Free phone calls for life? Tech media and blogs were buzzing recently over the launch of ooma,
a Palo Alto start-up that’s promising free phone calling, once you buy
the $400 ooma box. In this interview with the Mercury News, CEO Andrew
Frame explains how ooma works. And he answers questions about the cost
of the box (they actually could have charged more, he says), the state
of the Internet calling industry, ooma’s security and whether now is
the right time to be launching a landline phone service. Frame also
takes us on a tour of the start-up’s Palo Alto offices, where engineers
design and work on the company’s devices.
