When I was at school we were always told that in the future there would be video phones and cars would fly. Well, I've not been in a flying car yet, but a couple of days ago I made my first video phone call. I've actually had a 3G phone for about six months, but I've never had any need or desire to make a video call. A few days ago I still had no need to make a video call, but I found another person with a video capable phone and thought I'd try it out. The 3G signal was rather weak in the house I was in, so we both had to go into the corner of a room upstairs in order for it to work. But it did, and I made my first video call. The future is here! I can't see myself ever wanting to use a video call other than as proof of concept though.
