Contest: Creative Webcam Giveaway

Contest: Creative Webcam Giveaway

I’ve got around a dozen brand new webcams from Creative. Will be giving them out to readers here — just answer this simple question.

What app/software do you use for video messaging?



I’ll randomly pick out 4 commenters and send them this webcam (comes with a leather pouch).

If you blog about this contest, you can also get the chance to win 4 more of these. That’s 8 in total I’ll ship to you (anywhere in the Philippines). Will announce the winners on Monday evening when I get back from my Singapore trip.

Thanks to our friends at Axis Global Technologies for the free stuff.

  15. What a coincidence !

    Just today I helped fix my friend’s mom’s computer and she was using exactly the same creative web cam.

    Guess what, it works on Skype with Ubuntu Linux !

    My friend and his family happens to be in New Zealand and he keeps in touch with his folks using Skype. With broadband and the webcam it feels like they never left :-)

    Back to the question, I use Skype !

    skype/yahoo messenger/msn

  35. Bon says:

    I use Skype as well. I find it to be the app best able to configure itself to work through funky firewalls and router configurations, and its peer-to-peer architecture seems to make best use of one’s bandwidth. Skype’s multiplatform support is a huge advantage.
