MagicJack (repost?) So you don't have to follow a link I'll past the info here. College kids that are on a budget and only have their cell as a phone line can now have a home phone for 40$ A YEAR. You can take the hardware with you ANYWHERE and plug it into ANY COMPUTER (that has an internet connection) and it installs the software automatically and your phone line is right there with you. That, my friends, is pretty bad ass.
