Skype Video do we really care about Video calls?

Posted by geeknews at 10:53 AM on December 1, 2005

While I really love Skype and use it daily, I am not so sure I am that big of a fan of video calls. Do we really need to see the person on the other end. Most of the people that we would use the Skype video feature with live in a part of the US that has no broadband. I am not so sure it is that big of a deal. One thing I will be watching out for is how much of a performance hog it becomes. [Skype]

    I know there can be a use for it… like Adam Curry uses it so he can have “face-to-face” contact with his employees at Podshow. I am not sure it is used as much as they would leave you to believe.
