Using Google Voice all around the house. Obihai.

Techstination feature for Monday, October 17, 2011

    Using Google voice and more all around the house.    I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   Google Voice is a great way to make and receive free calls using smartphones or computers.    And now with the addition of a little box from a company called Obihai, you can use a cordless phone system to access GoogleVoice all around your home or office.   Marketing VP Sherman Scholten…

You just use your Gmail account name and Gmail password.  You put it into a configuration helper on the ObiTalk Web site and really within minutes you’ve got dial tone and you’re able to receive calls if you’ve set up a Google Voice number.”

Which is free.  The ObiHai boxes can connect to other voice over IP services as well…

A lot of the value in this type of device is that you can bring your own services to it. ”

You can find the Obihai devices at under fifty dollars.   You can find us at  I’m Fred Fishkin.
