Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000 USB 2.0 Webcam

It’s your first year of college and your poor parents are suffering from empty nest syndrome. They just can’t help calling you at least once, if not eight times a day to check on you. So, they decided to pick up the Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000, so they can start video chatting with you too. You know, to make sure you’re eating right and that you haven’t bleached your head, pierced a nostril or even better, got that dragon tattoo you’ve been eyeing up since you turned 18.

Your father raves about how the Microsoft LifeCam features a built-in microphone and captures 30 frames per second so they can both see and hear you with impressive clarity. Mom, meanwhile, is quite excited about its broad IM compatibility - including Skype, Windows Live, and her personal favorite, Yahoo Messenger. And, of course – they won’t be deterred from annoying you with their own LifeCam, since it integrates all the cool features above. Plus, you can always amuse yourself with the video effects when your chats start to feel like Senate Hearings. What better way to scare your mom off camera than dangling a virtual spider above her head?

Your parents getting the Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000 was a no brainer. And, hey - it beats them making unannounced bi-weekly visits to your dorm!
