new webcam

I spent a few minutes tonight fooling around with my new Philips webcam & headset. Now I can finally use the video feature on Skype.

I'm not impressed with the picture quality, but I'm sure a lot of the blame rests on my poor bedroom lighting. The headset is the most uncomfortable I've ever worn; I'll have to replace it soon.

I dropped my home phone line years ago, relying only on my cell for domestic calls. But I'm happy to have Skype so I can still make calls to my family overseas. And it's free! Hard to beat that kind of deal.

Do you ever Skype? Think it will totally replace home phone lines someday?


My oldest brothers turn 50 today. Happy Birthday, guys!
