iPhone 4 front facing camera flip

How come the iPhone 4's front-facing camera flips the picture so it looks like you are looking in a mirror? The pictures come out so that if words are included in the picture, it's backwards..Strange!

FYI - try searching next time - this has been discussed.

It's to make FaceTime more "logical" so when people move one way, it's reflected "correctly" as opposed to backwards.

Thats how all webcam/chat systems work, it reverses it so that it does look like a mirror, because that's what you expect. If it was the other way, then when you lean left, your image would lean right, and vice versa. It would look much weirder that way, trust me.
