One of the cool technologies that is available now and just hasn't really caught on is video calling. You can place video calls from your computer today using a webcam, but most users still prefer to just text or IM.
Logitech unveiled its slick Vid software a while back that makes setting up and placing video calls much easier to do than it was previously. Logitech's Vid software allows users to send requests for video calls just as they would a normal IM and the software does the rest. Vid supports full HD resolution chats as well.
Logitech has announced that it has signed up its one millionth Vid user since the software launched only a few months ago. The big reason the software has proven so popular is that it is free for users and can be set up in about half the steps of competing solutions. The Vid software works with both Windows and Mac systems.
