Take on the new iPhone’s FaceTime

Posted: June 8th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Random thoughts | Tags: , , | 4 Comments »

News Flash, europeans have front faced cameras on their phones and videocalls (everywhere there is 3G) for years now. And no, they are not using those.

I tested vedeocalls twice when they first appeared a few years ago and that was it, never again. It’s simply useless.

    I agree this is useless when you want to give a call. But in a selected number of cases it might be very appreciated family on different continents, babies, sharing something going on right now…

    Also the simplicity is key: no account to create, no need to log in anywhere. You give a phone call and if the person also have the necessary phone, you get this button to show up. It might just work.

    it’s exactly what commercials said when the service launched. People don’t use it.

    Tablet computers have exited for a long time, yet nobody used them. The iPad comes out and is an overnight success. Prior existence and failure of a technology doesn’t necessarily mean it is doomed to fail–it could well be that the implementation or the time for it was wrong.

    i don’t see how this feature is implemented different on the iphone than the rest of the phones.
