OMG!!11! Google LOL

OK, we all knew Google was releasing an Instant Messenger client, but how pissed will the gearheads be when they discover it actually isn’t configured to work with AIM/MSN/Yahoo/etc.? Yet, at least. They say in their FAQ that they’re working on it. Currently accessible only with a Gmail username.

Or! You can tap into it via other Jabber-compliant clients. Still w/ Gmail username. But basically that means that if you’re already rockin’ it Jabber-style (w/ Trillian et al) we can chat. Which is fairly excellent. Rather than have Google hack their way into AIM, Yahoo, etc. I’d just like to see everybody adopt some interoperable standards. (I wonder if they ever will? There’s kind’ve a huge incentive not to, I guess…)

P.S. It’s funny how Google applications never quite live up to my near-mythic expectations for them.

P.P.S. In that THEY DON’T INTEGRATE GOOGLE MAPS. Come on, guys. WHAT’S THE HOLD-UP??
