Microsoft with VZ launched an "advanced" VoIP offering this week to counter Skype. AOL rolls out AIM Phoneline next week. Yahoo has new search technology. Microsoft and Google are fighting about IE's MS search preference. Win Live Mess 8 launched with hardware vendors. Yep. It's getting bloody. But did you notice it is all about VoIP??? With that much noise, telcos stand to lose even more lines, which makes Valor and Embarq vulnerable.
