I am having issues with my webcam on Yahoo Messanger for Mac. My friend is obviously not on a Mac. Is there a way to make it so he can view my webcam and we can video chat? He says it won't let him. I send him an invite to view it, but it won't let him accept it.

I know sometimes when someone else is not on the same version of Yahoo Messenger or Adobe flash player it causes this conflict as well ask him about it.

EH... I am not going to worry about it. I can video chat with him on Skype. It's just kind of annoying.

I agree it is annoying...I say if Skype works for the both of you guys then go for it.

Thanks for your response. I was told OS X Lion may fix the issues. I highly doubt that. Do you have an idea on when it will be released? They say late July.

Your welcome dude. From what Apple claims today (Wednesday) they'll be releasing Mac Lion 10.7 via Mac App Store sometime today from what this website claims:

Wow. I'm excited, only because I get Lion for free because I purchased my Mac just in time. Is it worth staying up for or you doubt it'll be released tonight? I'll still have to send in my request to get the download.

That is pretty cool! Make sure you submit for the download. Some people are plan on staying up late just incase Apple does release the new Mac OS X 10.7 Lion operating software. I might stay up but not sure as of yet but it's likely if I can't sleep.

Awesome. If you wanna chat we could instant message or something. Always cool to meet others who have same laptop. I'm still somewhat new to the Mac world.

I don't really chat much via instant messenger sorry. Welcome to the Mac world! Like they say once you go Mac you never go back. I've been a Apple Mac Pro user for a year now coming from a PC - Laptop my last laptop was a Dell 700m laptop I miss it but the Macbook Pro is my baby. I love it.

My story is kind of funny. I had a HP Laptop which I liked and it lasted me two years, but had a bunch of issues, so my sister got a Mac and loved it so I had to get one. I still use my old laptop because taking quizzes on macbook does not work - it won't let me go further down the page. I don't know, but anyways... I love Mac. I also have an iPhone 4 of course.

Since I travel a lot I bought Lojack for my laptop going to Aiport to Airport, Plane to Plane and etc I just don't want to take a chance of someone taking my laptop and them scoring big on my Apple Macbook Pro. What Lojack does is this it runs in the background...If someone steals your laptop or mine for instance I just report to the law enforcement, file a theft through Lojacks website and lock & delete my files and they can find my laptop once the theif logs on the to the internet and it takes the persons picture to. If you have a questions feel free to ask them here at EIC! We are a great bunch of people. I learn things from some of the guys and ladies here.

Well, I don't think I need lojack. The only time I would get my laptop stolen is if someone breaks into my apartment or my dorm room on college campus. But I'm sure it's great to have when you travel a lot.

Yeah Lojack is a must have for someone who travels a lot and so forth I like the program works well with my computer it even has a map of the IP location where your desktop/laptop is. I guess it all depends on the person and etc.
