I love Skype. It’s probably the application I use most, if it wasn’t for Skype my company could not exist in the form it has today, spread across 4 countries (we are a mini-multinational).
When conferencing with multiple parties, the first 5 minutes of every call can be used in one of these two ways:
1. everybody is commenting how wonderful modern technology is and how amazing it is that we can see and hear each other across the world;
2. one of more parties repeat a hundred times “can you hear me?” and “no, I cannot hear you!”
I hate calls of the second kind.
