708 is special
Dear Buzzers out loud,
I noticed that episode 708 is coming up next. This is special because if you type “708″ into a calculator and turn it upside down, it spells "BOL." You can also try typing in 710.77345

The article from Reuters said, “Internet calling company Skype said on Monday that it would offer an unlimited long-distance calling service for customers who want to reach friends and family without computers or Internet access.”
This means that the receiving party of the call need not have Internet access or a computer. The calling party must still use a computer (or Skype handset) to initiate the call.
Love the Show!
