Unify adds connectors, features, Android app to its unified comms service Circuit
When Unify invited visitors at last year's Cebit to test a new unified communications service, Project Ansible, it was nothing but a tightly scripted demo.Since then it's turned into a real service, changed its name to Circuit, and picked up some paying customers.
