talk_logo.gif All the rumors were of course true; last night Google launched its own instant messaging server, Google Talk. Last night, by way of SmashsWorld hundreds of IM users got into the Google Talk using a 3rd party client, through the Jabber protocol (of course I did as well, with Adium). So many blogs, so many forum posts about this new service. I just feel bad for Yahoo! The news about this client was even on 104.3 (NY Classic Rock Station) news this morning. This is a just instant messaging client, with voice (which most IM clients have now).

Some notes: (1) They will not serve up ads in the IM client, like we joked about in the past. (2) They will not log instant messages, in accordance with the privacy policy. (3) They will not disclose any future projects or enhancements they are working on.
