Computer Coaching for Seniors Ottawa
Skype is a program that lets people talk (voice conversation) to other people over the internet. This is what's known as Voice Over Internet Protocol or VOIP. You can talk with people all over the world for free if you are calling from your computer to another computer. But, you can also call from your computer to a phone for a given charge.
Skype currently has a promotion where you can call from your computer to a phone anywhere in North America for free until Dec 30 2006. What is nice is you don't have to supply any credit card. You dial the number and it connects you.
Here is where you can download Skype.
