Skypehype

16Sep04

I’m not the only one blown away by Skype. MacMinute reports that BusinessWeek reports that Alex Salkever (who write for BusinessWeek) loves Skype. Now the interesting part is Alex conclusion: “My recent test drive of Skype for OS X led me to conclude that it’s time for Apple to start a phone network — Macphone, if you like.” (referring to a major iChat upgrade I suppose)

My question is: just because someone make something good, does that mean Apple have to beat them at it? Apple is already acting very Microsoftish in many ways, I think it’s time showing Apple that 3rd party software is also a good thing. There IS a need for Apple to make good software when none exist (like with iMovie and Final Cut Pro), but there is no point in re-inventing the wheel. Dear Steve: don’t fix it if it ain’t broke 🙂
