    I like Skype

    And if you have a PocketPC (a recent one anyways) make sure you try out Skype for the PocketPC, it is just as sweet.
    Looking for a PowerMac G4 for $500 or less USD.

    I would love to use Skype. But I have nobody want to talk to. That's why I don't bother with cell phones either. I like to type more than talk. With talking, you get that awkward dead silence that you don't know whether to say good-bye to a person or wait for them to say something. I hate, when that happens.

    Skype is a free voice chat program, it's like free telephone calls but between computers. You can call to regular phones as well but you have to pay to do that.

    I have it but nobody to talk to. It'd be good if I could get my family interested in it though.

    I use Skype to talk to family and friends. Turn out to be significantly cheaper than phone calls.

    I have Skype and I've been using it for quite some time now. I speak to friends and family all over the world. Israel, Australia, etc. The sound quality is absolutely amazing! It really is as good, and sometimes even better than a telephone's quality, as the Skype website states. Get it. You'll like it.

    Skype is really a great service. At home, I believe that I pay a total of $30 a year for unlimited local and long distance calling with a real telephone number and voicemail. This is a super deal considering the price of a normal land line ($25~ a month in my area).

    Here in Iraq, it makes for a very cheap way to stay in touch with people at home as compared to AT&T calling cards which are far more expensive.
    One last push!

    Skype seems like a good deal, though I remember it not having the best quality for calls not too long ago. Hopefully this has changed ? My wife would like to talk to her family who lives in Hungary, so I downloaded it yesterday and plan on using it over the weekend to see what the deal is with video chat over such a long distance. If it proves to be good, perhaps we'll pay for the call service too.

    The interface is nice and clean and seems easy to use. Do it.
