MacDailyNews Take: Apple’s FaceTime is the perfect technology for just such an introduction. As Apple’s FaceTime for iOS webpages states, “Imagine your sister is away at school and can’t make it to your son’s birthday. So you’re cheering her up with a FaceTime call. As the cupcakes come out, your son’s eyes light up, and you just have to share it.
