Yahoo launches cheap voice service

Yahoo is expanding its voice services, adding features that will let customers make calls to and from PCs and phones for a penny per minute.

The move puts the Web portal more directly in competition with services like Skype, which was recently bought by eBay. Several other companies, including heavyweights Microsoft and Google, offer PC-to-PC calling.

Many bloggers saw the low pricing as Yahoo’s way of playing hardball, signaling that it would make it tough for any company without deep pockets to play in this market.
