With Skype you can say hello or share a laugh with anyone, anywhere. And if both of you are on Skype, it’s free. Skype generates revenue through its premium offerings such as making and receiving calls to and from landline and mobile phones, as well as voice mailing and call forwarding. Skype, based in Luxembourg, has relationships with a growing network of hardware and software providers and is an eBay company. </li></ul>
