Skype, the very neat VOIP client, has just announced that - at least until the end of the year, they're offering free calling to any telephone number in the US and Canada. That means that I have almost no use for my regular phone. I've been on the verge of getting a skype cordless phone anyway to try it out... this has likely pushed me over the tipping point to doing it. Hooray, Skype!
See you later $130 phone bill. Hello... $0 dollar phone bill. :)
