New species discovered in VoIP genus: Gizmo Project

Some real sound assurance, via Dr Faustus, that Skype will never be able to change their business model and start charging for VoIP calls. Gizmo Project (which I didn't test yet) offers comparable VoIP-out call rates and a special sweetener, announced yesterday, to try and lure us away from Skype.
The new program gives active Gizmo Project users unlimited free calling to landlines and mobile phones in 60 countries around the world. People who wish to participate simply download Gizmo Project, sign up for a free account and add their friends, family and business contacts to their Gizmo Project Contact list. Callers can then call their Contacts on their mobile phones, landlines or Gizmo Project for free.
Yes, Australia is one of those countries. The capitalist inside me is heartened to see such competition pop out of nowhere.

The promised update has gone into a new post here.

I feel completely ignorant. What is VolP? And is Skype the mechanism worn on one's head through which one can talk to others through the computer/internet? Sorry, I'm really not up with all this.
