Google Talk

Writing about web page

Looks like Google has rolled out yet another service…there really is just nothing slowing them down.

They have released in Beta a service called Google Talk which is basically their take on IM'ing (MSN,AIM,ICQ,etc.). It's based on the Jabber protocol so that you don't even have to use their client if you don't want to, but judging by the usability of their other products, you may as well.

You can login with your GMail account (which I just realised is still invite only…although everyone has millions of invites) and start IM'ing straight away.

It's hard to tell what affect this is going to have…are people really ready to move away from MSN, AIM, Yahoo, ICQ and co.?

I won't go into it's features because I've not even tried it yet, but you can find out more here on their Getting Started page

Finding classes in jar files

Writing about web page

Ever get a ClassNotFoundException and didn't know where the hell to find the elusive jar file that contained that class?

Try out Jarhoo a search engine for java classes :)
