    Video conferencing and even personal video calling has been around for quite some time. And although Apple may have put popularized it in mobile, it hardly invented the first video calling mobile app. In fact, there were a bevy of video calling applications available long before FaceTime came to be. Alas, Apple managed to create a proprietary video calling platform that's only available to its own customers. And if you're using something other than an iPad, iPhone, iPod or Mac, no matter how many times your mother asks you to FaceTime her, it's not going to happen. You simply cannot ...

    Talk about corporate evil. We're all unhappy with the fact that AT&T plans to charge you a couple of extra bucks for FaceTime over 3G once iOS 6 becomes a reality, so we've all ranted our lungs and keyboards off in contempt. You'd expect that if AT&T would ever issue a statement regarding this, they'd do so to make their customers and tech media happy, but nope, that's not the case. AT&T has been clear about the fact that if you do want FaceTime, you'll have to use their new, and should I add, more expensive Mobile Share Plans. They also just sent everybody a lengthy response ...
