Why are there always a ton of applications out there that aren't released for Mac until months, or sometimes years, after the Windows version comes out? Skype announced the release of Skype 3.0 Windows Beta
at the beginning of November, and Skype 2.5 for Mac wasn't even out yet. Fear not, Om Malik
reports that Skype just dropped the bomb that Skype 2.5 beta for Mac
is out. Mr. GigaOM says that the new Mac version features outbound SMS text messages and 10-way conference calling. A great new feature of this version is the display of cash left in your SkypeIn or SkypeOut account. Don't forget the added bonus of being able to leave messages for your friends when they are offline or on the move. So when do you think the 3.0 version for the Mac will be released?
