Gratuitous Google post

In an effort to expand their internet services, Google has now linked it's "Google Talk" instant messenger client and it's Gmail system. I've tried it, and it's actually a pretty slick system. Chat sessions over Google Talk are automatically archived and saved to the g'mail space. Of course there's also an 'off the record' option for when you don't want to record your conversations.

The Google Talk system is actually pretty handy as a mail notification program. The only drawback I see is that not too many people seem to be using it. At least not too many when compared to AIM. Still, given the popularity of Gmail, I wouldn't be surprised if Google Talk picks up quite a bit of business.
