Those who use it swear by it. Now available in Canada, magicJack (magickjack.ca) is a pocket-sized product that turns your computer into an inexpensive landline alternative. By inserting YMax Corp.'s $40 device — promoted on one of those "As Seen on TV" infomercials — into an available USB port on your PC, and then plugging a regular telephone jack into the other end, you can talk via VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) technology. For $20/year you'll be able to make unlimited calls to Canada and the U.S. Click here for more on the magicJack.
