Skype is becoming more popular than ever as a means to communicate with friends far away. But trying to use your computer as a phone can be a hassle. A cheap Skype phone will eliminate this problem by interfacing with the Skype software and allowing users to call the friends in the same way they would use a normal landland phone. The best USB Skype phones can store numbers and have speed-dial buttons built in. There's even a Skype phone which functions as a conference phone, allowing a distant user to speak with a room full of listeners.
