    The other day when I was skyping with my friend I noticed something really weird.

    Whenever I use headphones, the friend that I'm skyping with can also hear what I'm hearing. It's so weird because the volume is not high at all and if I take it out of my ear I can't hear anything but my friend still can. It's like the sound is in the computer and somehow get's through to him.

    has anyone had that happening to them?

    I don't know if I was clear enough but I hope you understand.

    When you say that your friend also hears what you're hearing, do you mean that if you're playing music, your friends hears it, or do you just mean that your friend hears an echo of their own voice?

    I actually want this to be a feature (that can be enabled and disabled) cuz there are times when it would be useful.

    You chose playing a game over hanging out with your girlfriend? If she's that boring to you, you should probably get a new girlfriend.

    MBP + SKYPE = WORST THING IN THE WORLD...

    SKYPE MacOS version just terrible... no its owned by MSFT... so they may not want to work with MAc users .. I have been using Skype for more than 4 yrs.. just seeing them getting worse and worse... hope there is some other real competitors .. I HATE SKYPE now but no choice

    she's not boring or anything, but believe it or not, keeping your personal space and time is really important in relationships.

    besides, you will get lazier after 4 years.....

    I am running on medium with AA/AF off.

    What you need is Throttlestop and really good cooling XD.

    (Throttlestop gets me 50fps or so)
