OK, so now my wonderful MacBook Pro sports this tiny little webcam in it. I turn it on to see...

...and quickly turn it off.

OK geeks, we need to do something here if video conferencing is ever to really take off.

I know I have a prominent chin for a woman, but this %$^$% distortion is Just Not Fair!

Any other ladies here see this as a problem? If this truly takes off, I see a surge in chin reduction plastic surgery (and we'll all look pretty dorky in real life!)

And here I was all excited about the topic header... [evil]

MMG it could be a whole range of factors. Lighting, for one. I can't use my cam at night because the light in my room is over my shoulder and I end up being a dark shadow. I really need to get a desk lamp.

The solution is simple, just remove your shirt before beginning the video conference.
No-one will be looking at your chin.

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

TFD wins this conversation. There is no point in continuing.

The end.
