Nobody can argue the genius of Skype. Free Skype calls over the Internet has become so popular that China is actually thinking of banning it. But thank goodness the US has no such plans and to prove it, Actiontec has brought out the Chatterbox, a hands-free product that includes a speakerphone, perfect for conference and group calls. Chatterbox plugs directly into the USB port for easy access and features include full-duplex audio, 2.5mm headphone jack for optional headset, three status LEDs, volume and mute buttons, digital signal processing, and it should work from a distance of up to 12 feet. And all this for just $30.
