Skype Ajaxian technique to pick phone numbers

Category: Showcase

I happened upon a nice use of Ajax when looking for a SkypeIn number.

As the user, I could change the area code, and an ajaxian request would go out for samples of that number.

Then, I could even narrow it down by putting in a full, or partial number, and skype would tell me what matches (if any).

To let the user know what was happening, they change the image next to the element of choice to show server side access when it is happening.

Nice and clean.
