CallWave is described as "free Internet answering machine software" that lets you use one incoming phone line for Internet access and for regular voice access. If you're on the Internet when someone calls on that line, the caller hears your announcement and can leave a message - which you can hear through your PC's speakers at the same time. Your phone line must be equipped with your carrier's Busy Call Forwarding feature.

Centrepoint Technologies offers the TalkSwitch desktop phone systems that provide PBX-like functionality for small offices and home offices.

Electronics for Imaging offers the PrintMe Network, designed to let remote and mobile workers "print documents from their personal computers, personal digital assistant (PDA) devices, two-way pagers and even cell phones by simply "dialing" in to any printer on the PrintMe Network." While the idea is intriguing and could solve the frustrating problem of getting files printed while out of the office, its success depends on EFI's ability to sign up participating providers so their printers are on this "virtual network."
