Skype dont believe the hype

Imagine Flavor Flav singing that... 





So reading a blog post today by Oli Barret got me to thinking about how I take for granted technology that to the man in the street could be similar to a rocket powered car that guides itself, so VOIP has it really taken off ? When I went to Japan a few years back I took a laptop and used Skype to call my son, every day over the wirless networks available for free there, so the total cost for my calls was a few pounds, well to call from Japan to England every day for 3 weeks, that was a bargain.
So Oli had done some research that showed only 12% of the UK population had used a Voice over IP (VOIP) service such as Skype, in the home and this compares to 20% who had used a social network. This to me was an amazing low figure considering the low barrier entry price point, robust technology and simple to setup and use....
Thus set me off thinking on a tangent, why don't Startups buy more Sun ? Same as Skype a la VOIP they don't know about it as such, or what it can offer and how it can change their lives, whilst saving them money, so go sign up now, and change your life....
