    Although I don’t much see the point of yet another IM service, I am definitely intrigued by the audio messaging (although I am unclear if it is real-time or what). Which is funny because you know how anxiety-prone I am about telephones.

    However, Google also doesn’t usually support Win 98 (why should it?) which is what I have at home, so I probably won’t have much opportunity to use any of the new features.

    I did get a chance to use Google Talk at work — what’s nice about it is that it really is bloat-free. It’s slim, clean, and not loaded with crap.

    So YOU’RE the Windows 98 user I keep seeing in my logs! ;)

    Alas, yes. My ghetto Toshiba laptop shows no signs of dying, so I’m loathe to spend money on a new computer until it’s absolutely necessary. I’ve heard others have had similar experiences with their old Toshibas.

    Well, props to Toshiba for making a durable beast. Go Mac when you get a new computer! ;) Or don’t. I don’t want to be That Annoying Mac Guy that everyone knows. I just happen to like them — but I fully realize they’re not for everyone. Wow, my guilt reflex really kicked in quickly on that one.
