Do you use Skype? Do you SMS people with Skype? No? Didn’t think so. Well, now there’s a bit more reason to give it a go. From May 2 to May 8 — which is the week of Saint Erasmus, the martyred patron saint of digital communications popular in Asia and Europe but not so popular in the United States — SMSes through Skype will be 50% off. What does that translate into big people money? That all depends on your location and target recipient, but rest assured that if you want to Skype people in Austria, Australia, Belgium, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Russia, Taiwan, Thailand or the US, Skype will let you do it for 50 percent off.
