RQOTD - Wednesday

Do you use Skype? How often? Who do you talk to?

I've never used it. I would like to as I have family in the midwest and I think it would be fun for them to interact with my boys.

Never. Well, we've done it once with DH. But that was it.

Never anymore. Kim and Mel and I use to use it a lot...we even used Oovoo which is like Skype but you can do a three way video chat. But both programs got frustrating with dropped calls or locking up mid convo so we eventually just stopped. it was fun though to see the kids interact and to see in each others houses. Mel and I would set it up in the kitchen while we cooked dinner and talk for hours while we ate and just did our evening routine.

My niece always wants me to get on it so she can see Deacon but he is only interested for a second and then I am the one stuck in front of the computer talking. I hate talking on the phone and I feel like skype is even harder because its not like you can walk around and do stuff at the same time.

Oh yeah, I've also talked to Amy and Bethany on it too.

We don't have it at our house, but used it this morning for a bit. We talked to my SIL who is in Norway now (going to grad school). It was kind of fun, she was able to "meet" Vivi.

Never used it. I do use FaceTime and iChat video chat a lot though with friends and family. Most of us are Apple fanboys and it works seamlessly.

Agreed! iChat work so much better. However, only me and my coworkers have it.
