Google Blog

Google Blog:
"It's called Google Talk — a small program that lets you call and IM other Google Talk friends over the Internet for free. We're releasing it in beta today for all Gmail users (once you sign on, you can start inviting any of your friends to try it too)."

Okay, so there's a lot of buzz going on about Google Talk. A bit of viral marketing here, some rumour there, and the big G brandname, and all of a sudden it's the Next Big Thing. Well, being on a mac, I am not impressed. Why no mac client? It runs Jabber, and there are scads of open-source Jabber clients for mac. For a company with as much know-how as Google, I have a hard time accepting that macs are so hard to develop for that they can never release these things in tandem. I mean, I'm still waiting on Google Earth.

Google, boo for helping the Windows monopoly.
