6.3. Computer-Centric Phone Features

Computer-centric phones have relatively few features compared to the phone-centric providers in the previous chapter. Why? Because phone features are primarily applied to the receiving party, and computer-centric phones still have trouble receiving calls in many cases.

Honestly, the feature list does lag behind even traditional phones.

Caller ID? Skype shows user profiles.
