Skype 4.1 Update Tip

Skype released version 4.1 for Windows today however they forgot to update their servers & download links.

All Skype website download links for version 4.1 only download version 4.0.

Best to wait until Skype gets this sorted out.

Update: Skype download links for 4.1 are A-OK now.

Screensharing is the best new feature.

Skype 4.1 MIA

Polycom released new Beta software today for the Polycom C100S. If you use Vista, Skype and a Polycom C100S you will want to upgrade.

Does Ray Does Use Vista?

Ray Ozzie the Chief Software Architect at Microsoft uses a Polycom C100S hands free communicator for Skype.

This has best hands free audio for Skype I have used. Perhaps Ray does not use Vista. Unfortunately Polycom has never bothered to update their drivers for Vista.

What a shame. I need to call Oprah, she understands Skype.

Some thoughts for my friends who are not yet using Skype.

1. Do you want a Fee Phone or Free Phone?
2. Call Free PC to PC.
3. Lower call costs to Fee Phones.
4. Video conference free.
5. Text & send files, when talking.
6. See online status before calling.
7. Share PC screen when talking.
8. Send secure files PC to PC + files too large to email.
9. Best call quality.

Skype more than just talk…
