Truckers keep connected with this free program that enables drivers to have real-time video chats with anyone who has a computer and a webcam. Even if you don’t have a webcam, you can still place calls via Skype to other Skype members, along with cell phones and even landlines.
iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch users have yet another option for keeping connected: FaceTime. All you need is one of these devices and a Wi-Fi connection, and you can keep in touch almost anywhere! If you’ve ever wanted to be in two places at once, this is the most convenient, mobile way to make it happen.
