Skype slashes battery use for Windows 8 system launch

Skype has been redesigned to work with Windows 8’s touch interface. Skype’s video chat software has been re-engineered to radically cut its energy use on the upcoming Windows 8 operating systems. The application is designed to stop using the computer’s central processing unit (CPU) when it is left to run in the background. It means users can receive calls or instant messages without the risk of exhausting their laptop battery. The move may help Skype compete against Oovoo, Google Talk and other rivals.
