    they gotta be working on it, I mean they have it set up to work with iPod touches so it's only a matter of time. I bet by the time iPad 2 comes out there will be facetime on our computers as well.

    The 4.2 update that is due to be released in November will let you stream content using AirPlay from your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch directly to the New Apple TV, not the old one.

    In fairness, there's probably more people working on the new version of the Remote app since I'm sure it needs a lot of new artwork and features than it had before to be a worthwhile, elegant remote control for the Apple TV.

    I think iChat support and more is likely to come before the end of the year. Apple still hasn't released the FT frameworks but, they are supposed to be out soon. Point being that whether it is Apple developed or not: once the framework is out we *should get iChat, Skype, etc integration (even if its just a custom prefs plist).

    Access to the cameras is already available so I'm hopefull that we'll see proprietary clients out very soon (ie: Skype with Video, Fring officially supported, a new version of PocketBone and more).

    Being able to facetime my parents through my iphone using their mac would be great. I wonder why Apple has not addressed this.
