Do you use Skype?
Are you WEIRD enough to own MORE THAN ONE computer?
(or gullible enough to want to download the LATEST version of Skype?)
Well … f***-off! Skype is desperate to prevent you using their service.
Download … FAIL
It’s a recent development … I downloaded skype a month ago, and this crap wasn’t there back then. For the last 5 years, if you wanted to download Skype, it was a single-click from the front page. Now it’s not even *on* the front-page, and they’ve added this “don’t download” barrier.
Net effect … I’m not using Skype today. I’ve got better things to do than jump through hoops to login to a website and be spammed with advertising to use a service *I AM ALREADY PAYING FOR*.
Seems to me there’s a wave of clueless marketing people working for internet corporates these days…
