    I'm not so sure. If you follow the link to the story, they say the patent has been worked on since 1995 and there is a screen shot. I believe this is old "QuickTime Conferencing" material....if you remember those days. QTC was way ahead of its time.

    I agree. That is a very old screenshot. Note how they don't give a date on the patent.
