Apple FaceTime is a feature that allows us to place video calls. Marvelous in inception and #fail in implementation, it is best explained as,
FaceTime works by connecting an iPhone 4, 4th Generation iPod touch or computer with Mac OS X to another similar device; the previous generations of iPhone and iPod Touch are not currently supported, however on the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS, users can enter facetime:// urls in Safari to trigger what appears to be a FaceTime call, although it does not truly ever successfully initiate.
To put a stake into the coffin, a recent security hole had fanboys troubled about FaceTime as it allowed anyone to change the password once the user is logged into FaceTime. Picture this. You login, leave your account open and following Murphy’s Laws, your 5-year-old son makes a few super-clicks and bang! Your account has lost its password beyond repair. Not just that, the password is changed across all of the Apple ID and you are stuck in a bad situation.
Apple has released a temporary fix. How? By disabling the button that takes you to an account page.
