    Mac to PC "Voice" Chat?
    I currently use Yahoo Messenger to "talk" to my Australian friend but my PC is nearly "dead"....

    I'm getting a new MBP in about 2 days.. is there something my mac will be compatible with to handle voice chat...
    OR
    is there a program that will let us "voice" with each using our different platforms?

    We don't need anything with video.... just "voice"....

    Thanks....

    Wanted to post yesterday... can't use Skype.... the person I talk to is on limited bandwidth and it seems it's not a very good idea to use it. From what was found - the program piggybacks other users who have higher usage or clearer quality or if idle.. will pull from that source.... (??????)

    So we found another once called bitwiseIM.... We're going to test it out tonight and find out how this one works... but seems promising.... website is http://www.bitwiseim.com
