Submission + - Cheap skype mobile (

Bronte writes: Cell phones aren't really a cost-optimal option for international calls. Which is why it is exciting that you can now get Skype on a 3G HDSPA mobile phone.

Submission + - Dutch government set up Vista complaints hotline (

Vista Magazine writes: "The Consumentenbond (that's the Dutch office of fair trading) has had it with Windows Vista's issues, and has set up a complaints hotline.

Microsoft claim they welcome the move, and is 'interested to hear' what its users think."
