Orb gets cozy with Skype

Orb Networks, a free service that place shifts your TV, is getting jiggy with Skype. Orb users can now download and install a plug-in, which will allow Skype users to retrieve their Skype voice mails from their home computers. Orb will soon have alerts enabled so that when you get a Skype voicemail, Orb can send you an SMS. The add-on is called Orb-powered V4S. Memo to self – must get a PC to test this service out.
