I would say this is good news, and I believe everyone whom has accounts with skype with their phone# recorded will receive similar mail below. Basically you can call skype# then call # anywhere around the world, this could be a big potential money saving for people because some skype countries calling are very cheap and good quality sometime better than land-line, off course now a day technology improved, as you can see public phone booth disappeared and most homes now a day utilizing cell phone as their home phone, and the next generation would be somewhat of utilizing the internet, so in the future basically all you need is an internet connection then your computer turn into a phone free call everywhere.
