Skype here, Skype there, Skype everywhere

You can't swing a dead cat here without hitting
a Skype phone. In addition to these devices, Skype users benefit from a
much improved user experience. Even Walt Mossberg of the WSJ had good things to say about the service.
Download and try it.



One device is a mouse that, when picked up, is a phone.  This is fine until the caller says "Now click on this link..."



More
than a few people have commented on the outrageous price eBay paid for
Skype, especially when one considers that making it easier for buyers
and sellers to talk may result in lost sales, as they'll complete
transactions offline, depriving eBay of its cut.
