Skype and Crossloop

Recently me and a friend of mine have been using the Skype service(VOIP) and testing to see what our capabilities were. We finally tried Crossloop(Remote access) with Skype. They both passed our initial test. Skype didn't seem to skip a beat or drop any calls. Crossloop worked well though my friend did notice some lag when I was opening some applications but wasn't a major deal. When we switched access I didn't notice any lag on my end. I thought this would be a nice combination to be able to communicate with the user on the other end in addition to chat, cell or landline(remember the telephone?). Anyway I just thought I'd share the experience.

Hi there. My name is Bobby O'Neill and I'm writing to you from Glance Networks. We produce a very simple, dependable, and accessible webconferencing and remote support tool called Glance. We owe a lot of our exposure to bloggers like yourself, and so recently we decided to give back to the blogging community; if you go to www.glance.net, sign up for a free trial, and then email me at this address with your Glance username, I'll extend the trial from one week to one year, completely free.

Additionally, we're also offering bloggers an early opportunity to check out our new version of Glance at www.glance.net/beta/ . The new version, Glance 2.4, is really great; aside from a few aesthetic improvements Glance 2.4 includes a whole new way of connecting: the reverse screen-share. With Glance 2.4 you can choose to either show your screen or look at your guest's screen, all with the same easy procedure as before. Since you're interested in remote support, I figured this would be right up your alley. Definitely check it out and if you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me!
