Happy Birthday YouTube!


Happy Birthday YouTube! Did you know that while the online video giant’s official birthday is February 14, 2005, it was exactly five years ago today that the very first video was uploaded? Well if you didn’t, now you do. The video was titled “Me at the Zoo,” shot by Yakov Lapitsky. It was just 19 seconds long and featured one of YouTube’s founders, Jawed Karim, at the San Diego Zoo . . . and it marked the beginning of a new way to share and view video online. As a business, Ipswitch, Inc. has come to rely heavily on YouTube to help distribute content – from tutorial videos to viral videos – about our WhatsUp Gold product. If you haven’t already, check out our library of video on the IpswitchWhatsUpGold Channel. You’ll find an extensive list of tutorial videos walking you through nearly every aspect of our product. As always, […]

Customer Feedback: WhatsUp Gold Has the Power to Stop Your Phone’s from Ringing


As President of Ipswitch Inc.’s Network Management division I have had the opportunity to speak with many of our customers about their experience using WhatsUp Gold. Now, because WhatsUp Gold can be deployed and utilized in a variety of ways, each new story I hear varies from the last. But I have noticed a few common themes over the years.
