The Firebox VoIP Phone. Neat because it accesses Skype. Neat because Skype Out is super duper cheap calls. Neat because anything that gets us away from monolithic telco control is most excellent. £29.95.
All you do is bung in the CD, plug the phone into the nearest USB socket and dial away. Nifty technology then digitally converts your voice through your broadband internet connection and on to its final destination – be it a fellow Skype user, a normal land line or a mobile phone. It’s easier than… er, picking up the phone!
