All the hype about Skype

With everyone talking about how great Skype is I thought maybe it was time we give it a shot over here at The Daily Thing.

I’ve got to say, I’m mightily impressed. Unlike some VoIP clients we’ve tested in the past, Skype is easy to install, easy to use, and requires no configuration to your system or firewall. The sound is clear and strong, almost as if you’re talking to a person in the next room.

Unlike some other VoIP’s there’s no specialized hardware, other than a microphone and a pair of speakers, necessary and it even works well on Mac’s (even though it is still in beta for OS X).

Awesome. Gotta love it.
