Google does good to the land of Oz or a mistake

Aussies make cheap phone calls through Google

By Asher Moses
Australians have been able to make cheap phone calls to landlines and mobiles using a new Google Gmail feature that launched this week for US and Canadian users.
Australians who have their Gmail language set to "English US" are able to use the Google Voice plug-in for Gmail to make calls using the microphone on their computer. The service throws down a significant challenge to Skype and traditional phone service operators.
Users start with $US0.10 credit, which can be topped up using Australian credit cards.
