    "No one responded to my Skype invite"

    October 12, 2011  |   By haf canadian

    Pros

    easy to load on multiple devices

    Cons

    if everyone is using Skype, as hyped, and it's so great, how come no one responded to my initial invite? Probably because even though I know several people that have it, they don't use it often enough to check their site, and never saw my notice.

    Summary

    Excited to jump on board 2 weeks ago, not so enthused now since others apparently aren't utilizing it as much as they said. I can't attest to technical aspects of Skype since I haven't actually been able to use it... the door's open but no one is home scenario.

    Now if only CNet would give us time to actually use the products before clamoring for us to review them! Very annoying, and the "Review" windows are clumsy and slow to load on older computers running Windows XP. CNet needs to streamline things, and not design windows using software capable of high data creations, and expect people with less capable machines to be able to readily process the monsters the site designers build. Ditto for Dell and Verizon.
