Skype Grows Up

Skype isn't just for pimply-faced teens to talk while playing video games. It is an actual telephony/video service worthy of business. Don't yet believe it? Microsoft's Skype in the Workspace could prove you wrong. This service is just moving out of beta and now has some 500 customers.

Skype is becoming a useful tool for business on its own and through integration with Lync, is a pretty interesting enterprise option.
