Honestly, I am not a reseller for Skype, and no I am not on commission, but a recent article that I read broughy my attention to a new device on the market that could make it big (if only more handsets supported it).
As I have mentioned before, you can buy handsets that look and feel like your normal wireless phone that is connected to the PSTN (the old wire telephone system). You can also buy Wireless phones that connect to your PC via USB device, working on the bluetooth frequency range.
Well some smart company (Enustech) has created a device that works with two IM/VOIP products, one of which is Skype. You plug the device into your USB port and it communicates with your cell/mobile phone allowing you to place calls via your Mobile phone when within 50 feet of your PC. So now you won’t pay expensive cell/mobile rates and when your caller looks at the ID, it will display your own cell/mobile number.

Online auction site eBay has agreed to buy internet telephone company Skype Technologies in a $2.6bn (£1.4bn) deal.
So now Skype is owned by eBay, and I am wondering what direction it will be going now. What I don’t want to see is masses of eBay marketting plastered all over the Skype application.
But it does make you wonder what they want from buying Skype if they are not going to put their stamp on it.
