    Does anybody know if it would be possible to develop a computer application that uses the FaceTime standard? If I remember correctly, Steve pointed out that it'll be an open standard - but would it technically be possible for 3rd party developers to use the standard for computer apps?

    I want to be able to FaceTime chat with someone on their computer with them using skype or gmail.

    I hope that is in the works.

    It would be REALLY nice if that were possible.... I don't believed they have released it yet though so I don't think anyone really knows what will be possible yet.

    A developer could always make something that doesn't use FaceTime.
