Video chat was once the future. In 2001: A Space Odyssey, the video phone was supposed to be an awe-inspiring example of future technology. Well, that future is here — video chat’s been with us for many years.
I really dislike Skype. It has been foisted upon us because Microsoft wanted us to use Skype. MSN had become perfect, finally. MSN did vid calls and was perfectly capable of keeping us all chatting with no problem,. The only reason we had to give up msn was because M/s would not allow us to use the thing, forcing us to the Skype download page. As usual the heavy handed corporation dictates what we can and cannot do.
Well, that didn't really work. Many of us are now using Trillian which incorporates Skype, MSN, Google hangouts, Gmail, yahoo, ICQ, you name it. And all in one lovely package too. Many others are using aMSN. Perhaps if we had been treated rather better and if Ms stopped acting as tho they know what is best for us, we may have given the thing a go, but forcing us to use something just because "we said so" aint going to work.
