1 year ago, FaceTime will be OPEN

Anyone else remember this? FaceTime was to be OPEN, that was a year ago. Still nothing. FaceTime uses the open standards, but it is not “OPEN”, meaning nobody else can play along.

How long is it going to take before we see Apple living up to their commitments? Hopefully not long, I for one would love to see a FaceTime (and iMessage) API.

IETF 80 – Prague mobile roaming no workie, SIP to the rescue

Well, I am a little sad that I have to turn ON international mobile roaming with Bell in order to get my mobile phone working here, which it is still not, but all is not lost. I have been using FaceTime over the WifI on my MacBook Air and iPhone 4 to call my business partner and my wife back home. Kinda fitting actually, FaceTime is standards based and is all about SIP and RTP etc. Now if we can just get them to open up that API…

Keep on smiling!
