Google, Mozilla Team Up for Skype-Killing Video Call Demo

What's interesting about this post is not "Skype-killing video calls" but rather the technology behind it (which I might add could just as easily be used by Skype as anyone). "WebRTC is a proposed standard — currently being refined by the W3C — with the goal of providing a web-based set of tools that any device can use to share audio, video and data in real time." I'm not so sure the powers that be will want to allow people to have such technology in their hands - imagine having an application that allows you to share a perfect copy of a video or movie just as easily as making a Skype or Hangout call today. But I'm sure looking forward to it.
