Hacking Skype

I recently published a blog post on my experience in moving to Skype as my phone service. Since that time, I found an article from VOIP News that has 25 hacks for Skype. This article includes a wealth of information on how you can extend the capabilities of Skype.

For example, using a program called AudioID, it will announce the Skype user name on incoming calls. This is a great feature if you're away from your PC. Other hacks include:
  • A DIY security system
  • Recording calls
  • Enhanced voice mail
  • Integrating with last.fm
  • Lip syncing Avatar
If you have Skype, this is a must read; if you don't ahve Skype, check out what you're missing.
