Yes. All answers are according to a ex-co-worker of mine who is now in
charge of many issues surrounding the Connectix QuickCam.

It was up for FCC approval recently, and if it got it then it should be
shipping by the middle of October 94.

Given Connectix's sucess with doing good Mac things, it should work with
all Macs.

>3. How much will it cost ?

You can order it for about US$100 today. I ordered my three or four weeks ago.

>4. Is it compatible with CU-SeeMe

The QuickCam people are aware of our desire to use the camera for CUSM, and
I'm sure they'll test it. No guarantees for revision 1.0 (my comment).

When I get my camera I'll post results if someone hasn't done so already.
