Retro Skype Handset

digital_01.jpgJust found this cool old-fashioned Skype phone via Jaanus. I use a Hulger at my desktop (and sometimes out in the garden
on the laptop) . I like the old school style. But unlike this Bakelite
styled phone from Digital Cowboy, the Hulger doesn't have a cradle

Whereas the Hulger P*PHONES are actual audio devices which you hook
up as you would any microphone or headphone, in an audio jack, the Digital Cowboy 'USB Classic Telephone' is a USB (1.1) mic. (site in Japanese)

been after an old-style phone for while now (there's place up the road
from here that sells them in Islington), but what i really want is a
Batphone that lights up too! Maybe Digital Cowboy will make one? I think they would sell like holy batcakes, Robin! 🙂

Who is this ‘kosso’ anyway?

I am a 'Createc'. A creative technologist, entrepreneur/ hacker/ geek. Worked on building things on the web for over 12 years.

Used to work at BBC News interactive and created the publishing and delivery systems for video news to get distributed on huge screens in major railway stations around the country.

I left the BBC to become CTO / sole-lead architect/developer at for three years.

I have now left them to build a start up a new system called 'Phreadz', which is a 'Social Multimedia Conversation Network', integrating everything that is 'V.I.T.A.L' to us on the web. Video, Images, Text, Audio and Links.

I built the whole thing my myself. I programmed every line of code and positioned every pixel. I'm looking forward to attracting an hiring new members of the team to help me out! :)

There are currently over 1000 happy and helpful beta testers on the system so far and one client of a white-labelled solution.
