    "Another hand in your pocket?"

    April 24, 2012  |   By michaelvm

    Pros

    The software works ok, although it is crippleware. Being limited to one small video window doesn't provide an open window to the true capabilities of the software. What happened to an unencumbered trial period, guys?

    Cons

    True to the common new business model, you have to rent the full capability that the program has. Big brother isn't a cam ridden society, It's a society where you have to buy software then let a business put it's hand in your pocket perpetually. I'd rather buy software that I only have to pay for once.

    Summary

    If not for that subscription required for full capability, I'd give it an a+. Anything that takes us from chat to nearly face to face communication is a step forward. I for one will continue to resist the trend towards allowing every company I deal with putting their hand in my pocket and giving them the keys to my bank account.
