    FaceTime now connects your MacBook with your iPhone.

    Facetime first allowed you to video chat between iPhone 4's.

    Then Apple added iPod Touch's to the mix. Now? The Mac got on board, allowing you to video chat between any iPhone, iPod Touch and Mac.

    The software is pretty straightforward, pulling your contacts for the buddy list and using your computer's built-in webcam. When someone using a mobile device turns their device to landscape, the window automatically rotates. It seems pretty elegant, and it should make Facetime on mobile devices a lot more useful.
