 No, but if you did this and posted it online you get HUGE traffic! I
posted only one or two items about Magic Jack over the months and they
generate constant page views. I don't really undertand why.

Some folks are going to what I think are considerable efforts to make
the Magic Jack USB device work with thin clients so that they don't
need their PC on 24/7. That's a lot of effort. If someone published a
way to make a plain old ATA word with MJ you might even force them to
change their operating practices.

Remember that their little client gets fed adverts and they track all
your calling habits in order to target those adverts. You call Domino's
to order a pizza and they're likely to show you a Papa John's ad next
