Interesting, hopefully we can also discuss 'home phones' like the new Verizon Hub.

Considering the lack of functionality of most home phones I'm surprised more appliances like this haven't been developed (albeit I think Verizon are over pricing themselves at $34.95 a month - or $10 more a month than Vonage for the same functionality).

They should be using this advanced functionality as a 'competitive edge' to win over customers.
