Ahhh...another satisfied customer...NOT! Sorry that this info isn't there,
but I'll add it as soon as I have the time.

A: you're dreaming. Unless you aren't moving around very much, I doubt that
you will get 3fps, and at 28.8 you definitely won't be able to do sustained
full-duplex audio, at least with CU-SeeMe audio, and especially if you have
video being transmitted, too.

Re Iphone for the audio: I'll defer that part to Dennis, since I haven't
actually tried the combination of CU and Iphone yet.
