Talking about Skype, Thing #7
I adore the program Skype. A friend of mine over in England introduced me to it, and now I have so many of my friends on it. It acts as an instant messenger, file transfer, and voice communication tool. It's completely free, and it's as easy as talking on the phone. Sometimes the quality is even better than on the phone, since the phone can cut out. You can also post a picture of yourself as your icon. Another aspect is that you can search for other people to talk to on Skype, so if you felt like talking to someone in say, Brazil, you can see who's available to chat in Brazil and just start calling or instant messaging them. While IMing a person, you can also insert fun little emoticons, which I love.
