A number of years ago the powers that be in the UK telecoms business decided that there was no reason why another little bit of the wonderful and quirky individuality of these fair isles should be done away with, which is why our wonderful red phone boxes were uprooted and sent to the scrap heap for good. It was wonderful for theme pubs, expat millionaires or anyone else wanting to shove a little bit of England in the corner of their establishment, but for the majority we waved goodbye and that was it.
Until now. It seems that Google with be offering it’s free VOIP service from UK style phone booths across – yup, the US, in universities and airports etc etc.
Whilst we are on the note of google voice in the UK I want to ask why the service appeared on my gmail sidebar for a day, hence I paid $10 for some credit – only for it to disappear again.
