Catching up with the times: Skype and Webcams


While we were in New Jersey, my father had brought up a request wanting for video telephone capability.  I asked why and he said that since they only get to see us once a year, he wanted to see the kids’ faces more frequently so that my kids wouldn’t forget what the grandparents looked like… 

So pleasantly surprised, we had talked about Skype and its video capability for FREE!    So I have been keeping an eye out for a webcam that would meet our requirements and keep it relatively cheap.  Lo’ and behold, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that today’s Woot had Logitech QuickCam Communicate STX for $19.99!!    It sports 640×480 video capture and 1.3 MP stills!  So I quickly grabbed two and we will be giving it a go real soon!!    And by the way, this webcam supports Skype as well…  Hee…  So this one’s for you, dad!
