While people are finding many versatile uses for Apple's i Chat AV software, they're not yet using it much for what it was intended – video conferencing.
Marc Zeedar has found a novel use for Apple Computer's new i Chat video-conferencing software – broadcasting pay-per-view soccer games to his brother across town.
But when his Ti Vo is plugged into the camera, Zeedar can broadcast pay-per-view soccer games to others.
Zeedar has used i Chat AV for other things, too, like remotely trouble-shooting a friend's Mac (his friend copied error messages into the software's text window) and making free international phone calls with the audio chat component.)Watch an i Chat video conference) with Apple product managers.

"When ringing a stranger, for example, there's how to start the conversation, or the who-hangs-up-first question.
Messages in Mac OS X has two methods of time-stamping messages; an automatically applied timestamp when a new conversation starts or message is received, and a lesser known ability to view the timestamp of any i Message or text message sent with the Mac Messages app.
