Google has launched a new service that lets Gmail users make free calls from their computers to phones.
The voice service is available in the United States and Canada, and allows users to call landline or cellphone numbers from a Gmail account accessed on a computer. Google said calls within North America will be free for at least the rest of the year, with calls to other countries offered at "very low rates."
Do you plan to use Google's phone service? What's your opinion on internet phones, such as Skype? Do you still use a landline at home?
