Should I Try Skype?

Image (1) skype1.jpg for post 3654I am a little intrigued by Skype. A lot of my fellow bloggers have it and have numbers and links and whatnot on their web pages.

I’m thinking about trying it, but here’s the problem. No one who is even remotely related to me will ever know what Skype is, much less use it. Heck, I’m lucky if any of them email me. My family is just not into newfangled technology like VOIP, computers, cable TV, cordless phones and that sort of thing.

And when I’m at home, I’m going to use my regular phone for my regular calls, even if it isn’t exactly free.

Given that, is there a use for Skype? Is it easy to ping someone and talk with them briefly about an article or something in the news, etc. Does anyone I know do that? If I used it, would I ever want to call somebody? Would they answer?

Do you get telemarketing calls?

Somebody who knows, give me the scoop.
