Since it launched, MagicJack has claimed to be magical by eliminating monthly bills on phone calls. The jack does it all, but with one serious limitation for most users - the need for the PC to be on in order to make and receive the free calls. Lately, MagicTalk came out, with some 'magic' on which only GMail has preceded it - you could use the software to make free calls without the jack. So far, the PC is still on, and annoyingly so, some would say.
MagicJack announced (as reported on NYT) it will soon launch something that will break free from the PC. It will be called MagicJackPlus and will cost $50. With it, you can make VoIP calls by simply plugging an RJ-45 Ethernet jack to it and your regular phone. The Ethernet jack will also disappear, with the coming of Wi-Fi and 4G modules. We'll have to wait some months before seeing that, though.
