Skype beta released for Mac OS X
August 31st, 2004

Skype has released it’s first beta delivering VoIP for Mac OS X. That might not be earth-shattering to most, but for Mac users, it’s been a longtime coming. Yes, we have iChat, which sports video conferencing, but it doesn’t perform well behind firewalls and doesn’t allow you to call traditional telephones. (Skype’s prices for those calls begin at about 2 US cents per minute.)

This new release lets a diverse range users to call Windows, Linux, Mac OS X and Pocket PC users for free. This might not sound like much of a feat. But with megacorporations like AOL, AT&T, cable companies and other Bells, soon entering the fray with their VoIP efforts, every user you can get now might provide a much needed advantage.
