Background and Research: Webcam Wonder
Our research has found that customers are using their webcams in more places and on multiple computers, so Microsoft Hardware created a webcam that is perfect for use with both notebook and desktop computers. The unique attachment base allows it to mold to virtually any screen, or sit directly on the desk.
MSN Photo Swap is a special feature that lets consumers share digital photos in mid-video conversation and see real-time reactions as both callers view the pictures. Digital camera owners have on average more than 1,200 photos stored on their computer,1 and Photo Swap helps bring those pictures to life. Using Windows Live Messenger, consumers can easily share pictures from summer vacations or holiday gatherings.
