I agree, the communication giants are trying hard to compete with Skype. Vonage is like 22 bucks a month and comcast is like 20..Skype requires the computer to be on to use it at this moment as the others don't, but that is gonna change real soon. Skype calls are just pennies and only cost when you actually call, vonage and comcast charge by the month reguardless of if you make a call or not. I guess vonage and comcast are making more cash from thier operations by overcharging with a monthly fee, but Skype will get everyone else who is computer smart and penny wise! this means Skype will = nice profits as time goes by... THis emerging sector will help off set some of the growth lost by the maturing of EBAY's action sector!!!
