Skype 4.0 is out!

I am a huge fan of Skype and have been for a very long time, since Skype version 2.0 to be exact 🙂

Oprah uses Skype almost every other week since she started using it on her show last year.

Skype 4.0 for windows is out, with a lot of enhancements:
First, you will notice the “Windows Vista” skin to give you the look and feel of a light application.
The software is lighter, they have even removed the Skype Extra manager from running in the background like it used to before.

The new look is 100% redesigned to get you everything you need in one screen, whether standard or compact, you still get an entire view of options in one shot, very cool.

Voice and video enhanced to crystal clear and video calls are still in the same window of the person you’re calling.

Juggling between people and conversation is never easier, they kind of copied the multi-chat window idea from digsby!

One thing Skype is still missing, is the automatic update, I got a notification from my iSkoot app on my phone, but never got it on my computer, so unless you are reading the Skype blog or have iSkoot installed on your Android phone, how should people know that there is a new and improved Skype?

Also as a sneaky addition, eBay (The owner of Skype) is pushing a new FireFox plugin during the installation of the new Skype, the new plugin will dedict items on shopping websites that are available on eBay and will highlight it and compare the pricing on eBay. It’s useful for shoppers that really don’t know how to shop! For me, I uninstalled it soon after I tried it.

The new version will take some get used to time for native Skypees, but it’s worth it, I have been playing with it for 2 days now and I am loving it 🙂
You can download the new Skype here.

Doors are closing (open ASAP!)


I know you’re busy, so I’ll let you in on what’s happening…
 
I just heard from Gideon Shalwick and Yaro Starak that they are closing their doors to their popular Become A Blogger Premium course.

See here for more details: Go here.
 
So far, over 850 people have signed up and the course has already had some raving reviews. For example, here’s what Christine, one of the members, said recently:
 
“Honestly Gideon your videos are great!
 
Now that I’m looking at doing business on the internet and watched a few videos from others who claim to be gurus; theirs are really awful, too fast to see what they’re doing and not explaining things in a logical sequence as if done on the fly.
 
Your teaching skills and videos are in a class of their own. Keep up the good work!”
 
So, obviously, people are loving the course so far.
 
But now, Yaro and Gideon want to close the whole thing down since it’s becoming a bit too popular.
 
They said they want to focus their energies on their members, and frankly, getting too many of them could spread their attention too thin.
 
So, I thought I’d better let you know about this if you still wanted to get in before they shut the doors indefinitely.
 
Here’s the scoop:
 
– What: Become A Blogger Premium is closing doors
 
– When: Friday, Feb 6, 2009 at 11:59pm USA EST
 
If you don’t want to miss out on this, make sure you head on over to the following page before it’s too late:

I hope you can still get in!


PS: Make sure you have a look at the bonuses, they are worth more than the whole membership itself!
