Skype for Mac with VC out now


Great news this morning via TechCrunch – Skype has released a new version for Mac. Video support is finally available, though it???s a separate download. in beta form at the moment.

Drag and drop contact adding and file transfer are smooth. You can even drag and drop someone from your contact list into a group chat.

The note on the skype website says that the Video Preview of Skype for Mac is only recommended for experienced users and should not be used on a production system that you depend on. I think I’ll be trying it out on a separate system before commiting to using it on my laptop!

  1. Looks great, doesnt it. It would good if they included a feature that allowed you to record sound/video though. Gizmo has this feature and recording skype conversations seems to me to be reasonably essential functionality.

  2. I just finished formatting a hard drive and reinstalling win98 on an older pc along with a few ed applications. allinall it took the better part of 4 hours. i luv technology but i can do and do not have to ask someone else to get my computers ready for me. i am still convinced that schools need full time tech-heads who want to assist teachers develop their potential rather than protect them from themselves. Where are the resources electronic or otherwise? Libraries need to develop electronic resources to assist classroom teachers. many issues need to develop in parallel with teacher development. teacher development is only one aspect. computers need to function/libraries need electronic resources/teachers need to learn to teach themselves. now that is one of the best common sense idead i have ever had. if a teacher can teach others surely they could teach themselves. similar to heal thyself sort of idea for the medical profession i guess. anyway i like your site and will be back often.
