    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    Okay, Dan, I tried calling you but you were off line. If you want to call me on Skype it is Charles.Plesums

    The quality of audio-only calls through the computer is better than any of our speaker phones, so we use it for calls to land lines at less than 2 cents per minute to anywhere in the world.

    One of my cousins reads bedtime stories to his grandkids by video across the country.

    When we travel (even internationally) we call home for free or almost free, using the hotel internet connection.

    Did I say I like Skype?

    A microphone and speaker, as usually built into a laptop computer. If you want the free video calls, you may have to buy a separate camera/mic - good ones are less than $50, Cheap ones a low as $25. The Skype software is free, calls are free to other skype users. If you want to call a landline, put $10 on deposit, and use it at less than 2 cents per minute
