MSBOB and Google Talk

March 19, 2006

I have been playing with MS Bob a bit, The logo (Nerd Smile in MSN) still freaks me out a little though 😛

I downloaded Google Talk today, 876KB download which is the size a messenger program should be. Sadly I don’t think I will end up using it much as all my messenging contacts are on MSN and are very unlikely to change over, there isn’t much point in having two apps running when you can just use the one. I think people actually like all the bloat in MSN too (Winks?) haha!

This is how a messenging program should look! No ads! No Sidebar! No web search! And a simple design that does not take over the screen! The features that Google Talk lacks compared to MSN I don’t think I’d miss. Google Talk cannot do file transfer but MSN isn’t the best at that and Google Talk has seamless integration with GMail which does it perfectly.
