What is Skype?
Making a phone call, even on your fancy, high-tech, super-smart cell, is so ten minutes ago. With Skype, you can talk to friends and family over the internet. Calls between Skype accounts are free; calls to mobile phones or landlines can be made for a small fee. With a webcam, you can also make video calls. No subscription is necessary with this pay-as-you-go service. You can talk for hours to your friend who lives 3000 miles away, and maybe even compliment her on her new haircut.
