    Their main competitor in this business will be Skype, naturally. Would be
    interesting to see how they fight the prices down to zero trying to gain
    market share.

    I wonder if Yahoo's offering will be sip based or some home-grown
    protocol like Skype.

    This may be either a big hint or a bit of misdirection. There are
    enough sip servers listed to make things interesting. Looks like they
    are expecting a large crowd or want us to think they are expecting a
    very crowd.

    $ dig sip.yahoo.com
