FaceTime Coming to Mac & PC
Feel like you've been missing out on FaceTime because you don't have a new iPhone 4 or iPod Touch 4G? Well fear not, as word is coming down the pipleline that Apple plans on bringing FaceTime to both the Mac and Windows operating systems.
rumors that Apple’s FaceTime video calling will be headed to Mac OS X in the form of an iChat update, but interestingly enough, it will also be coming to Windows. While it is unsure what form FaceTime will take in Windows, it is understood that FaceTime is built on open standards and has been released as an open standard, which means we could see it completely integrated into existing services like Skype, Windows Live Messenger, or even built right inside of iTunes.
This would be a very smart move on Apple's part, thus making FaceTime a more universal concept that we could see spread like a virus. Doing this makes everyone connected with Apple's technology, iDevice or no iDevice. Back in 2009, Mac4Ever predicted well in advance, Apple's October 2009 iMac refresh, including the addition of an SD card slot and quad-core processor, however even through all of this, we will have to wait for official news from Apple.
What are your thoughts on this rumor? I personally would love to see an iChat for Windows get released.
