Next Mac OS to Include VoIP in iChat

by Bruce Stewart

Andy's finding all the good stuff tonight! Besides his pointer about Cingular warming up to VoIP, he's also noticed a report on Apple Insider about VoIP capabilities being included in the next version of the Mac OS. The upcoming Mac operating system, codenamed Leopard, is expected to include a new version of Apple's iChat IM program that will now support VoIP calling. Leopard is planned to be unveiled at the upcoming Apple World Wide Developers Conference this August. Many people have been waiting for and expecting this development, but it's not really earth-shattering news as this just gets Apple caught up to where Yahoo!, Google, and Microsoft already are with their IM clients.
