Skype has done a lot to revolutionize the way we communicate; there's hardly any arguing that. But largely the service has remained the same for years now. It's a VoIP system, and while it has arrived on new devices (like the iPhone), not much has changed in terms of functionality. Until this week. From CES in Las Vegas, Skype has announced...
