Do you have loved ones who live far away? How do you communicate with them? With the technology available today, there are several ways to connect with family and friends. But now more than ever, there are technologies and products that will put you face-to-face with the people that matter to you the most.

With Cisco ūmi (pronounced You-Me) — a first of its kind video calling system that works through any HD TV — moms can connect live with their family and friends to share all of life’s special moments live through the television, from the comfort of their living room couch. Mother’s Day is just around the corner and moms, grandmothers, and sisters across the country can celebrate with their loved ones face-to-face, whether near or far.
