Anyhow, I just checked my Gmail account online, and to my surpise, they have now added some kind of chat feature. Why?! Do I really need even more chat and IM capabilities? I mean, right now, I am online in the following ways:
- Skype voice
- Skype IM
Do I really need another channel? Honestly, I don't think so. However, it does seem like the next 'natural' step to the Google Desktop OS...
update:b3n just pointed out to me that there is yet another Google IM-like thing out there. It is called Google Talk.
It seems more and more like they are adopting strategies that we have seen in other large software companies: Embrace, Extend and Extinguish...
