    1. yes.

      and if i were apple, i’d not allow this.
      why use facetime if you can use the “FaceTime camera” with skype, yahoo messenger, and any other competitor now.

    2. So, you have not heard yet. Microsoft owns Skype now so what ever they were able to do will become almost unusable now. Sorry, it is one of those monkey boy kind of things.

      It is like the Midas Touch just backwards!

    1. No. He already knows some idiot will pay $8.5 billion. So, Steve Ballmer will start at twice that. Say, $19 billion and refuse to pay more than $20 billion. If they will take the balance of the embarrassing Zune mp3 players off Microsoft’s hands, he will pay $40 billion! (He can’t hide that inventory forever.)

  1. Wow Tony, going from assistant manager at a flagship location on May 17th (according to one of your other forum posts) to a senior Apple employee on May 19th is amazing. Congrats on the promotion and we look forward to your announcement that you are replacing Steve Jobs next week. Please continue posting from the unemployment line. We can hardly wait for the next tidbit of info.

  2. You seem to be a “senior Apple employee” in the same fashion that John Oliver is a “Senior Washington Analyst” for the Daily Show. Or perhaps I misread it, and ‘senior’ applies to your birthdate. 😆
