I hate when the biggest news of the day is boring to me. But the fact that Google has come out with just what the world needs (yet another Instant Messaging client) just makes me want to go back to bed and sleep for a while. IM has been around for how long? Why do we need another one? When did Google stop focusing on its core product and start branching out into a bunch of silly nonsense? If this was some new technology that would blow us all away, I might be able to forgive them for straying so far from their purpose, but it is not. I am so unimpressed I am not even going to discuss it further. You can read all about it nearly anywhere. Here is one place to get more info.
