FaceTime, All The Time

We admit it - we're not totally sure we see the point of Apple's Facetime video-calling format. Why not just use Skype? But Apple are pushing it pretty hard and now, the inevitable has happened - it's come to Macs.

Released today as a beta, it's apparently not as slick as on the iPhone - but then, it's not finished yet.

Of course, on the iPhone, it's wi-fi only. On a MacBook, can you plug in a 3G dongle and get Facetime on the move? We don't know, but it's probably a matter of mere hours before someone checks.
