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

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...

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. ]]

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?
