I logged into my Gmail account today and it axed me if I want to make a free phone call and I'm like "yea right, get lost", but they would not give up and serveth me with pop-up ads such as this: so I'm like, "fine, whatever" I don't have ship to do so I'll try it just to get you to shut up. I click on the Try it now button expecting them to ask for my CC info, but lone and behold, a keypad comes out and I dial my girlfriend's number (It's true, I'm not a homo!) Anyway, she ansers and iut goes down like this: gf: Hello? me: Hello? gf: Hello? me: Hello? gf: Hello? me: Hello, can you hear me? gf: Who is this? me: This is Steve! gf: oh god, what do you want? me: I can't believe this! I'm talking from my computer! gf: That's nice. me: No, you've got to believe me! The Google... I, I, I opened the Gmail and and and... gf: Are you high again? me: What number came up on your phone?? gf: 760-705-8888. I have to go. Stop calling me. Your "girlfriend" ended the voice chat at 3:55 PM. OK, I seriously missed the boat on this one: Why is this free? What is stopping people from abusing it? (prank phone calls, etc...) Can Google hear me? What does this mean for the future of telephone companies?
