BBC skips Skype

Correction: upon re-reading, the article does mention Skype. Can’t think how I missed it the first time but mea culpa anyway. This post stays to remind me to triple check before I start slagging off in future.


The BBC reports that Microsoft is planning to introduce VoIP to phone services, rather like SkypeOut. Except that it doesn’t mention Skype *jaw drops to floor*.

I’ve picked at the BBC’s SciTech reporting before (here and here) but this is just plain negligent. No matter that it smacks of a press release and skimps on analysis. Like, isn’t this just backward compatibility? What about cost?

If the BBC SciTech column were a blog it would have a google ranking of about 2. It is not their strong point.
