Looks like we have another case of he said, he said in the blogosphere. In one corner is Adobe's Andrew Shebanow.

If you caught my blog and video yesterday, then you'd know I was having some difficulties getting Newsgator's OPML export process to work. Today, from Newsgator Technologies Inc.
Another nail in the coffin for the Baby Bells? Skype offers unlimited annual calling for next to nothing
Perhaps signaling the next phase of extinction for the Baby Bells, Skype today released a new pricing strategy for using its software or Skype-certified hardware to make outbound calls to just about any phone number in the US and Canada. For consumers and businesses that sign up for the service by the end of January 2007, they'll be able to make unlimited outbound calls to any number for a flat fee of $14.
Last week, on the Dan and David Show, although the service is still an early prototype, my colleague Dan Farber heaped praise on Google's RSS reader (imaginatively named Google Reader). I decided to finally give Google Reader a look but wanted to save myself the trouble of having to manually reload everything I'm currently subscribed to through the RSS reader that I currently use: Newsgator.
Anybody who has ever used a search site like Google or Yahoo knows that there's room for improvement in search. But just how much?
Google, the company who's internal motto is, infamously "Do No Evil," is getting some grief from some popular bloggers as well as customers of its automated keyword-based advertising system known as Adwords.

When most people think of big successful IT companies, names like IBM, HP, Sun, Intel, Oracle, and Dell come to mind.

My colleague Dana Gardner who, along with me, attended some presentations given yesterday by some of the folks at Sun's Labs may not agree with my assessment. But yesterday, I'm fairly certain I saw for the first time since I started writing about technology in 1991, a communications technology that makes you forget that the communications taking place are being assisted by technology: and a rocket science-like technology at that.
In case you missed it, here on Berlind's Testbed, I posted an entry on a new company called Code Green Networks the other day. Whether or not you find Code Green to be worth your attention, that blog post is worth a second look because (1) you're going to see more of that sort of multimedia editorial packaging here on TestBed and (2) I think ZDNet is either on or near the tip of the spear when it comes to where blogo-journalism is headed.
If I can avoid ever staying at a Hyatt again, I will. Last night, I stayed at the Hyatt in Downtown Rochester and being that this is sort of a hi-tech town, I naturally assumed that this hotel, like the many others I've stayed at, would offer Internet connectivity in its rooms.
