So, Google Talk is finally here.
After all of the hype and the rumors. I wondered how Google would innovate in the IM arena, with the likes of Skype around.
There are a few nice features such as popping up the messages, simple clean interface, and the fact that it is Jabber based.
But, how come most of the developers I know at Google are Mac guys, yet the Mac is such a poor man wrt Google products. No client?
I know I can use Adium/Trillian etc….
I guess I am not quite seeing the value add yet (apart from having gmail integration ;). Seems a little rushed out?
I do grok that Mac penetration != Windows penetration, and I know that it isn’t that most developers @ Google are Macers (note: ‘who I know’), but I just can’t help thinking of Bob and co. :)
