Today my husband called me from his office (20 feet away from mine!) “Answer your phone! ” Well, maybe I am going to be scorched by microwaves, but every phone I owned was inches from my fingertips. “What do you mean?” I yelled back. “Oh. Mac just came out with Facetime for the computer and I thought I was dialing you.!” Well the trick is I have to go to the Mac App store and download it, which I did and there we were, 20 feet away, talking to each other through Facetime. (The picture I uploaded should have his pic in there because you can see both parties, but I already knew he would not agree to be in this pic–Heck, I shouldn’t have agreed to be in it, but having no models around, oh well.) The computer version of Facetime connects through your email address. You must sign up once you download the $.99 app. It was OK, but I am a Skype girl, where you can video conference 9 people.
Another great app for my iPhone Will vlogged about was Toon Camera, where you video tape and see yourself in cartoon mode. Here is is one made by Will:
My new friend Will always has some great suggestions for tech toys. He uses this thing called the Xshot, so you can record a vlog and actually be in the picture! Browse through his video vlogs. He’ll show you the unit! Please visit Will at Creative Soul TV at: http://www.youtube.com/user/TheCreativeJournal. Friend him!
That’s all I have for now!
