iPad on TV: Covert iAffairs


It’s been a while since we looked at the increasingly prevalent role the iPad plays in today’s media but tonight’s Covert Affairs put the iPad so very “front and center” that we had to post…


Annie Walker is on a mission when her sister places a “call” to her. “Ring, Ring Ring” goes Annie’s iPad. She answers and the conversation ensues.


But wait one second… they’re using Skype??? Say what? Seriously Annie? Skype? Sure it works well enough but for my money I’ll always take FaceTime over Skype. The connection FaceTime offers is no less than amazing and since both you and your sister are using Apple products it is a no-brainer. Go FaceTime Annie…

  1. Yeah, but Skype works on Annie’s iPad when she’s using the 3G connection.  Facetime requires WiFi, does it not?

  2. Congratulations, I was wondering who was going to be the first person to point that out. I have no idea if she was on Wi-Fi or 3G but I’m going to go with a café having Wi-Fi. But you are Skype will go over 3G although not very clearly a lot of the time.
