I'm updating the phone and video conferencing section of my paper on law office management and wanted to see how people are using online services such as Skype, or Logitech's Vid for calls and video calls. I have both now (just added Skype) but am curious whether there's an emerging favorite in the legal world. At present the one I actually use the most is Apple's FaceTime so I can have video calls with an attorney in our firm's Plano office, but I would really rather use something that actually uses the webcams on our computers. (That's not a comment on whether she gets too much makeup on her iPhone. Oh, wait, maybe it is).
As I said, I just added Skype (name is michael.smith8639) but as I have no one I know on the service it's a little difficult to call people to hear/see how it works. I'm just curious whether people who probably already have cell phones, wireless headsets, and calling plans are using services such as these to video conference from their desks. And if they do have it, do you actually use it, or do you prefer audio-only calls.
