Ever received or made a Skype video call to somebody who was on an airplane? I can’t say I have, but the folks over at MSNBC have, in a news segment shot yesterday. Time magazine’s senior political analyst, Mark Halperin, called up the studio via Skype while in the middle of a red eye flight, and gave his opinion on Chris Christie’s speech through a video call. Not to mention, he was in the plane’s lavatory as well.
The quality of the call was pretty good, with the audio coming in loud and clear, not to mention the video wasn’t too shabby either. I guess this shows that even Skype calls on the plane are actually quite feasible. Then again, it depends on how great your connection to the internet is.
