Okay, so I bought a new iPod touch the other night and my sister has an iPhone, so I decided to try out this whole "FaceTime" thing. It's great! The camera is admittedly a bit awkward. You have to hold the device up in order to get a good image, but otherwise it was fun. The speaker is a bit weak but a set of earphones resolves that pretty quick.

There are some other really great and fun apps as well, iMessage is another fun way to text message without using the old cell phone.

I am looking forward to really digging into iOS 5.

Is anyone else on the iPhone or iPod touch with iOS 5?

Yeah, I have to admit facetime is great. My wife and I were able to watch our nieces open their christmas presents from the otherside of the country via a quick FaceTime. It was pretty cool.

Isn't the point of calling somebody on the phone so they can't see you?

Careful, Facetime is a battery hog and the ipod touch ain't no iphone, it doesn't have much battery to give. I only used it once in a while, didn't really mind it but didn't see the advantage, and everybody looks weird up close using it. I don't use skype video chat on my pc either though anymore, just slows down the conversation.

Caller ID was already killed prank calling.
