"This is a really interesting post, and one a lot of folks should consider when revealing their entire lives to Facebook. I saw this article on Friday May 20th, 2010 - in the Economist magazine. "Executives at Facebook met to decide whether they should simplify the 170 privacy options on the social-networking website amid growing unease about the public availability of users’ personal information." Here is a link to the full article. http://www.economist.com/business-finance/displaystory.cfm?story_id=16167766 " Read more

Free International Calls On Your Smartphone

Posted by: Jim Harris on 2/16/2010

Verizon Wireless has partnered with Skype on a mobile application that will launch on Smartphones in March 2010. This will be the first time that Skype will be offered to Smartphone users by Verizon. The Skype mobile application is only for Smartphone users who have a Verizon data plan.

Key features of Skype mobile include: 
*Make and receive unlimited Skype-to-Skype voice calls globally 
*Make international calls at lower calling rates 
*Instant messaging to other Skype users  
For Verizon, this totally changes the game for its 90 million customers to have the ability to call internationally (at no additional cost) with their data plan. For most Smartphone users, to make international calls requires a more expensive data plan.
Hats off to Verizon and Skype as they continue to "raise the bar" by combining their products and services to appeal to an even wider audience of consumers.

    • I tried skype a few years ago, and found that the quality of audio was poor. I was only on a dial-up connection so maybe my speed was too slow? In any event, I am a Verizon customer so I will take a look at this... to call my friend who is stationed in Italy. I will report back if there is anything worthwhile after giving it a shot.
