D-Link Skype USB phone lets you VOIP legacy style
D-Link and Skype are showing off a new USB phone adapter to let you use those old school phones of yours that you've been looking to put to good use ever since phone jacks went out of style. For the $69 cost of the adapter you'd better have a pretty nice handset to protect your investment on, otherwise it seems the new VOIP WiFi offerings or such might be a better alternative, but the D-Link Skype USB phone does have to added benefit of still taking calls from that aging landline of yours, so if you can't quite shake the legacy yet, this might be your ticket to a smooth transition. The box can also forward Skype calls to other numbers, which ain't so bad neither.
