Thanks to Digital Inspiration, I have the latest version of Google Talk. If you want to know more about this version, that allows for file transfers, voicemails for offline friends and other things to make life easy, please head there. Apparently the download location is different from the standard Google Talk page, however the version doesn’t seem to be in alpha.
I am a Gtalk junkie. No other IM service has me this happy. It’s light on the memory, offers basic services. I am not too fond of the mountain of emoticons, or the memory hogger that is Y! Messenger. Skype is good, but equally memory hogging. And there simply aren’t enough people on Gizmo. The one addition that would make me really happy is an inbuilt recorder for voice conversations like the one Gizmo has.
