  1. I think this is a tough sell… I saw and played with the Ojo at Digital Life in the fall and while it certainly worked well, it’s pretty big for my desk and requires another one on the other end…

    With iChat or SIP video you just plug in your camera to your computer and go – from wherever to whomever.

  2. I totally agree with you, Om. I have a long distance relationship (I’m in Detroit; she’s in Toronto) and rather than run up exhorbitant cellphone bills, we’ve been using iChat’s video for free. I see no reason at all to change.

  3. I love the performance of both Packet 8 and Ojo – the video is so crisp and all. But if i gave my family a low end ibook – it is $1000 + $200 for the isight and about $15 a month for broadband, we can do the whole thing cheaper with my parents. still i guess, i am hoping that the prices and the cost of equipment is going to fall drastically.
