Skype has announced free Skypeout calls within North America to Canadian and U.S. landlines and cell phones. Remarkable.
That great sucking sound you heard was telecom margins going south faster than ever.
[Update] Om uses Malik-ian logic to opine that Skypeout isn’t really free: It’s just free until the end of the year. Okay, my friend, but let’s just say I can live with that. What I’m having more of an issue with is the discovery that my USB headset is newly kaput. Horrible timing.
