Finally got around to trying out Skype. Amazing. I waited so long because I couldn’t imagine that it wouldn’t be a bitch to set up and use. Wrong. Took 5 min to install and set up. Typed in David’s Skype name and we’re jabbering way. Sounded like he was in the room with me. I know this is no longer new technology but I had a little 21st century flash of: “Watson, come here! I need you!”
Of course, I remember when it was cool to be able to put a phone caller on the radio. But Skype is cool. A little latency and –once in a while– some of the digital sound, but sooo much better than a regular phone line.
As soon as I figure out how to record a call I’ll post a sample. And you can have up to 5 people on at once. Made for podcasting.
So who’s using Skype? If you’re willing to chat with me as I figure this out, drop me a line at stevemays at gmail.com.
