    Why is video calling so hyped? Could do it on my Vario-II years ago on 3G, novelty wore of quick though.

    Nice that Android is getting this, not just to annoy apple either. Google video chat here we come....

    I think Flashtime might not be the best name for a video calling application.

    Because the mighty US of A is actually behind in this aspect. This is the first most americans have heard of Video Calling. We grew out of this fad years ago.

    Am I the only one worried that Adobe (a company known for their security expertise) will now have applications that access peoples' phone cameras and microphones?

    I'm thoroughly enjoying seeing Adobe and Apple try to sh*t on each other constantly, it's so entertaining.

    They already have applications that can access your computer's cameras and microphones (ie normal flash).

    You expressly have to provide permission for access, there have NEVER been any security problems in relation to this issue... (that's the advantage of the 'closed' (free) player using an open platform)....

    Great news for Adobe, I believe they are releasing a compiler for Android apps too soon, so Apple will soon see what they have missed out on (some more)....

    When will people realise that it is not good (i.e. terrible) for technology or consumers to buy Apple products. They completely lock down your device and then proceed to leech money of every piece of software sold for it, most music sales, book purchases, television shows and films. Would you buy a television from Sony if you could only watch what they allowed AND you had to pay them for the privilege? Would you buy a Windows PC if you could only buy through Microsoft?
