You would be forgiven in thinking that now the 3G iPhone has been announced that Apple would be free of rumours.

But, as the tech community likes a bit of gossip, there’s more speculation surrounding its products. This time it’s the iSight that’s subject to tittle-tattle

iSight for sore eyes

The blogosphere is alight with talk that iSight is to get the hi-def treatment. The webcam, which was released in 2003 and discontinued in 2006, may well make a comeback as iSight HD (for obvious reasons), according to MacRumors.

And how did something like this leak out of an almost water-tight company? Well, it didn’t. Someone has taken a look at QuickTime service files and found a mention of iSight – clever stuff. In the files, they found a line that said: "Next Generation USB iSight."

If released, the webcam will go into direct competition with Logitech which has been dominating the HD webcam market since 2006.
