Skype + Caller ID + USA
If you use Skype and pay for "Skype-out" service that allows you to connect with non-Skype telephone numbers and you are tired of having your Skype calls show up on the phones of those you call with a weird looking number . . . and you live in the UK, Sweden, Denmark, Japan, Hong Kong, Estonia or Poland . . . you're in luck! Otherwise, probably not and definitely not in the USA. The Skype help FAQ info on this is totally useless and completely confusing. See the Skype blog here: LINK. You can parse all this information from the blog entry and the comments but Skype doesn't make it easy to make sense of it all.
