Don’t know how I would survived without SKYPE – join them 2007 – when living in Belfast. Would never be able to keep contact with my friends, specially in Sweden – but also around Europa and North America through the years.
Of course it’s a Swedish invention:
Skype is a company active in the field of Internet-basedcommunications, especially VoIP. The company was founded in 2003 by Swedish entrepreneur Niklas Zennstrom and DaneJanus Friis, which previously built a record of file-sharingprogram Kazaa. In September 2005, bought the American Ebayup Skype for at least 19 billion – the price can depend on itseconomic development over the next few years amount to 31billion. This made Niklas Zennström one of Sweden’s richest men. On 1 September 2009, confirmed Ebay that they sold 65 percent of Skype for $ 1.9 billion to Silver Lake Partners,Ventures, Marc Andre Essence investment fund, Andreessen Horowitz, and to a Canadian pension fund.
Skype is also the name of the company’s product / software. Thiswas written by Estonia-based developers Ahti Heinla, PriitKasesalu and Jaan Tallinn, which also initially had developed Kazaa. The Skype Group is headquartered in Luxembourgwith branch offices in London, Tallinn, Tartu, Stockholm, Prague, and San Jose, California. Microsoft bought Skype for nearly55 billion May 10, 2011.
I have a SKYPE phone number as my main phone number and I don’t have to have the computer on – to be able to phone or make a call. Fantastic. For £10 a months for I subscribe the number and unlimited calls to land lines in Europa. SKYPE …. are making the world much smaller
Today when somebody on Facebook want to chat with me and I’m not logged in – they reach me through SKYPE. Brilliant!!!!
So it’s not only good to talk … it’s very cheap too and can be totally free. Just get it !!!!!!
