Want to send a voice message to anyone (well, anyone with an e-mail address or Skype account)? Orb Networks is now offering V4S, a tool that allows users to record voice messages from a Web browser or the Skype interface and send them to anyone. “Sometimes you just want to send someone a message in your own voice,” Orb says in its press release. Why not just call them and leave them a voice mail? The cost of a call is pretty insignificant these days, do really need a free messaging service? Heck, you can use Microsoft Sound Recorder and an e-mail client to do the same thing.
