My friend Donna just let me know about an amazing service offered by Google, free calling to landlines in the US and Canada. I just tried it out and it works brilliantly; the lady I spoke to said that she wouldn’t have known I was calling from a computer if I hadn’t told her. This is a great alternative to Skype, which does charge you to call a landline.
This service works on both Mac, which has the required mic and speaker built in, and PC, for which you will probably need to shop for a good mic and speaker. You’ll also need reasonably fast internet service. I made the call via park wi-fi and did not experience any lags.Share on Facebook
