Skype is not going to magically stop sucking because you made a thread about it on Channel9. A better idea is not stop the fruitless bitching and use something better, like Google Voice. Problem solved.
Does Google Voice provide VoIP and Video calling service now? I've been using Google Voice for three years, and the only thing I've ever seen it do is act as an inbound/outbound call broker for existing voice service from elsewhere. If Google Voice has VoIP and Video calling now, Google needs to fire their marketing department because I'm not seeing anything about this anywhere in Google Voice.
