Moore's Law and Skype Video Calling
Moore’s law describes a long-term trend in the history of computing hardware.
The law is named after Intel co-founder Gordon E. Moore, who described the trend in a 1965 paper, whereby the “law” unfolds as a self-fulfilling prophecy – a predictable path for fully realized capability of computing hardware that leads to faster speeds, lower cost, smaller components and better performance over time.
Buy a $599 device and it can be subject to obsoletism at the hands of mass-market options that sell for half, then a quarter, and eventually a tenth of the price. And, when unbeatable lower cost, high performance options are readily available, spending at the top-end can be like throwing money away, especially if you are buying a video calling system and there is no one else to call.
So with Skype video calling, you don’t have to worry about that.
- It’s free or low cost to call your friends
- It’s great quality with up to HD 720p video and SILK super wideband audio
- It’s accessible by millions of people around the world
- It’s available across many different platforms like desktop computers, mobiles, TVs and more.
So with no significant privilege to participate – you too can enjoy Skype and know, more than likely, that there will be someone on the other end who you can call.
