Thanks to the peer-to-peer Internet telephony network Skype, you can now surprise your mom this Mother's Day with a phone call.
Skype will be offering free global calls from May 13th from 5am (EST) to May 14th at 5am (EST) for calls placed from the US and Canada. Before you get all excited and call your friends in Australia and Hong Kong, make sure that first call goes to your mom, as calls are limited to 200 minutes during the offer period.. And if you have a ma like me, you can never guesstimate how long she wants to chit-chat for.
