Unless you are operating on a MacBook, webcam usage on a laptop can be a tough one. You're always fumbling around with the little tripod-mounted spherical camera to get it in the perfect direction. Brando has a cheap and very convenient solution for laptop goers that need a webcam and don't want to fumble around.
The USB Mini Webcam is a tiny and simple camera attached to a flexible and bendable arm. Plug it into a USB port, position as you would like and you are ready to Skype it up with friends and family across the globe. It also many other video conferencing software and is available for $19. Given the low price, I wouldn't imagine that the video quality is something to write home about, but nevertheless, it's a good solution to webcam fumbling.
