Google Talk folo

As long as it's still relatively fresh news, Google Talk has launched, LINK.

While VoIP and voice communication on instant messenger devices isn't anything new, certainly no other IM client has focused on it as much as Google Talk does. I mean, it's called Google Talk.

Will Google Talk actually get people to dust off their computer's microphones and actually plug them in? Google sure hopes so. While the fact that Google Talk isn't compatible with the more popular IM clients out there (AIM and MSN are the biggest) is disappointing, it does make things a little interesting. You can do the same things on Google Talk that you can on AIM, but it's far easier.

Are Verizon, Vonage and SBC all sweating it a little extra this morning?
