Sometimes Voice Is All You Need

While I am an avid user and proponent of video conferencing (to me this means all forms of visual communications), I don't believe it is going to replace voice calling - at least not all voice calls. As with other communications technologies, it will replace only part of the other means of communications. You see - sometimes video is just not what we are looking for.
