  1. Skype has announced the release of a new beta that updates its group video calling feature with support for up to ten simultaneous users -- up from five on the previous beta. The feature is being offered as a "free trial," but users will eventually have to pay for the service, which will likely be aimed at companies looking to increase productivity while reducing expenses by enabling face-to-face communication with employees, customers and partners remotely.

    10 way video chat sounds like a good way to really bog down your internet connection. not to mention the people would look really small on a laptop screen.

    Stop scouring for things to complain about. It offers up to ten-way video conference...you don't have to fully utilise a positive new feature.

    10 way video chat would be awesome on an lcd tv and a descent connection. Online SGI anyone?
