There is a company blatting the pages of Wired, Mac*, etc., explaining how
you can make phone calls worldwide for US$0.10 per minute. Reading the
small print I see that the US$59 price includes *two* licenses, so it's a
computer-to-computer solution.

PGP Fone <http://web.mit.edu/network/pgpfone/> provides Mac to Mac
encrypted voice over phone lines and AppleTalk today. Over TCP/IP and for
Windows coming soon. For Americians, Canadians, and US Green Card holders
only. (Flames to <mailto:president@whitehouse.gov>.)

I've recently read about several companies attempting to mate their net
connection with the phone system, allowing us to call a computer-less home
via our computers. I've yet to see such a system available to us.
