| of Wine released by CodeWeavers with 
| (currently) limited support for many of 
| today's most popular office application and 
| games. CrossOver Office and Games for FreeBSD 
| is tested for performance and stability with

| Guild Wars...


Skype Launches SkypeKit SDK For Developers

,----[ Quote ]
| SkypeKit is described as "a collection of 
| software and APIs that allows Internet-
| connected devices or applications to offer 
| Skype voice and video calls. SkypeKit is 
| designed to work with a wide variety of chip 
| sets, operating systems, and audio/video 
| devices." SkypeKit is much more in-depth than 
| the previous Skype API that was exposed to 
| third-parties. 



Skype Sticks a Thumb in their User's Eye

,----[ Quote ]
| For a long time - in fact, from the beginning
| if my memory serves correctly - Skype has
| "promised" that Skype-to-Skype calls will
| "always be free". Well, it turns out that
| promise is worth exactly as much as any other
| promise Skype has ever made, or will ever make
| for that matter. A big, fat nothing.


Skype drops Windows Phone 7 support

,----[ Quote ]
| VOIP AND CHAT OUTFIT Skype is sending out
| confusing signals regarding its support, or
| maybe lack of support, for Windows Phone 7.
| Earlier today Dan Neary, Asia Pacific VP and
| general manager of Skype, said that the firm
| decided not to support Microsoft's upcoming
| Windows Phone 7 Series operating system.
| Neary justified Skype's decision by saying
| that the operating system had a "lack of user
| optimisation and partner support."

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
