It’s one of those mornings where I’ve been up since 4 — so I decided to just bite the bullet and get out of bed. A pretty revolutionary service awaited me on Techmeme. Maybe NOW, Comcast will get the memo that their revenues from selling home phones are toast.

Why? Ooma, which launched a free consumer phone service this morning. With free phone service (all you need is the hardware & a broadband connection), there is absolutely zero need to pay for a traditional home phone line. Walt Mossberg mentions that the hardware will go on sale in September.
