Sex chat through skype
Before we jump on that statement as a confirmation, remember Microsoft does not necessarily want to advertise the fact that they track you either as that’s tantamount to inviting potential criminal activity to their network.So when you combine the re-working of the Skype network, Microsoft’s patent, changes to CALEA along with Microsoft’s “cooperation” with LEA and we can see how “Skype is no longer safe for secure calls” can be interpreted. Bottom line, which you already knew is don’t use Skype if you’re a political dissident or concerned about privacy.What is interesting to note is the point Skype makes that this is a service, whereas traditional pay-per-call services are limited to the local nation in which you live. think the regulators in various countries might not be entirely thrilled about this?(Since they're conceivably losing tax revenue to Skype?Our feeling on the matter was this move to re-organize Microsoft’s Skype was being done for strategic purposes anyway but the government’s request and Redmond’s patent probably was a convenient option to exercise as well. News out of Skype today is that a new 3.1 beta includes a new service called Skype Prime, where you can charge someone to call you for either a one-time fee or a per-minute fee.If someone calls you up asking you questions about some topic, you could say "I'd be glad to help you, but to do so I need to charge you for the time." You click a button or two and, ta da, you're doing small micro-payments deducted directly from your Skype Credit account.The Skype/Pay Pal integration facilitates it all and makes it easy.
One thing that's missing, curiously, is any kind of mention of a directory. In the meantime, if you have questions about something like, oh, podcast production, for a mere /minute, I'll gladly talk to you...Presumably off-loading some of the server-work from peers to super-nodes will take the processing power off of the end-user and will allow Microsoft to tailor services. The more malevolent and somewhat conspiratorial reason is Microsoft is doing this just to appease LEA so that Skype is now vulnerable to eavesdropping—or rather to make it easier for them to do so. For instance, right after Microsoft bought Skype it won a controversial patent for “legal intercept” technology designed to be used with VOIP services like Skype to “silently copy communication transmitted via the communication session.” Okay, even we’ll admit that is highly coincidental and is curious.What’s more, the US Government is asking internet companies for a “back door” to their software for LEA purposes by amending the Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act, or CALEA (1994), in essence making software “wire-tap friendly”. Microsoft and Skype are not confirming nor denying it either telling e already know they store chat logs for instant messages up to 30 days).The call then proceeds as a paid Skype Prime call and your Skype Credit is deducted by the appropriate amount that then goes to the receiver’s account.The provider does not get the call fees directly as Skype Credit — rather, they go into a special holding “box”.
