Google lets you make free phone calls anywhere in the US or Canada for the rest of 2011. Works great!  All you need is a free Gmail account.

From Your Computer
Browse to Gmail and click, Call a Phone on the left side.  Obviously you need a mic and speakers but most laptops in the last few years have these built right in.


From Your iPod/iPhone
Of course you need an Internet connection and a compatible headset.  Then download free app Talkatone and signin to your Gmail account.
