Google's Instant Messenger

Google talk

ok. so I got this yesterday and spent some time on it talking to someone. Here's my opinion on it....

It's aight! nah, the call opinion is cool and that's what I've spent most of the time on. It does cut off sometimes for no reason. It sometimes wont let me talk back to the person. Maybe that's because I'm on dial-up...I've not figured that out yet. That gets very annoying cause I end up talking to myself. It's really basic and it also doesnt tell you when someone has come online. Granted, at the moment, I only have 2 people on my list (I'm popular) but I'd like to know when a contact has either gone offline or come online. I don't feel like I'm asking for much. It also wont let you change backgrounds, font colour (that I know of), doesnt have emoticons and you cant have a display picture like on msn and yahoo and as far as I can tell, it doesnt log convos...the sounds are cool though and I dont mind them. On yahoo I did and switched them off.
It's just come out so I would think other things will be added over time..I'll stick it out and see how it goes. Just need to find others to add to my list

agag, Daniel. you love it really...it's worth checking out. really really basic but it'll pick up. if you get it now, you can turn around in a few years and say "I was one of the first to get it when it was really shit" lol
