Now This Is Magic (Jack that is)

A teenage dream comes true. For all of you who are the caregivers to teenagers, I'm sure you received a bill or two over (or should I say WAY OVER) the minutes allotted to you by your Cell Phone Carrier. It happened in our family and to avoid a mountain of stress old grandma and grandpop paid the bill. If only MagicJack would have brought this little dandy of an item to us (the consumers) we would have still had $300 in our bank account. But don't get your hopes up; I'm sure it will be short lived. ( quicker than a roach can run across a kitchen floor once the lights are turned on.)

MagicJack's next act: disappearing cell phone fees
The company behind the magicJack, the cheap Internet phone gadget that's been heavily promoted on TV, has made a new version of the device that allows free calls from cell phones in the home, in a fashion that's sure to draw protest from cellular carriers.
YMax Corp., which is based in Palm Beach, Fla., said this week at the International Consumers Electronics Show that it plans to start selling the device in about four months for $40, the same price as the original magicJack. As before, it will provide free calls to the U.S. and Canada for one year.
The device is, in essence, a very small cellular tower for the home.
The size
deck of cards, it plugs into a PC, which needs a broadband Internet connection
The device then detects when a compatible cell phone comes within 8 feet
places a call to it.
The user enters a short code on the phone
The phone is then linked to the magicJack,
as long as it's within range
magicJack routes the call
No minutes
