They could also use a private team speak / ventrilo / etc. server but I would hazard a guess that most of it is done via throw away cell phones.. so let's take away Mobil phones from everyone? Really this whole speiel sounds a lot like the whole " gateway drug" dispute.

Personally I would have to think that the issue is that there aren't enough insiders that actually use webcams to complain about the issue before it is released. I am an insider, I HAVE a webcam, but I haven't used it in about 2 years. Our business just tends to use voice much more than video.

Not all. There are plenty of businesses out there that are still using windows xp either due to compatibility with older special in house programs or they just don't have the money to upgrade their systems. Unfortunately I fall in to the later. Upgrading 68 systems to windows 7 or above is a huge cost for us and the general consensus from upper management is if it isn't broken don't fix it. so, on average we replace 4-6 systems a year. Figure by 2025 we should finally be off of xp.
