Google have opened up Google Talk so you can use it to make calls to normal landlines & mobiles with your computer. For the remainder of 2010 all calls to US and Canadian numbers are free. Yep, free. When you setup your account, you get some credit - somewhere between $0.10 and $1 (depending on when you signed up I think). Doesn't sound like much, but call rates for other countries (like Australia or the UK) are around the $0.02 mark per minute, with no flagfall. Some people I know have got $1 when they signed up, I just got ten cents - but that ten cents gives you a five minute call to the UK, so better than nothing...... and did I mention the free calls to the US?
