My husband and I were watching a while back an episode of Girls on HBO in which Lena Dunham's boyfriend is running down the sidewalk while simultaneously talking to her via real-time video on his cellphone. She can see him and he can see her.
If I had any kids, I would already know this stuff, but I do not, so I have to pick up new social stuff through other media. Not only do I want to be able to do that on my cellphone, I apparently already have the ability to do it on my computer, not to mention, via my brand new iPad. So, as a Sacramento real estate agent, it's time to get with the times and use FaceTime. I hate to be left in the dust.
The main problem is where to look when you're talking. I tried to look at the camera lens and then back at my iPad to see if I'm looking directly at the caller, and you know what? It's impossible. My eyes will NOT look in two different directions. What a bummer.
