    My girlfriend and I are trying to get our webcams to work through AIM and iChat, but it never connects right.... I can see a picture of me where I would normally see the picture of someone else. Any ideas?

    I'll give that a shot... I know you can use Skype, but I haven't tried it yet.

    if the "leaked iPhone 2 promo photos" are to be believed, we may see iChat for Windows next week at WWDC.

    Yeah, it seems as though there is a problem with AIM and logitech web cams... Not sure why, but there are posts all over their website about it.

    Just started using it, and it really is incredibly simple to use. Downloaded it and was on in < 5 min! :)
