When will it end? Google are rolling out an endless line of different (albeit high quality) products. GMail, GoogleEarth, GoogleDesktop and now GoogleTalk… there seems to be no end in sight.
When coupled with the fact that Google apparently want to enable the entire city of Los Angeles for WiFi (yes, the entire city), one could almost be forgiven for thinking some kind of world-takeover was in progress.
Today though, Google is set to take on online voice and instant messaging service like MSN, Ventrillo and Skype. They have just released a free piece of software in BETA called GoogleTalk which lets GMail account holders talk to each other via a PC, microphone and speakers.
Anyone interested? Of course you are. The advantage is its a lot, lot cleaner than MSN Messenger (although MSN does some more clever things). The interface here is delightfully simple and clean.
