Gaijin, Skype home

Found this courtesy of HK's blog in Japan. It's in Japanese, but fortunately I read that (at no extra charge to you dear reader, though getting there caused me great pain). A company called Sofnet Japan, which has an expanding national network of pay-as-you-go internet kiosks, is to introduce Skype (look at the photo - is that a Cyberphone?) at three of its eight locations in the JR (Japan Rail) station in Hiroshima. Depending on how that goes, they may do more. Now that Skype allows centralized storage of contacts (and you can log into a client as another user), it's the new Hotmail.
