Skype Ver for Mac

Hello World! I remember programming that line in my very first C++ class 10+ years ago. I wonder if they still do that? Anyway, I’m back! It’s been quite some time since I have posted to my blog and I apologize to all those who care. So you are asking yourself what epic application or event has happened to wake Scottie from his deep sleep? Skype Ver for Mac which was released October 23rd. One word UnFuckenReal! I have been playing with the beta version of Skype with video for Mac since it was released. I loved it and it brings me great joy that Skype has released it’s first none beta version of Skype with video for Mac. So how is the video in this version? One word, UnFuckenBelieveable! I’ve been a big fan of iChat for many years and Apple is the pioneer for video chatting through an IM client. Skype just happened to do it better. The biggest gripe I have with iChat is it always seems like there’s something wrong with the firewall or settings somewhere that prevents the video from coming through. I have NEVER had a problem connecting with Skype video. And how is the audio you ask? One word, you guessed it, so I’m not going to say it again. I’ve also tested the quality of the audio and video between a Mac and a PC. There is no difference. The audio and video are great.

Bottom line people if you’ve ever wanted to get into the video chatting arena now is the time. I’ve tested all the other services such as AOL, Windows Live and Yahoo and they all are TERRIBLE. They don’t even come close to the ease of use and quality that skype has. Head over to www.skype.com and get yourself a copy. Thanks Tim Eian for skyping with me this evening and sparking me to write this post.
