Well there have been rumors floating around about Google launching an Instant Messenger. Now the rumors are saying it will happen Wednessday. Here's a CNN article. And Slashdot.

So has anyone heard anything about this other than what is stated in those articles? Anyone refusing to use this?

I heard of this. They bought out some other IM company that i'd never heard of. They publically said that this is a rumor I believe, but I guess its no longer a rumor. We talked a bit about it on the last STFU radio.

I'm logged in right now.
Since they are using the Jabber protocol, all I needed to do was go into Gaim, create a new jabber account.
Settings:
Screen Name: [gmail user]
Server: gmail.com
Resource: Gaim
Password: [gmail password]
Alias: [your name]
Now click on "Show more options"
Check "Use TLS if avalible"
Port: 5222
Connect server: talk.google.com

And that's it.

My theory on why Google has done this is merely to pimp out their email service. If this catches on, imagine how many people they will get to sign up for an account. Plus the account has value, unlike throwaway yahoo or juno accounts.

I think it should have a more streamlined process for emailing users that are away. A program like this would have the oppurtunuty to eradicate the line between email and instant messaging.

gtalk or gtalkr or google talk, basically its just a IM from google. or just login to your gmail account, and chat with people from there...
