iChat let's you do audio and video conferencing. Although, it doesn't do cross platforming, but, all the more reason for other people to get Macs as well.
Hackers target net call systems
Old-fashioned phone, Eyewire Net phone systems could prove irresistible to hackers. Malicious hackers are turning their attention to the technology behind net phone calls, says a report.
The biannual Symantec Threat Report identified Voice over IP (Voip) systems as a technology starting to interest hi-tech criminals.
The report predicted that within 18 months, Voip will start to be used as a "significant" attack vector.
As well as prompting new attacks, Voip could also resurrect some old hacking techniques, warned the report.

There is a way to make calls free all the time. The other party just needs to belong to the same SIP service as you do.
