When I was little and phones with video just came out (for the low, low price of like $2000), there was nothing in the world I wanted more. My dad lived all the way in either Minnesota or Michigan, and I thought it would be the coolest thing to be able to see him while we talked. We talked about getting one all the time; but like I said, it was almost $2000 to get a pair. My dad and I talked about that while chatting on Skype tonight during dinner...for FREE! Gosh, I love Skype. It really is a blessing, especially when raising kids a thousand miles from my family.
