"By this winter, the company plans to roll out more pay features such as voicemail, videoconferencing and SkypeIn, which will let people place calls from a telephone to Skype software users and will allow Skype users to choose a phone number with any country or area code they like - a key advantage to date of VoIP services such as Vonage and AT&T CallVantage. Skype doesn't take its millions of users for granted, employing their suggestions to drive product development and even calling on the most vocal users as beta testers."

Don't Type - pick any form of communication you could possibly want to use to get a hold of me and do that... although that isn't as catchy, maybe I better leave the marketing to the pro's...
