It often seems that anything George dubya Bush does Tony Blair does next. Well on a recent visit to Estonia their prime minister, Andrus Ansip, decided to give President Bush a Skype phone. Jaanus reports on the skype blog that it was a top of the range Phillips VOIP841 cordless DECT handset which can be plugged straight into your router. George doesn’t even need to turn his computer on to make calls. If Tony gets skyped up too the government can save a few quid on our taxes!
Personally I use a Motorola ME4052 with a USB skype dongle. The advantage of this is that I can accept both land line and skype calls on the same DECT handset. It does mean I can only skype when my computer is turned on – but hey, it’s hardly ever turned off 😉
