    Sure. Why not. I burn money just to keep warm.
    They can have my jailbreak when they pry it from my cold dead fingers.

    Maybe their server isn't up yet.
    My wife's iPhone 4 is JB running 4.1 and has My3G installed. I used FaceTime on the Mac to initiate the call to her, and it worked like a charm. We are on AT&T.

    I had no issues signing in with my Apple ID. As I said earlier, setup was basically non-existent, and it works perfect.

    Where you live, (Santa Cruz area according to your profile), you can afford it. Otherwise I was going to ask how Zimbabwe is treating you.

    Yeah, because where someone lives means they have money to spend on things they don't necessarily need. Get off it, leave the dude alone.

    Seriously, this is awesome. Wish I could test it on 3G but I don't have 3G in my area and no one that is available to talk right now. Gotta wait to see how good this is over time but for it to work flawlessly 15 seconds after it installed is awesome in it's own right.

    EDIT: What's even more awesome is that FaceTime on the Mac does not have to be open and running to receive a call. It starts when you're called, very very quickly too, and closes when you're done.

    Nice title by the way. Guess when the title doesn't contain the words 'Verizon' 'iPhone' 'confirmed' 'tomorrow' 'rumor' or anything else the essany can't skim from another site, it isn't worth making sense.

    Anyone else having issues getting it to install? It keeps telling me that there's an update required so I ran all of my updates and it still won't let me install it. It's requiring the latest security update.

    Edit: Nevermind... it requires Snow Leopard. That's my issue. Stupid, old work computer...

    Ouch. That is harsh, yet in such a funny way.

    [[Quote:
    CUPERTINO, California—October 20, 2010—Apple® today announced the public beta of FaceTime® for Mac®, an entirely new application that allows Mac users to video call iPhone® 4 and iPod touch®* users as well as other Macs. Featuring an easy to use interface, FaceTime for Mac automatically uses your Address Book contacts so there’s no need to create special buddy lists, and it works seamlessly with the built-in camera and mic on Mac notebooks, iMac® and Apple LED Cinema Displays.

    “FaceTime makes video calling to or from mobile devices easy for the first time,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “We’ve sold more than 19 million FaceTime-ready iPhone 4 and iPod touch devices in the past four months, and now those users can make FaceTime calls with tens of millions of Mac users.”

    FaceTime for Mac requires Mac OS® X Snow Leopard® and is easy to set up with an Apple ID. The public beta is available immediately as a free download at Apple - FaceTime for Mac.

    *iOS 4.1 required.

    Apple designs Macs, the best personal computers in the world, along with OS X, iLife, iWork, and professional software. Apple leads the digital music revolution with its iPods and iTunes online store. Apple is reinventing the mobile phone with its revolutionary iPhone and App Store, and has recently introduced its magical iPad which is defining the future of mobile media and computing devices. ]]

    Well, I myself am primarily a Windows user (work & home environment) being an IT Specialist. But I'm going to buy an iMac as I want to be able to harnis both Mac OSX & Windows on the same station. Therefore I opted to buy an iMac soon.

    But I believe that what you say has allot of truth to it.

    Die hard windows users will NEVER switch to a Mac. But then again I can bet money that they ALL have iPhones & iPods and most probably a iPad too
    My mgr is a diehard Windows man (practically has a tattoo). Every other conversation he starts out dissing Macs, prattling on about how great Win7 is, blahblahblah... Then he finally starts getting around to asking his Mac question about what app to use, how to do something on his MBP that he got -- 'just for testing' and he says he can't as easily do those things on Win7, etc., etc., etc.

    It's true... Once you go Mac, you never go back -- baby!

    Yes I can confirm it works on my JB'n iPhone 4 iOS 4.1 over 3G with My3G installed. First I initiated with the iMac-called phone # and it worked great, then I initiated again with the iPhone 4 through /contacts/ and it worked that way as well. I am impressed--

    Yeah, sure steve, now that you've invented video chatting on computers, I'll switch to Mac. Not working, buddy.

    Call me when someone with some goddamn sense writes a Windows version.. or better yet integrates FaceTime into Skype.
    I'll see your 'more iPhone users use Windows' comment and raise you a 'more Windows users own Android devices'.... ah Ha!
    (this didn't auto merge...hmmm)

    Skype has already said they are interested in that, BTW. Have patience young one.

    I didn't think about this while watching the keynote but doesn't Macs have iChat? Couldn't they have somehow integrated FaceTime with iChat?
