Introducing Google Talk (GIM?)

GIM is here!By Michelle Cheung

Christmas has come early for nerds geeks around the world. Well… on the West Coast at least. Google Talk has come out several hours before Wednesday, thanks to a tip by my friend omar.

It works like Gmail and people will need to have an invite in order to use it. It comes with pleasant sound effects and a clean interface. It doesn’t seem like it has file sharing capability like AIM and MSN. It does allow your to “Call” your friends on the list. Skype will be peeing its VoIP pants now.

It doesn’t come with a lot of features (less than AIM I would say), but maybe that’s the beauty of it: keeping it simple. And if you have Gmail, you’re already registerd. So go on, give it a try. You know you want to.

Check out Google Talk.

  1. Can you call normal landline phones with Google talk? I know Skype can. Then what really is the difference between Google talk and MSN or AIM or YAHOO? why should people bother to convert to Google Talk?
