Video Greeting Card from Skype fails to stop the environmental madness. Oh well, it was worth a try

Next Story

Welcome to the new CrunchGear

If you really are dumb enough to send real cardboard Christmas cards (I’m still trying to convince my family not to), then shame on you. Bad! Meanwhile for the rest of us, try a video card with Skype. You pick a card, record your own greeting and send it.

There’s a Facebook app and there’s also a standalone Skype version which lets you send messages to people who don’t use Facebook. In the standalone version, people can also embed their video messages on their blogs, as below.

The ever resourceful Techlightenment designed and built the app and We Are Social are doing the pimping… sorry “outreach program”.

Merry Christmas,
Happy Holidays,
Have a good one!

    Merry Christmas Mike and best wishes for ’09.

    Hi Mike – I’m not sure why Christmas Cards are such a bad thing? They can be from sustainably sourced timber or recycled paper.

    UnAmerican – Have you heard of Pre-Cycling? It’s not buying shit in the first place.

    That was such a lovely rendition… made me feel all warm inside, but not as much as watching you bad santa air guitar!

    Merry Christmas and a happy 2009 to all.

    I wish you’d written this BEFORE I posted you your Christmas card. Just pretend it was a birthday card instead.
