Harry Rider submitted the following editorial to osOpinion/osViews which hypothesizes that the major players in IM will dominate this market by integrating VOIP technology into their client software packages. He believes that Apple’s iChat will go multiplatform after integrating VOIP technology and then will also cross-sell its iSight video conferencing camera to address customers currently paying video conference rental fees.”
