Skype Stomps on Fring’s Ambitions

Fring’s recent update to their app allowed iPhone to computer calls through Skype. However, Skype has put a stop to that. Though the service worked great, Skype wants to claim that market for themselves. So, Skype has threatened Fring with a lawsuit, saying they had to remove support for their service. Fring has complied, rather than fight it in court.
Skype better get that feature out quickly, because Fring beat them to it, using their own platform. That’s just sad, Skype. Although, it seems to be following the direction business is taking. If you can’t beat ’em, sue ’em.
