Manufacturer info: More info

The Logitech HD Pro Webcam C510 is a middle of the road HD webcam. It sits between the C310 and the C910. It's a little better than the C310, but not quite as good as the C910. That being said this is a very capable webcam. As a matter of fact, for the money this is probably one of the best HD webcams out there.

Facebook Buying Skype? Ridiculous!

"His theory is somewhat sound. Both companies are giants in Web-based connectivity, with more than 500 million registered users apiece. Skype is taking a page out of the Netflix playbook, getting its interface into as many devices and websites as possible -- and that presumably includes warming up to Facebook to provide video chat and voice calls between confirmed friends. However, just because two companies seem to go together like peanut butter and jelly doesn't make it a sandwich.

Users wanting to call home form abroad are increasingly turning to Skype's Internet telephony service to the detriment of international carriers, new data showed.

Skype Upgrades Video For HDTV

Sophisticated videoconferencing isn't just for only large-scale enterprise users anymore. Skype and some high-definition TV suppliers have announced that they will offer videoconferencing for home users in a few months.

Skype, recently separated from eBay, said Tuesday that LG Electronics and Panasonic will begin supplying features for the service on sets they plan to market later this year. In addition to new TVs, users must purchase Web cameras with microphones.
