Talk To Me, Google

Here they come again. Google continues to trasnform itself from a search company to a full-blown software company. Google Talk is both an IM and a VoIP service - you can type and speak to your buddies around the world if they also download this free client.

It's the most minimalistic IM I've ever seen, no videoconferencing, no file transfering. But that's cool because Google Talk, through retro in style, does everything it's supposed to without clutter and with incredible sound. You do need a microphone to voice chat but you then might cancel your landline it sounds so clear.

Only big issue I have is they should have consulted with me on the name. I like GTalk a bit better.
