Thursday, December 08, 2005 - Yahoo Piles Into Web-Phone Field - Yahoo Piles Into Web-Phone Field: "Yahoo's addition of computer-to-phone capabilities follows a similar retooling of the rival AOL Instant Messenger service from Time Warner Inc. in October.
It also comes just as Skype is revamping its popular service with video calling, a feature that has been available through Yahoo Messenger for several years, though only for computer-to-computer calls.
In a similar vein, Sony Corp. introduced a free Internet-based phone service last month with an emphasis on visual calling that the company hopes will fuel sales of its video equipment."
