Although we enjoy using Skype to talk with our parents our hos in different area codes, its lousy 320x240 quality makes even YouTube look great. Good thing some developer named Jason came up with a sweet "hack"—more like a tweak—to get your Skype video up to 640x480.

Just grab the latest version of Skype for PC/Mac, and find a certain file and change the dimensions to 640 and 480. Easy peasy on the Mac, but the Windows version requires a bit more tweaking thanks to the various webcams available.
