    I have a G4 PowerBook and I recently got a LG U890 mobile phone. I was wondering if anyone knows how I could use the phone as a bluetooth webcam. I see from a google search that some people have done it on a nokia but using windows. Any ideas??

    No idea, but it would be a neat trick if you figure it out. :)

    Movino a very nice and user friendly application for Mac. Using this application you can use your mobile phone camera as a webcam. The best part is, it can be connected via bluetooth and you can take it anywhere you want.
    For installation files just go to this link Movino Tested on Nokia E71.

    1.Download a broadcasting application for your phone. Then install it on your phone.
    * For example for Nokia S60 3rd Edition, Feature Pack 1 download movino_s60_v3.sisx
    2.Also download the GUI application and a QuickTime component for Mac OS X movino-osx-1.01.dmg.
    * To install the main application, just drag it to your application folder.
    * To install the QuickTime component(MovinoQT.component), drag it into the Library/QuickTime
    directory, either the system-wide directory or the user-specific directory.
    * Installation is complete.
    3. Now Switch on bluetooth on your Mac/Mobile.
    4. Run the movino application on your Mac.
    5. Run the movino on your mobile phone and click options go to connect and choose bluetooth select your Mac
    and thats it you're done
    Enjoy free webcam :D :D :D :D :D
