Ever wonderd who you are talking to?
Some of the applications I have seen are fantastic examples of how people are taking Skype and extending it. This one just made me laugh so I though I would share it.
To cut a long story short, this guy was tired of random guys adding his girlfriend to their contact list looking for a date, so he decided to get revenge.
To do this is put a picture of an attractive girl in his profile and put Skype in Skype-me mode. Within a few minutes he would have a few guys take the bait and attempt to chat him up assuming that he was a she. The clever part was he had written an application that that would forward the messages, calls, files etc to one of the another unsuspecting guys who had also taken the bait.
The result would be two guys chatting each other up both assuming they were chatting to a girl. Take a look at: pranked.hopto.org
You have to admire some peoples cunningness and ingenuity.
