VoIPMonitor VoIP News Roundup Yehaw

Just some VoIP news that I thought deserved some highlighting for today. So lets just jump right in.

First off I'd like to point out that the Phone tax refund is no scam. Taxpayers who paid excise taxes for Internet-based phone service, known as Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), are also eligible for the refund. The refunds range from $30 to $60, depending on the number of exemptions you claim on your tax return. So check out this article for information and a brief history on how the federal government first imposed a federal excise tax on phone services and how to get some money back.

My cousin informed me of 1500 free FON Wi-Fi routers at Giveaway Thursday: FON Wi-Fi routers, Joost and some Babelgum. I always love free stuff so do like they say, "give us some Digg love, click here. Help spread the word"

VoIP products who doesn't love them. Tom Keating brought my attention to VoIP products on QVC channel. Like Tom, I'd like to clearly state that I don't watch QVC. Tom's other news includes Skype for Mac 2.5 Goes Gold.

Jan writes about Skype Call forwarding plugin. Testing it now. Something fishy here and gives his scenario of what could happen if it falls into the wrong hands.

Todays last bit of news comes from Andy Abramson on fring and he explains it nicely at Fring Is Here so check it out. A brief description: fring uses your mobile internet connection to make peer-to-peer VoIP calls, send instant messages and talk with VoIP applications such as Skype and Google Talk, at no extra cost.

I posted an image of how fring works above. I know it's tiny, but that's why we use the lightbox script here on VoIPMonitor.net allowing you to simply click the image and see it in full scale. It works great for those over sized product images we receive too.
