What the heck is Skype?

[Media Source*]

(Hat Tip: AngyChan)

Photo from Skype.com

Skype is for calling other people on their computers or phones. It’ll let you make free calls to your friends all over the world. And we don’t want any money for it. It’s free.

You could think of us as the big, free Internet telephony company. We prefer to think of ourselves as a big group hug, even a present. Yes... that’s it...we’re a present...but without the ribbon.

So I downloaded it and have experienced it's joys for about ten minutes at max. This may be useful for contacting people in Iran though...

And it doesn’t just work on Windows, like some other software you may know. Skype is also for Mac OS X, Linux and PDAs using Pocket PC, with a native look and feel for each platform. Talking, sending instant messages or even file transfers work between different platforms like a charm.

There is a catch to this though...
If there weren’t enough ways for you to contact your friends, we have a little thing called SkypeOut. It lets you make calls to old-fashioned phone numbers all around the world. Landlines, mobile phones...it works with almost all of them. SkypeOut is not free but it is pretty cheap, actually. You can read more about SkypeOut if you wish.

Maybe I'll stick with it...maybe I won't. Either way it will become another chat program that I own. Selah.
