The article discusses latest technology gizmos. With Apple Computer Inc's iChat A/V, an ADSL connection and FireWire camera, web conferencing is no longer costly, and because file transfers are also part of the package, one can get a whole lot taken care of in short order. Now with the help of Pixion Inc's PictureTalk, even those using Windows software can join in. Though not anywhere near the cost of iChat (free being a good thing), PictureTalk brings welcome interoperability to the Web conferencing party.
