  1. Meh, cutting edge 1995 technology. Seriously, this is what they’ve been working on for three years?

    Ah well, at least slashdot won’t have to write their own chat client now.

  2. I’m kinda bummed. Given how awesome google maps and desktop were I was expecting more. The voice part sounds good, but it’s otherwise pretty much featureless and the fact that I can add clients of other services like AIM and Yahoo (ala trillian and qnext) is a signifigant bummer.

  3. Interesting! Same Google clean n’ crisp feel to the Talk client. Was expecting to see search integrated into the client.
