is like a PC to PC calling client (they refer to themselves as P2P telephony network) they also have Voip (i.e. you can call someone's phone from your computer and tak to them just like you would on a phone, but through the internet). And it is totally free (except for Voip of course). So if you want to talk to somebody in some other part of the world with a pc and internet connection you can use Skype instead of calling them.

Yup, its interesting that they released this service around April 1st though, so I was actually skeptical about it... but this seems to be a very interesting way of communicating (especially all the pranks you can do).
