BellSouth touts video IM

BellSouth customers will soon be able to chat face to face over the carrier's DSL service.

Soon customers of BellSouthÂ’s DSL service will be able to chat face to face with their friends and family over the Internet. The regional phone company announced yesterday that it is trialing a video chat service that allows customers with a Webcam and microphone to chat through the BellSouth instant-messaging client.

Call me old fashioned, but I think IÂ’d rather stick with the kind of IM where no one has to know that I am sitting at my computer in my pajamas.
