ANPR Surveillance Helicopter Tested

ANPR Surveillance Helicopter Tested: "Within the U.S., two cities are using the technology in a device called 'Bootfinder' to identify and tow vehicles with unpaid parking tickets or even overdue library books. One woman's car in Connecticut was towed out of her driveway because she had $85 in unpaid parking tickets. Legislation is pending in Texas to allow the use of RFID to scan and ticket passing motorists who have expired automobile insurance."

Skype just made all calls free. Previously you had to buy credits which were already very inexpensive. I wondered what eBay was going to do with Skype :)

So, to reiterate. Anyone in the US or Canada can download skype for free, register for free, and CALL for free to anyone in the United States or Canada for the rest of the year.

This is likely a market test to see what happens. However, we might be looking at the new "gMail for phones", brought to you by skype and ebay...

Plus, that's GOT to be a great name to register. Who knows, maybe google will see it and make a decent offer :)
