First the comment on the 3-Com PCI video phone/video capture card for the PC: My problem with the ones I bought at Christmas was that it took FOUR technical support calls and talks with 6 technical support people at 3-Com, the motherboard maker, and the BIOS maker, before I could get my 3-Com product to function. I even had to read the box info to one of the 3-Com support people to get him to go beyond telling me to return my AMD-400-based PC and buy one with a different chip and different brand of bus master. I still haven't been able to connect with our daughter in Lubbock who got the other, because her husband tried and failed to install it properly (apparently). If the 3-Com phones were to connect, the picture would only be about 3 or so inches diagonal. We can see OURSELVES, and the picture there is good. Also, if we were to connect, the transfer speed is up to 30 fps, depending on the connection (thus, seems broadband ready). Anyway, I don't think 3-Com's latest product solves the problems I've encountered. I wish I'd gone with the simplicity of 8x8's VIA-TV. My story's old news, but I think it still pertains to 3-Com's NEW news.
Now the question. Why should it take two years to upgrade Time Warner's cable in some places (e.g. San Antonio) to allow two-way communication. Doesn't 8x8's Audacity chip allow this over existing cable?
Of course the biggest question is: Why a price in the 4s???? (but I think I've read enough here about prices, so let's skip that one)
about the price action. I hate to see a drop to $4 but it certainly is possible. I will say that after a week or two has passed since the earnings announcement, I feel a hum-dinger of a press release coming on.
