Skype on the iPhone: Big Deal . . .


This would have been a much more exciting announcement if the carriers were still raking most of us over the coals with old fashioned calling/data plans. Fortunately for most of us, we’re on flat rate plans so this really does not help us. I have always been a fan of Skype and have posted about wanting them to realize they are in the communication business. I’m glad they’re finally on the iPhone and just not as excited as I would have been if they’d done it sooner. (We’ll have to wait till June to see if the hardware upgrade includes a new video camera to see if we can get the Skype video phone action working.)
