Nothing has yet replaced the ritual of picking up the phone and dialing a number to have a conversation, however the Internet does provide possibilities for making the calling process more flexible, and more affordable. Today we are going to look at Skype, an Internet Phone application currently going through a free beta-test, and generating a lot of buzz. We'll also examine how Internet telephony works, and why you should care.
