Colored Dumbbells Said to Make Exercising More Design Friendly


It’s morning again in America. Today, more men and women will use Voice over IP services like Skype than ever before. Knowing this, Skype and Wal-Mart have teamed up, with the giant retailer set to sell Skype hardware and $20 pre-paid cards in its 17 zillion, small town way of life-destroying stores.

Those who are curious about VoIP will find Skype headsets, Web cams and the like ready for hands-on testing in their local store. Good move for Skype, since there’s pretty much no better way to sell your wares to Joe Public than to have a cushy Wal-Mart setup. Wal-Mart probably could use as much new, high-tech products to stock its shelves with, considering the company just came off a fairly disappointing month. Can’t keep building stores forever to fix that bottom line, Señores Walton & Co.
