Skype Free For the Rest of the Year?

Sure looks that way. Skype has always been free for computer-to-computer calling, and very inexpensive for computer-to-phone calling. But for the rest of the year, the latter kind of call is free within the U.S. and Canada. Yep, call any landline or cell phone for free.

If you haven't made the plunge yet, now there is no reason not to experience Skype for yourself and talk for free. You can either use your current microphone and speakers, or one of the many inexpensive USB phones available everywhere from Radio Shack to Staples to Costco to Home Depot.

A good USB headset/mic is the most comfortable, as it leaves your hands free and your shoulders relaxed... Let's face it, if you're not paying anything, you're going to be spending a lot of time on the phone.

And why pay people who give away your personal information anyway?
