The VoIP Internet Power Pad is a new take on an old story. Plunk a dial pad, telephone controls and audio functionality into a plug-in pad device, throw in a 6 port USB hub and bingo, you’ve got an Internet telephone which isn’t. Well it is, but it doesn’t look like one. Makes sense really, if you figure that the smarts comes from software anyway, why do we need all this fancy handset type styling? £19.98.
