FaceTime for the Mac-(Smartphone Update #5)

Yoo Hoo!

Now there is another way to communicate with the iPhone 4 and the iPod Touch using video?


Apple has just announced FaceTime for the Mac. This means you can use your Mac (and its built-in webcam) to communicate via video with another Mac, iPhone 4 and iPod Touch (4th generation).

The video quality is so clear and astounding–you have to see it to believe it!

The Mac can either be connected via Ethernet (blue wire) or wireless–the iPhone 4 and iPod Touch can be used wirelessly (but not 3G or 4G).

This means when you are traveling and in a wifi hotspot, you can call your family and friends who have a Mac via video!

For ZVRS relay calls, you can use the Z4 downloaded to the Mac and the ZVRS app downloaded to the iPhone 4 and iPod Touch.

Every week, we are getting more communication choices.

We are getting more independent in communication.
