Hands-On with Apple's new FaceTime for Mac (Screenshots)
Use "Facebook Telephone" to call FB friends - or anyone else!

Using Apple FaceTime to connect from a Mac to a... TRAIN?

Received a FaceTime call on my Mac from a +44 number (U.K.) and the first time it didn't connect... but a little bit later the call came through... and it turned out to be James Body on a train somewhere in the UK!


Apparently James had a 3G MIFI near the window and had his iPhone connected to that via WiFi. James' audio came across quite well and the video was clear... if choppy from time to time. James said he was experiencing latency around 5 seconds or so.

Still, it was rather cool that it worked as well as it did!

Fun times...
