"Too Sexy for my Mac"

August 28, 2009  |  By clydeostephens

 |  Version: Skype 2.8.0.659

Pros

Same quality skype-to-skype calls. Same easy to use contact list. Same good performance, even on a sometimes slow AT&T connection.

Cons

The new notification sounds are really terrible, add your own. No matter what I do I get a plethora of sex worker contact request all day long. I block them but they just come back under a different user name.

Summary

I would really like to revert back to the previous version to get rid of the constant contact request from the professional sex workers.

"The Free Version is Better than the Paid"

July 29, 2009  |  By Alex Hallatt

 |  Version: Skype 2.8.0.659

Pros

I love Skype to Skype on computer. The connection is sometimes lost, but you can usually have a good conversation.

Cons

The paid version is terrible. When I use Skype to call landlines, the quality is awful. People on the other line can barely hear me.

Summary

Skype great for computer, rubbish for landline.
