The article focuses on the efforts of Clique Communications to offer a software-driven product to cable operators and telephone companies in the U.S. which can turn a home computer into a videophone. The voice-over-Internet Protocol-based Clique Video Phone uses Webcams and a client-software download to turn a computer screen into a video phone. Clique's plan is to sell its video telephony application to cable and telecommunication operators as an extension of their broadband Internet services.
