

I like innovation!
