Skypecasts for Mac users
Skype launched a new product last week, Skypecasts. Skypecasts allow people all across the world to meet and discuss shared interests — anything from holiday ideas and new gadgets, to online gaming and the best ways to spend a Sunday afternoon. Skypecasts are moderated by the ‘host’ who is able to mute, eject or pass the virtual microphone to participants when they wish to speak.
Hosting or participating in a Skypecast is completely free, plus Mac users with version 1.4 can take part in Skypecasts.
