Anyone hear of this before? http://www.magicjack.com I watched two of the videos (CBS and CNBC) and was very highly impressed by what I saw. The videos are a little older (they talk about how the jacks will be available in the future when they are actually available now) but overall did a good job of explaining how Magic Jack worked.Basically, it goes like this:1) Make sure you have high speed Internet (cable or DSL).2) Buy the Magic Jack, which is a small rectangular thingy that could fit into the palm of your hand easily. It costs $40, and that price includes free long distance and local phone coverage to anywhere in the US or Canada for one year. Every year after that, it is $20. Yes, $20 a year.3) Plug the Magic Jack into the USB port on your computer.4) Find your home phone (regular landline phone.) Plug that into the Magic Jack. About 45 seconds later, you are able and ready to make phone calls, dialing and talking on your phone as you always did.5) Enjoy the savings! :-PAccording to the people interviewed by CBS, the sound quality is crystal clear - none of the problems that people have been reporting with Skype. There is absolutely no reason to have a landline with this product - you can cancel all local and long distance, and just pay for your high speed Internet, and pay Magic Jack the $20 once a year.If this works the way it sounds like it's supposed, I think this is going to be huge. Really, really huge.Has anyone here had any experience with Magic Jack?Havs
