Skype Calls Out, But Is the Pope In?
Skype today launched its commercial peer-to-peer (P2P) VOIP service, SkypeOut, which allows users to make low-cost calls to fixed and mobile PSTN (public switched telephone network) lines (see Skype Launches SkypeOut and Skype Plans Some Ins & Outs ).
And if he hasn't already heard, someone should alert the Pope about the tariffs - and quick. Calls to the Vatican's PSTN lines are just 2 cents per minute from anywhere in the world, so the Holy Father's Hotline might just start smokin' from today.
