I mostly sat there thinking my computer can do that?
I just walked by it 30 minutes ago. I wouldn't have given it a second look if not for this episode and this thread.
Haha! Me too!
Multiple simultaneous FaceTime calls are a fantasy, right?
For now, yes. I wouldn't put it past Apple to try to replicate this eventually though.
It bugs me that every time one sees a video chat on tv, the person being viewed is always looking straight into the camera/the person on the other end of the chat. Every time I've tried to do it, the person I'm viewing seems to be looking at something on the desk top, because of the placement of the camera. I try looking at the camera so the other person gets a natural view of me, but then I can't see them. Bah.
Off topic but not really since this show is so dependent on video chats, is there any way to do a chat and make it look right? I once had a little camera on a stalk that I could place so it was smack in the middle of my screen, and that was pretty good. But all builti in cameras result in the downward looking view.
This should be in the 'annoy' thread so I'll copy it over there.
You're right, and it's something I've mentioned to people who need to do video conferencing, particularly for interviews. Even with built-in cameras on laptops, the difference in gaze is slight, but noticeable on the other end.
You can correct for it by putting the camera in front of the screen, like you did, but that kind of defeats the purpose. If you move the video window to directly under the camera, it helps, but the best way is really just train yourself to look dead-on at the camera lens. Once you practice a bit, it's not that hard to get into that habit.
I've had an iPhone since 2007 and I have never once used Facetime! Everybody I know is an Android user, so I Skype.
That was pretty cool episode though, I really enjoyed it. My husband deletes everything instantly, I would have liked to have seen it twice to catch some of the jokes.
Well, you're not alone... since nobody could use Facetime until 2010 when the first front-facing camera were available on the iPhone 4!!
Sony Ericsson Z1010 – World’s First Phone with a Front-Facing Camera
"The Japanese Multinational company introduced this smartphone in the Q4 of 2003 ..."
Still can't run FaceTime which was my point. Not that iPhone was the first phone with a FFC. Since we're really only talking about the Apple ecosystem here.
Same with my wife & I. And we enjoyed this episode too. We never once even mentioned the name Apple while watching it either.
found this episode amusing and a very good snapshot of communication in 2015 between family members.
it completely delivered for me.
I just watched it for the first time, will watch again and freeze a few frames when I get a chance. I like most of their episodes but really enjoyed this one. For those who deleted but want to watch again, free Hulu has it until 4/2.
I just got around to watching this today. I lol'd a bunch of times. I couldn't believe how fast they were snapping their lines out.
My biggest laugh was "Tell her I'm in the shower!" And when Haley came stumbling out of the bedroom. And, I liked Claire doing the last minute gift order while talking to Mitchell.
I imagine there was a lot of post production on the Facebook pages and other graphics.
Can you actually IM from a Mac?
Think I'll hang onto this ep and watch it again in a week or so.
No, I'm not.
Yes, you can IM from a Mac. For the last twenty years or so.
Almost everything this episode showed was Mac-native capability. The only bit of fakery was multi-party FaceTime calls, which do not exist.
