Video conferencing is a wonderful tool but sometimes it would be nice to send a video message to a friend or loved one. Well thanks to MailVU you can, and it’s super simple. All you need is a computer and webcam. The program is integrated into the website so there are no applications to download. And it works with almost any computer, operating system and browser. Jude and I recorded a message and sent it to Joe while he was at work. It was super easy and only took a few minutes. (I did encounter a compatibility issue while using FireFox on my Mac but every other computer and browser I used worked great.)
