The folks at Skype in a absolute amazing marketing move has made calling any United States or Canadian telephone number a free call. That’s right you can call any land line phone from your computer for free. This is HUGE, the calls had already been cheap but this opens up Skype to those that may have been resistant to depositing credits for the account. [Skype]

    Todd, darling. I was excited when I read that I could make free calls to US and Canandian landlines. Though you neglected to mention in your post that this applied only to calls made from the US and Cananda.

    I know it’s only took a littl bit of reading of the page you linked above, but maybe it’s worth remebering that not all of your listners and readers are American or Canadian.
