Apple’s FaceTime beta is dead. Long live FaceTime 1.0! Apple’s video chat software for communicating between Macs and video-capable iOS devices has hit version 1.0 and entered the Mac App Store. FaceTime for Mac now supports HD video calls. Supported Intel-based Macs can receive HD video from HD-sending devices, and the newest MacBook Pros can send HD video from their new FaceTime cameras. Also new is the much-appreciated capability to edit and add FaceTime contacts without needing to launch Address Book. FaceTime is available for free with the new MacBook Pros, but costs everyone else 99¢. ($0.99 new, 16.8 MB)
View Smart Folder Criteria
Smart Folders, folders that contain the results of a Finder search, typically display without the original search criteria listed. However, you can see the search criteria by selecting Show Search Criteria from the window's Action menu (the gear icon). Additionally, any edits to a smart folder's criteria will automatically be listed the next time you open the folder.

What if I gave you 99¢?
I'm with Greg C... Cheap Bastards Unite!
Oh but I do like to buy dollar apps and then leave one star reviews because they're not free. Just to make a point. Or something.
I downloaded and set up the beta, but never used it or found it very interesting. Nobody I'm interested in calling, really, who has compatible gear.
So for free I might download the 1.0 release to check it out and have it around in case something changes, but I can't see the point in spending the buck with no expectation I'll use the software.
Now, when someone buys my family a round of new iPhones all bets are off and it may be a dollar well spent. (We do all have iChat AV on our Macs, but never use that either. Or Skype for that matter. We're just boring.)
I rarely use FaceTime or Skype video or what have you, but I really appreciate it when I have it.
