Skype Journal confirmed that Skype users in the United Arab Emirates are blocked from the Skype.com web site. This prevents users of the Skype internet telephone system from buying minutes to call at highly discounted rates, of special importance to the many expatriates who work in Dubai.

asterisk & skype?
for some time i have been thinking about how nice it would be to have the ability to add a skype channel to asterisk. apparently some people have been thinking the same thing. there's even a bounty for it (currently $1050).i'm no fan of skype, but the ability to interconnect with other protocols is the power of asterisk and somehow it seems stupid to try and ignore the 35 million registered users they currently have, not to mention their low pstn interconnect fees.another thing, they have announced the 100 millionth skype download, but they only have 35 million users. that means roughly 2 out of 3 people that downloaded skype actually dumped it.
