And some people are VERY addicted to talking on the phone! (Such as my almost 9-year-old daughter.)
Skype made a cool announcement yesterday:
San Jose, CA, May 15, 2006 – Skype®, the global Internet communications company, today announced that all US and Canadian-based Skype customers can now make free SkypeOut™ calls to traditional landline and mobile phones in the US and Canada. Previously, Skype users in both countries were required to pay for Skype calls from their PCs to traditional telephones. Free SkypeOut calls to the US or Canada will be available to US and Canadian-based Skype users until the end of the year.
So- I'll be expecting my phone calls from Decoder Ring and All Axis Radio any time now... as I don't have Skype. ;-)
