P2P telephony that just works

by Volker Weber

jcf has bugged everybody to download and try Skype. Just did this and received a call from him within minutes. Yes, indeed, it works very well. You can find me by name in their directory. But please, don't try to call me if I don't know you yet. :-) However, reading from their EULA:

You acknowledge that certain functions in the Skype Software are only available to paid subscribers after a free trial period of the Skype Software and Services (the "Free Trial Period") ends. Namely, you acknowledge that the ability to make and receive calls to non-paying users of the Skype Software and Services is only available as a paid subscription service (the "Subscription Services"). After the Free Trial Period ends, you will be presented with the option to subscribe to the Subscription Services. If you do not wish to subscribe, you acknowledge that you can only make and receive calls with subscribers of the Subscription Services and not with non-paying users of the Skype Software and Services. To subscribe to the Subscription Services you must agree to the terms and conditions of the Subscription Services..

Since I don't need another buddylist or another "internet phone" besides iChat, i will most likely not use the software beyond the trial period.

This is TOTALLY cool. No latency, audio quality is very very good.

I'm a very satisfied with PC-Telephone over nearly two years. But I will try Skype, to compare.

I explain difficult concepts in simple ways. For free, and for money. Clue procurement and bullshit detection.
