Video calling impresses Brits, if it's Apple video calling


Works for me

I use iChat AV all the time and I just see Facetime as a more portable medium to do that. I've had countless 3G video phones over the years and made maybe 2 calls. The technology was simply too unreliable and the quality terrible. With Facetime they appear to have it right. I don't see the lack of 3G connectivity as a downside as I don't want to take a video call on the move but when I'm sitting at home or in a hotel and want to talk to my kids/wife/family etc it will work fine.

Having said that I can't see myself making many iPhone to iPhone Facetime calls because most won't have an iPhone 4s but if it is linked up to iChat or Skype then it becomes a killer app. Rather than chasing my kids round the house with my Macbook Pro trying to film them with the webcam for my sister in NZ I'll be able to do it on the iPhone. I've been waiting for this since the first iPhone came out.

Did LibCon alliance bring down O2 network?


O2 data was loopy all day yesterda

The O2 3G signal was up and down like a whores' drawers all day yesterday. I was on Edge most of the day sometimes dropping back to GPRS. The entire network also went down twice late afternoon. I can only assume it was all the media luvvies, journos and bloggers tweating and blogging on their iPhones.
