Skype on the moon

Skype has made a deal with Wal-Mart, as starting to sell headsets, webcams and other stuff in more than 1,800 Wal-Mart stores.

But what would be the next big steps for Skype?
Here are some of my ideas, maybe some of them are already in use, I can`t promise that anyone hasn`t thought about these things before! But please don`t take it all too seriously..
  1. Skype on the Moon - Skype will definitely take a huge bite from the piece of space-based calls by releasing services named Space-in and Space-out.
  2. Skype in Kazakhstan - on it`s next journey, Borat would probably take Skype to his homeland.
  3. Skype to the Future - with a technology that was used in Back to the Future series, it could be possible to make a phone call to the future and vice-versa (transmission of an electronical signal through time should be theoretically simplier than transmission of an massive material object).
  4. Skype Radio - make a call to a given number and hear your favourite radio station.
  5. Skype Speech Recogniser - as millions of people are calling each other every day, then it would be a enormous source for development of speech recognisation.

It seems that Skype uses a proprietary Internet telephony (VoIP) network called the Skype protocol. The protocol has not been made publicly available by Skype and official applications using the protocol are closed-source
