Macworld Buying Advice
For business meetings, creative collaborations, e-learning and diagnosing and addressing computer problems from afar, Mikogo proves an excellent choice. With minimal fuss and little in the way of a learning curve, users can be up and running within a minute or two without any long term commitment or cost. Add iChat or Skype for additional interactivity and you could be saving precious time and legwork toing and froing from appointments.
