Skype has been around for awhile, I even downloaded it sometime ago but never really explored its' features or the convenience of it. Recently, I received a new invitation to join the Skype community and I have to tell you it is one of those "killer applications" you should have on your PC.
In a nutshell, Skype is a voice application which I can liken to instant messaging. People who are in your contacts list can see when your on your computer, you see them, and you can talk over the internet. O.K., heres the best part..........it's FREE !! Anywhere in the world. The sound quality is wonderful, and you basically can hold a hands-free conversation, even while doing other things. If you're one of those folks that has a webcam, you can even turn on the cam and see each other while talking.
Now think of it, how much time do you spend in front of your computer ? I know I spend an "inordinate" amount of time in front of the tube and this is a great way of staying in touch with folks.
Now I know some of you are saying "Yeah,but I don want to be bother with a voice call" while on
my computer. No problem......you can just set yourself as unavailable. For those of you that don't like to type, Skype is the answer, now you can talk to your circle of friends and associates.
WCS is using Skype, and you should consider taking advantage of it too !!
