5 thoughts on “Skype, an IM Killer?”

  1. I don’t think IM needs to worry about Skype. Probably the opposite as IM gains two-way voice. But typed p2p communication is quite a bit different from voice.

  2. I don’t think IM has anything to worry anything for now, but Skype adoption is something which is certainly very important and can have an impact on the future I think. I am pretty sure, when there are about 5 million users or more, then SKype as an IM becomes a major influence.

  3. That guy has obviously never seen iChat, much less used iChat’s AV features. I’ve had meetings from hotel lobbies while travelling, with clients all over the world, with the magic combination: iChat + iSight.

  4. Is it legal to communicate using SKYPE PC to PC from us to India ?

    My understanding is that SKYPE should be a licensed ISP (Which they may already be) in India to use it for business.

    Extract from http://www.dotindia.com/isp/guidelines.doc
    “Only ISP licensees are permitted, within their service area, to offer VOIP services”

    Any help is appreciated.
