I know the title sounds bad but here me out first. But let me back track a bit. For someone who works in the technology field I find myself a bit behind at times. For instance I don’t have an iPad or any other tablet/ebook reader. Would I like to have one? Yes I would. But do I have the money to just run out and get one on a whim? Nope (wouldn’t it be nice if we all could?). And until recently I’ve avoided the webcam stuff.
Now I am webcam enabled…or should I say BB is? It was lightly “suggested” by my dad, BB’s grandfather, as a way for them to see him when they can’t make it down (basically 9 months of the year). So I relented and got myself a Skype account and ordered a web cam. After a few blue screens of death (Logitech webcams and Western Digital Smartwise don’t like to play) I got it installed. And I made my first call to none other than my dad and mom…with BB in hand. I got to say…it’s awesome! Clarity is pretty good. We got an issue or two to work out with audio, but overall it works pretty good. Really good as a matter of fact. I can get 720p resolution which is just about as good as it can get without being right there.
Well BB has awoken from his slumber and needs a bit of attention!
