    Curious if anyone knows a free way I could have my cam in my new iMac stream through the web to where I can watch it in a browser?

    we just got a new puppy and the wife would like to be able to see what he is doing while we are gone

    Apple's Quicktime Broadcaster will do what you're looking for. It's a free download and it's the only thing you'd need as long as you are just broadcasting to one location (i.e. grandma's mac). If you need to broadcast it over the web to multiple users then you will need to use this in conjunction with Streaming Server which, I believe, is part of OS X server. Not positive about that one, though.
