Google TalkGoogle Talk is Google’s newly minted IM service. Too bad that the client software is Windows only. The upside is that you can configure a Jabber-compatible Mac Instant Messaging client (such as iChat, or GAIM) to use Google Talk if you have a GMail address.

- Choice: Get in touch how and when you want to?over email, IM or a call
– Quality: Talk through your computer but hear your friends as if they were in the same room
– Convenience: Your Gmail contacts are pre-loaded into Google Talk so inviting or talking to your friends is just a click away
