IT WOULD BE a major event if I wired my 80-year-old mom to the internet because she is proud to avoid computers. The computer technology in her car, oven, and television don't count because there is no keyboard for those things. She finally accepts the fact that she calls me over the internet when she dials my SkypeIn number on her cell phone. She has a mobile phone plan that makes it free to call nearby area codes so that means she reaches me in Cashel (Ireland) for free when dialing my Philadelphia number from her cell phone in the States. She credits the internet for the savings. So count mom as one of those non-geeks who use Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) without even turning on the computer.
