    10 way video chat sounds like a good way to really bog down your internet connection. not to mention the people would look really small on a laptop screen.

    Stop scouring for things to complain about. It offers up to ten-way video conference...you don't have to fully utilise a positive new feature.

    10 way video chat would be awesome on an lcd tv and a descent connection. Online SGI anyone?
