Enterprise Bridge

Decisions...

There are two USB telephone adapters on the market which integrate well with OS X. Parliant's PhoneValet and OvoLab's phlink. Both read and act on Caller ID. But phlink will act as an answering machine, which PhoneValet won't do yet. phlink will also do interactive speech menus, which has not been announced for PhoneValet. On the other hand, PhoneValet will also log outgoing calls, which hasn't been announced for phlink. I'm not really sure which feature set is more desirable...
