Skype boycotts old version of it’s clients


As we look ahead to the future, we‘re focusing our efforts on bringing the latest and greatest to the most recent versions of Skype. As a result, we are going to retire older versions of Skype for Windows desktop (6.13 and below) as well as Skype for Mac (6.14 and below) over the next few months.

Hard times awaits me… since I’m still using version 2.8.something of their client on my Macs!

goodbye flip4mac

Microsoft, Software


The other day I quickly closed the window asking me to update my Flip4Mac Player installation. Early this morning I went to their website and discovered that the software now is pay-only, while in the past the basic player was free (as in beer) and there was a path of pay-a-fee upgrades available.

I’ll store my free DMG installation file, but I think I’ll remove it from my list of “to have” apps… The lack of the link is intentional :-(
