Default Google Talk

I have Google Talk but not many people on my list.

If you have it... add me. If not get it.... if you need a Gmail account let me know... I have 47 to give away.

I was talking to people tonight with it and the sound quality is amazing.

C'mon... lets get talking.

Get Google Talk

Google Talk friggen' sucks, and I rarely say that about Google. But it's Windows-only and offers zero new features, while not offering ones others use. And if I want voice, I'll use Skype. I don't want 548528 different IM clients, so I use a universal one (Adium).

Here's a fun Google quirk-- run a search on Google for the word "failure."

...you forgot to say that you have to hit "I feel lucky" rather than "search" It's easy to create those spoofs if you know how to "Google Bomb." (i.e., make sure your site gets the most hits for a certain word or phrase, so that it's the first result Google will return if you type in the word or phrase).

I also note that the site with the second-most amount of hits for failure is michaelmoore.com, so clearly there's a little google-bombing contest going on between the liberal and conservative hacks with nothing better to do.

You don't have to hit "I feel lucky." It will pop up on "search."

Right, but it works better as a punchline if you hit "I feel lucky" (which just takes you to the top web page for that word).
