Does anyone else have a problem with Skype? I know that it seems like I have a gripe with everything technology and Internet related, but that is only true for the pointless things…like Skype. Now, I can understand the use of Skype for business purposes and The Oprah Winfrey Show, but besides those two instances, it is useless. It can be argued that it is better than the phone since you can actually see the person on the other end. My counterargument with that is why would you want to? That means that every time you make a call you can’t look like crap, make annoyed facial expressions when you disagree with something the other person said, and are then forced to sit in front of a computer for more than an hour. In addition, Skype keeps long-distance relationships alive way past their expiration dates. People are starting to think that interaction through a monitor is an appropriate substitute for real life and Skype only reinforces that way of thinking. – Ruben
