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).
