Cool Tool Review - Skype

Talk to anyone in the world for free, using your computer? This sounds too good to be true, but it really is true! I was trying to arrange a conference call between myself and three associates in the UK. The thought of that phone bill was frightening! Luckily one of the UK associates suggested I download Skype. It was a fast, free, setup - taking no more than 5 minutes of my time. All I needed was a microphone and a computer. When it was time to have the conference call, my associate simply "skype-d me" and my computer started ringing. I answered the call with the click of a mouse and started the conference call. The line was clear - like they were in the next city. Amazing! I have even had a conversation with an associate while she was in China using Skype.

Where Skype has really been a life-saver though, is with the kids. My son loves playing games on the computer at the same time as his friends and they were always tying up my phone lines. His friend got Skype too, and now they "skype" and play on the computer at the same time.

You can even call a US or Canada landline for free using Skype on your computer. Or you can call ordinary phones anywhere else in the world from your computer for the price of a local call with SkypeOut.

From our sponsors *** Orlando, Florida is the number one vacation destination in the US and one of the fastest growing communities, too. Why? Start with the 7 major theme parks, add employment opportunities, leisure activities, good schools, a variety of communities like gated, golf, residential and urban, along with the year round, warm climate. If you are going to visit, bypass the 100,000 hotel rooms and stay at a convenient Orlando Vacation Rental.
