My Father's First Internet Video Chat Experience
I got a call from my mother, who lives three thousand miles from me, telling me that my father wasn't doing well after a bout with pneumonia and she needed a little help. I would do anything for my mother and father so I got the house in order and left my husband and son with a refrigerator full of frozen dinners for my parent's house. It isn't really any big deal because we're only five hours apart by air so off I went to help with my father.

Dad Stays In Touch With Family While On Business
I travel quite a lot for my company. My business takes me to several cities all over the US and having a cell phone is great but being able to see my 5 year old son and wife while we talk is great. I read an article on the internet about connectfriend and thought I would give it a try. Connectfriend has turned out to be a really convenient service for me and my family because I can post messages for my wife to pick up at her convenience. I carry a laptop with a headset and a laptop Logitech webcamera with built in wireless nic card. At home we have a wireless router, a desktop PC and a laptop set up the same as my company laptop. My wife usually uses the built in microphone and speakers on the laptop so that both my son and she can hear me while carrying the laptop around the house and out to the patio with them. Its kind of like a speaker phone with live video. I was really surprised at how well the connectfriend video messenger works even on wireless connections. I can hear and see my family in almost real time video.
