Voice Over IP explained has a very details explanation of ‘Voice over IP (Internet Protocol)’ or ‘VoIP’ as it is called for short. They explain how it works and what different services are available. The review is geared towards the American market so some services are not available worldwide. ‘VoIP’ is revolutionising communications both for the consumer and for the network provider as they are moving their infrastructure to ‘VoIP’, so this is a good article to read to get up to speed. BT in the UK are marketing ‘VoIP’ as ‘Voice over Broadband’ or ‘VoB’ as a more consumer friendly name and help users understand how works as they already understand the term ‘broadband'.

Cordless 2 in 1 Skype Internet telephone

The new Olympia Cordless DUALphone is the first cordless Internet telephone on the market, using Skype™, and is available from for £79.99 inc VAT. I think this will help break Skype away from the computer and bring this great VoIP application to the telecom masses.

Skype + Podcast Recorder = SkypeCasters has a great .PDF file with detailed instructions on how to use Skype and a few other applications to capture your conversations which you can use in your podcasts. In fact the site has a lot of information about Skype and I just found out about the Q-Card from Jyve Solutions which I hope to add to my site soon.
