Webcam Work-around

David Passell passes along this news: "Radio Shack has a sale on the Gigaware Webcam with Mike for $19.99 (+ tax). The instructions and disk specified Windows (XP or Vista; no wonder it is on sale). However; I bought one and plugged it into my Mac Mini USB input. I got image and sound (with some setting up) using Quick Time 10, VLC, and Skype. You may have to tweak a bit, but it can be used."  We can envision David's smile as he adds,  "One of my pet annoyances is the total ignorance (and sales loss) of people who only can read what is on the side of the box. (My other one is forgetting what I did two years ago : (.)"
