Yesterday I’m sitting in a meeting a large office building, killing time waiting to leave to catch my train. I wanted to call someone, but didn’t want to waste my cell phone minutes and could not use the phone in the building to dial long distance. Guess what – using WiFi I logged onto Skype and made a FREE call.
