    I see the new iPod Touch even has this functionality!! I take it it doesn't count as a phone call then it is simply a wifi connection jobby

    Is it as good as the ads make it out

    Thomas is putting an iPod Touch on his xmas list - can't believe it has this on it :thud: I feel very old when I start getting excited about things like this

    So I take it there is no charge for it as it is a wifi thing?

    On 'an idiot abroad' when he was in Cairo there was a KFC that only employed deaf people and the manager was on the phone to someone signing using webcam technology ,absolutely brilliant application of technology
