Chit Chat For Facebook

"Which are the best Facebook chat instant messengers? Since its launch in April 2008, Facebook Chat is rapidly gaining market share in the Instant Messaging market – most notably Windows Live Messenger and Yahoo Messenger. Indeed, back in June 2009 Facebook announced that they were sending over 1 billion instant messages a day.

Pidgin IM

"Setting the status invisible for a GTalk account has been a problem for a while now. Although there are third party plugins available, most of them do not seem to work. The basic reason of this is, although Google Talk is basically based on XMPP , it handles invisibility, away etc in a different way. And according to this ticket on the pidgin bug track, they don’t quite like it :P . After going through a bit of documentation mentioned here, I came up with the following xmpp console commands to make invisibilty work without a problem in pidgin for google talk..."

FV TouchCam N1 : First Skype-certified HD Webcam : "There are currently quite a few high-definition Webcams on the market, but what faceVsion announced at CES 2010 is something rather unique, especially for video calling using Skype.

It's a new HD Webcam called the FV TouchCam N1 that's the result of a partnership between faceVsion and Skype. It's the first HD Webcam that's certified by Skype.

According to faceVsion, most existing HD Webcams suffer from the same barriers when it comes to HD video communication, especially when using Skype.
