Vonage Makes Free Facebook Phone Call App 115

Posted by timothy
from the interestinger-and-interestinger dept.
crimeandpunishment writes "Vonage has developed a new application for the iPhone and Android that provides free phone calls between Facebook users. Vonage's CEO says 'Essentially, we've given Facebook a voice.' Users sign in, see a list of Facebook friends who also have the app, and if they tap on a name a call is placed ... and it will go through even if the app isn't running on the friend's phone. The calling, which works over cellular broadband and Wi-Fi, doesn't use calling minutes but will use up data."

    How interesting - a spacetime anomaly has resulted in a 286 DOS fanboy's advocacy to be posted to Slashdot twenty years later.

    Well, this may come as a shock to you, but I'm afraid today everyone prefers using machines with GUIs and graphics - and even sound, yes - as standard. We even consider multitasking to be useful. (Well, except for the iPhone users - seems that Apple could never write an OS that could manage that...)

Documentation is the castor oil of programming. Managers know it must be good because the programmers hate it so much.
