Hi Bill and Howard,

A few points:

1) Vocaltec is planning regular beta's at seven day intervals. In fact the
most recent beta now on the web ( expires June 12.
I think this is a good way to handle beta's.

2) CompuServe has been running a special on IPhone for some time at $19.95.

3) The combination of IP and CU does seem to be the best solution for audio
and video that I've come across thus far. In fact, I have also taken a
liking to the IP4 white-board which is quite easy and rather pleasant to use.
