Free Softwares for July

Video calling

Logitech's Vid, very simple Internet video calling software, is for
the "non-techie", no complicated settings - much quicker to set up
than other major calling apps. With a really simple set-up and easy
to use interface Vid makes it easy using a webcam and Internet
connection. Vid is based on a person's email address, and not on an
obscure username, so no screen names and the hassles. Vid, presently,
does not connect to Skype, AIM and others. However, there's nothing
that would prevent you from using other IM and calling services in
addition to Vid on the same computer. Logitech's Vid is a
straightforward way to make video calls, just add a friend using his
or her email address, wait for your friend's acceptance of your
invitation, make a video call simply by clicking on your friend's
picture - no screen name search.

Logitech's Vid for Windows XP/Vista and Mac OS X can be
Downloaded at http://www.logitech.com/vid

A CPU that's 2.5GHz or faster is recommended for enhanced performance.
