Free Skype This Year!

It looks like all calls from US/Canada to US/Canada are going to be free with Skype until the end of the year. No joke. It used to just be Internet-to-Internet calls, but now it's all calls (that is, now it includes Internet-to-land-line and land-line-to-Internet).

I'm SURE this is a response to AOL IM announcing that they're going to have a Skype-like service with free incoming calls.

And I'm SURE that AOL's announcement was a response to Google Talk.

Thus, Skype and Google Talk (and thus AOL IM too) are really starting to shake things up. Any bets on when land-lines will start massively disappearing? (even faster than they already are due to cell phones)
