    Does a third dimension add anything to the Minoru 3D webcam, or is it just a gimmick?

    Apple introduced system-wide support for USB webcams in the Mac OS X 10.4.9 update. So, even though on Logitech's site this camera and others don't appear to be Mac compatible, they are, and Logitech hasn't picked up on this or needs to update its site

    Of all the things that are dropped off by the PCF postal pigeon, low-cost webcams get us about as excited as the prospect of a wet Wednesday with the Phone Box Enthusiasts Club of Great Britain

    Hercules Dualpix HD webcam review

    Hercules Dualpix HD webcam review

    8

    It's easy to be paranoid in this era of data theft, identity theft and, well, bog-standard theft. Linksys hopes to ease your cold sweat with an internet camera that can be accessed and viewed from anywhere in the world

    Logitech Quickcam Notebook Deluxe review

    Anyone with a broadband connection will know how video is changing the way we communicate over the Internet. If you're laptop doesn't have a built-in webcam, this is a neat device that clips on to the top of your screen

    The decision-making process behind this sort of product always amuses us no end, you know. "Those blog things are popular on the interwebs," the suits must think. "Let's call our latest camera a Blog Webcam."
