    I'm curious how many people actually use their iSight regularly. I've had my iMac G5 for about a year and a half now, and I've used it maybe 3 times total.

    So if you have a built-in iSight, how often do you use it?

    I've got a daemon running that will take an iSight photo capture and email it to me if any failed login attempts are made. Just one more wall of computer security.

    About once a week- more in the coming months. My brother moved to Boston, so we video chat once in a while- also great for when we play some Diablo once in awhile. I have a cousin with a macbook that's moving to Miami- that will be another upcoming occasional video chat. I'm also thinking of moving to New Zealand for a year- if (hopfully, when) that happens, I expect the video chatting to dramatically increase.

    OK, I just did an video chat with my 2 year old daughter (who is about 40 miles away), and it was the best thing ever : ) First worthwhile use of the iSight!

    I just got my Macbook (first Mac :) ) a couple days ago and Ive been using it a couple times a day. Though Ive been playing around with photobooth and comiclife quite a bit, so I can't really say how long this trend will hold.

    I have been using mine daily for the past week. I am a proud new SR MBP owner and love playing with photobooth. I can't wait to start using the Ichat function with the camera. :D

    I use it almost everyday to see my wife and daughter while I am gone. Works great.

    I haven't used my MacBook's iSight for video chat since I got it. My friend, however, loves PhotoBooth and uses it every time he comes over. I've got some strange looking pictures. :)

    I think it's called MacLoJack, just google it.

    I use it daily to keep tabs with my mom and sister via iChat. Multi-Video Chat, IMO, is so cool and convenient! Of course, this is only made possible because my Mom and sister also own Macs

    I use it pretty much every weekend, to scan new DVD's and stuff into delicious library

    Used it twice on photobooth, never on iChat, if leopard's iChat includes msn intregration of some kind (heard it might support 3rd party IM's such as adium) then i'll probably be using it much more, unless my kid brother see's the light and gets a mac himself

    Because of the higer iSight resolution on the new MBPs (1280 x 1024) I use mine as a quickie document scanner in the field: I hold up a prnted page to it and, back at the office, I can read the whole thing.

    I love the isight I've wasted a lot of time with Photobooth.

    MacLoJack is useful, but that wasn't what I was talking about above.
