    I have had my mac for around 9 months now and I don't think I have used the iSight camera except for taking initial pictures for the log-in icons. Can anyone tell me any applications that you use the iSight camera with? I use MSN messenger but I don't believe I can have live video chats so I'm trying to see what use it is having this webcam built in.

    Thanks,

    Never have in the past year and probably never will.

    Before I even had a Mac, I had a HP with a cam on it and never used the cam once.

    I use it for "Post your last purchase" and "Post the t-shirt/top you are wearing right now."

    Don't have a "Significant other" at the moment.

    That's about it.

    Apart from obtaining pictures for posting here it's only ever used for Skype, but I suppose that's a yes.

    For Skype a couple of times, and for Delicious Library (I downloaded the demo and became hooked.. I currently have about half my books in it, and scan a few each night :D).

    rarely, but sometimes.

    I've made a few Youtube Video Blogs with it, taken pictures and webcammed with it. Would probably use it more if Adium supported video chat. But alas, it does not.
