iChat + Bluetooth Headset = Phone

Amongst others, A Whole Lotta Nothing pointed out that Apple's latest Bluetooth and iChat updates let you basically use iChat as a VoIP phone.

The news being that the latest version of iChat will work with AOL clients on the PC side as well. And just after I figured out that I could use Fire to log onto AOL with my .Mac username as well.

The Bluetooth angle is very cool. Now you can pair a Bluetooth headset with your Mac, enabling you to use it as an audio source and destination. So, wander around listening to iTunes wirelessly, then use speech control to change songs.

(Yes, Rob Local, this means that if you and I both get webcams, we'll be able to chat)
