On this very day in 1877, the first home telephone was installed. At the time, the rectangular wooden box created by Alexander Graham Bell was monumental, marking a whole new way for families to stay connected. Fast-forward to 2013, where smartphones are the norm and technology is constantly transforming how we communicate with one another. Today, there are a variety of ways to stay connected, whether it’s through voice calls, video calls or computer calls.
As the times are changing, Logitech is constantly evolving its technology too, offering several ways for people around the globe to stay connected:
- For the most natural video calling experience, whether with your child in another state or your parents living in another country, the Logitech TV Cam HD is a perfect solution. It plugs right into your HDTV’s HDMI port and sits on top of your TV; all you need is an Internet connection. With Skype built in and a wide-angle lens, it’s easier than ever to stay connected with family and friends around the world from the comfort of your couch.
- The Logitech Broadcaster Wi-Fi Webcam is another great option. Being cordless, the webcam allows for a variety of angles and viewing positions, so you won’t feel restricted while engaging with family, streaming a live performance of your band or hosting a chat on Ustream®.
- If you’re one for staying connected without the added face-time, the Logitech UE Mobile Boombox is perfect for you. While it’s a powerful speaker, it also doubles as a speakerphone with a built-in mic. The Boombox seamlessly goes from listening to music to taking a hands-free phone call. Its portable size allows you to take it wherever you go, so you can chat with friends and family, then get back to the music without missing a beat.
