If Skype's a good enough program for us to use to lovingly craft the auditory (and often olfactory) experience that is the Joystiq Podcast, it should be good enough for you to use for any communication purpose. But we understand that some of you may need a primer with how to get the thing running...

Weird. After making such a fuss, Sony Japan just delayed Skype on PSP services in Japan. A move with a definite knock-on effect for the rest of world.

Skype is a pretty important service for us here at Joystiq HQ. Not only does it allow us to record the Joystiq Podcast (when we can't all make it to the mysterious oil tanker somewhere in the mid-Atlantic) but it also allows us to prank call nerds.
