Does the sound of “VoIP” or “voice over IP” scare you? Have you been interested, but think it’s just too complicated? It really isn’t. Follow a few simple steps below and you’ll be happy you did! My grandparents are 600 miles away, and my cousin just left for Afghanistan. Using a webcam with Skype, it’s like we’re all chatting around the same table. No joke.
If you want to do things right and make this as easy as possible, purchase a webcam with a built in mic. I suggest the Logitech QuickCam Pro. This takes a lot of hassle and wires out of the equation. Any webcam will work – check your local office supply store. Again, look for the mic built in.
