Skype and Intel today announced a joint promotion to promote
Internet calling. Consumers in the U.S. and Canada will be able to place free
SkypeOut calls to any landline or mobile number around the world on Mother’s Day
(May 13, 2007).

Intel said it is sponsoring the "Gift of Gab" promotion as
a way to demonstrate how audio and video calling are optimized when using PCs
powered by the Intel Core 2 Duo processor. The company said Skype conference calls
are now clearer and users’ PCs more responsive during calls due to collaborative
efforts between Intel and Skype engineers.
