From [Martin Geddes](http://www.telepocalypse.net/archives/000686.html).
Friday: Had a 4-minute conversation with a business associate who was on his GSM cell phone in Hong Kong. Voice quality was terrible, and I really struggled to make out what he was saying.
Sunday: Had a 15-minute Skype conversation with a business associate who was on a plane somwhere half-way between Asia and Europe, using his Wi-Fi enabled iPaq. Even with the background rumble and crying babies, it was crystal clear; I didn’t miss a word.
No further comment, m’lud.
We like this. It’s what we work for – so that Skype lets you talk to anyone, anywhere – even high above the ground. (See below for a thread on Skype Forums on skyping from airplanes.)
