Fring Says Skype are Cowards - Who is Right 6 Years ago
This bit of dispute becomes relevant to the CIOZone.com audience as many Senior IT folks use Skype daily to communicate.
Skype and Fring are squabbling. Fring first made a claim that Skype was blocking Fring. Then in one of their corporate blog posts they call Skype "Cowards".
"Now that Fring expanded capacity to support the huge demand for video calling for all users, Skype has blocked us from doing so". They are afraid of open mobile communication. Cowards".
Skype has responded - stating that Fring's misuse of Skype software was "damaging their brand and reputation: There is no truth to Fring's claims that Skype has blocked it. Fring made the decision to remove Skype functionality on its own".
Who is correct here - does it matter? or is all that matters is recognizing this important trend in personal communications is growing and evolving.. Are we soon to be living in the "Jetsons" culture? Robots, etc. all we are missing are the personal flying disks..
