Google's bought Gizmo5, a VoIP company. They've got Google Voice but no way to use it for calls to and from your computer — only redirecting calls to existing landlines and mobiles. Not anymore.
The scoop by TechCrunch suggests Gizmo5 and Google Voice could join forces to create a Skype-like service. Although they already work together well enough as separate services, we look forward to better integration. [Techcrunch via lifehacker]
