Skype Blog posts interview w/ Skype CEO

Filed as News on April 21, 2008 8:05 pm

Many of us, myself included, use Skype daily as professional bloggers. In my cast, it’s just one of the ways in which I keep in touch with other bloggers, article sources, and so on – but more importantly, it’s my inbound business line and voicemail system.

The Skype Blog has an interview up with new Skype CEO Josh Silverman:

VA: Where does today’s announcement of the new calling subscriptions fit in the ease-of-use department?

JS: That’s right, we’ve just announced unlimited long-distance calling to over a third of the world’s population. For those who haven’t heard about it yet, you can basically make worry-free calls any time of the day and not be tied down by a long term contract – or high cost. You only pay a flat-rate monthly fee and you can make calls to landlines in the country of your choice to up to 34 destination countries worldwide. While these subscriptions are a great value, the main thrust was actually to make it even easier for people – not worrying about keeping the clock ticking while talking with your girlfriend in

Josh talks about his initial observations on the company, their new unlimited long-distance calling options, and other plans for Skype in the future.

    I am not happy with the latest version skype4+ and have switched back to Skype 3+, luckily I had the earlier version still in my download file. The latest version calls are dropped, have to click ‘view ‘to get to contact or history, display in Skype 3+ is simple, easy and fast, all I need to communicate . I am member of Skype for years and version 4 is worst rather than better.
