Long Past Time to Open FaceTime

Chris Adamson:

Apple still hasn’t opened up the FaceTime standard. Make no doubt about it, Apple very clearly said they were going to do this. Steve Jobs himself said so at WWDC 2010…

It seems like this is still in Apple’s interest, so my guess is that they just haven’t gotten around to it yet.

I wonder if Microsoft acquisition of Skype might have some impact. I mean, better have an open, non-exclusive standard you control somewhat than risking Microsoft becoming the dominant closed standard.
