Time to call that long-lost aunt in the middle of absolute nowhere: Skype's just announced that you can now claim a whole month's worth of unlimited free world-wide landline and mobile calling—but only if you claim it by end of today.
We're not sure if many people actually make phone calls these days, but hell, free's free and while, yes, there is a ‘fair usage policy', it seems pretty generous. You'll have to attach some sort of payment system to your account, just in case you want to use it after the month is out, but otherwise no strings are attached.
The scheme covers both landline and mobile calls in the US, and international calls to over 40 countries. Jump on over to Skype to claim your free calling now, before the end of today. [Skype via Ubergizmo]
