The guy who gave you free email is now planning to give you free teleconference facility. Sabeer Bhatia, the brain behind Hotmail, has a new offering called Sabse Bolo (Hindi for Talk to Everyone), which gives you a free teleconference bridge.
You register and get a Conf id and Pin similar to what any of the commercial teleconference providers will give you. The free service allows you to conference with up to 10 people (from what I can gather). How will this help you?? Well think about a conf with multiple friends or family members. This is as yet a untouched area as far as India is concerned. I know of quite a few friends who use services like Skype to do this, but then this can be a good alternative for getting people who do not have a computer/internet or who do not know how to use one.
