Skype

Skype is very impressive. I enjoy making free computer to computer long distance calls. Computer to phone calls are also very inexpensive with ‘SkypeOut.’ You can even get a ‘SkypeIn’ phone number so that folks who don’t have a computer can call your computer.

I’m using a Plantronics’ headset (DSP 500) plugged into a D-Link USB 2.0 Hub that is plugged into the back of my iMac. Mac OS X (10.4.2) makes my computing life easy and fun. Setting up the headset was plug-and-play. I plugged the DSP 500 in and then selected Plantronics Headset as my sound input/output device in Mac OS X System Preferences. That’s was it; less than a minute from start to finish.

If you haven’t already checked out Skype, there’s no better time than right now.
