I mean, how cool is that?

I am talking with Nikolas over VoIP skype right now... That's not new... The new thing is that he is as we speak flying at 60,000 feet over the atlantic!

I had heard of people that make use of Lufthansa's onboard wireless internet feature, and also that they use Skype to call people cheap while on flight. However, I had never tried it out myself. Nikolas says it's $30 flat fee for the whole flight, he got conencted and we started chatting which worked flawlessly. Then we decided to add voice, and low and behold, I heard his voice on the other side of the line. When I replied back, he confirmed that he heard my voice too, hence establishing a full duplex connection. wow...
