    they have had internet phones for quite some time now... that is some-what misleading of them to title the article as such... anyway- i think it's an awesome idea.. it's like a proxy for your phone. Instead of routing from here to there (via longdistance) we can proxy to the local area and the charges minimal... again, great idea... still hasn't picked up???
    yeah, I\'m gonna need that by friday...
