“I’m betting a FaceTime-equipped iTV device will create entire new legions of rabid, insane, Apple fans.”
Indeed. FaceTime’s biggest drawback today, besides being restricted to Wi-Fi, is that both parties must have an iPhone 4 to participate. As soon as Apple can expand that pool of people, its popularity will explode, not to mention the device that made it happen. Use FaceTime once and you’re instantly hooked.
