Win A BuddyCam Starter Pack (Webcam, Earbuds and more)!

CONTESTS, REVIEWS & CONTESTS | | January 18, 2011 at 9:29 pm

CONTEST CLOSED!

Congratulations Mandala!

Do you love Skype? If you did you would. There are so many tales I could share with you about Skype. Like when my sisters in SouthAfrica saw their nieces for the first time over Skype. Or the time my friend celebrated her kids birthday over Skype. While technology is often thought of in cold non-social terms the very purpose of Skype is to connect. I could use it to text chat, video chat and voice chat. Of course video adds so much to the whole conversation, even if you’re in your pjs. I have been lucky enough to have a built-in web-cam on my laptop and have used it extensively, hubby on the other hand had an older computer before and struggled with interviews.

We got to check out a few webcams that are offered by Skype. When we spied the HD webcam – one we knew what a welcome addition it was. You never know what you are missing in clarity unless you are using HD. When you are dealing with bandwidth etc all the help you can get with quality. The fact that it was a clip on totally helped.

The BuddyCam webcam looks like a little character. A cute little character that has a silicone like exterior. So the 2 little feet mean it has a built-in stand. It just connects via a USB port. There are a variety of colors to match the mood or decor.  What I love the most about it? It is the perfect addition to a children’s computer area. Robust enough to with-stand their not so delicate touches (because you there will be plenty of that). I love when things look cool and yet are functional.

Giveaways open to US Mailing Addresses only.

Want to Win a A BuddyCam Starter pack that includes a BuddyCam, earbuds, and a Skype case?
