And now you can make Skype calls on your flat screen 50 inch

Ever wanted to make Skype video phone calls in HD?

Panasonic and Skype have activated something called SkypeTM on certain 2010 Panasonic-brand flat screens (VIERA CAST enabled models). Customers need a $170 special camera to allow video conferencing. The camera has four built-in unidirectional microphones, so you don't need to hold anything in your hand during conversation. Just get within viewing range of your TV and talk

The new setup will allow consumers to make free Skype-to-Skype voice and video calls directly from the boob tube. You can also make calls to landline or mobile phones for a fee. You get voicemail and the ability to conference with 24 other people.

Shouldn't the headline read "...50 inch flat screen"?
