Skype is a free Internet telephony program, which means it can make telephone calls, on your computer. Over long distances, across the Internet. And all for Free.

Here’s how to get calling, using Skype: turn on your computer speakers, plug-in your microphone to your computer, download Skype, create an account and go.
You can download Skype for free on both Mac or PC. Creating a Skype account is free but you’ll need a friend – or someone to receive your call – who also has Skype. This is a game changer for paying for a landline telephone.
Skype works pretty well, most of the time on a fast Internet connection. One reader even reported Skype working with a faint connection for his IM services. ” I was stuck in LA with a dead cellphone and a poor wifi connection. Skype saved me.”[via Skype]
