Google Talk Is Now Live...Look Out Skype

I guess it was just a matter of time. Those crazy folks from Google are jumping into the IP Telephony arena albeit with just alittle toe in the water dabbling at first. Google Talk is a straight IM program, tied in with Gmail, and with no voice capability except to and from other Google Talk users.

For now.

But only for now.

It's going to have softphone capability.

Google is working closely with Earthlink and Sipphone to federate EarthLink's Vling service and Sipphone's Gizmo Project with the Google Talk service as quickly as possible, while offering the best possible user experience.

Look out, Skype.
