Skype – P2P Voice over IP from the KaZaA team

From the Skype site (URL below): “Skype is the next phenomenon from the people who brought you KaZaA. Just like KaZaA, Skype uses P2P (peer-to-peer) technology to connect you to other users — not to share files this time, but to talk for free with your friends.” Well, according to the &#39holy grail&#39 feature set they list, (hassle-free setup, works through firewalls, enrypted voice, better audio quality than telephony) then this is probably worth checking out… I just hope they haven&#39t missed the boat… people would have killed for this in the mid-90&#39s when Voice-over-IP was hot and VoxChat, iPhone, and some of the other radical companies were breaking new ground. If this works as promised, then someone will have to outlaw it… always a good test! [Thanks to Alex Singleton for the URL]
