Gosh Bill this is good news. THANKS for the info. I have been putting off
getting Iphone because much of my work is cross-platform (PC and Mac) and I
am waiting for a cross-platform solution.

But your information should be interesting to White Pine. Let's hope that CU
emerges as THE cross-platform video AND audio solution. That would be great.

And if Iphone works well at 14.4 just imagine what it might be like on
ISDN?!?! What is your opinion of ECU's audio. It does appear much better
than non-enhanced version. I've been running experiments on ISDN
connections, but I must say I am still very disappointed with audio performance.
