  Google Talk - B.F.D.

You may know that one of Google's "Ten things" is You can make money without doing evil.

But did you also know that page has some other pithy phrases like: Great just isn't good enough. At the bottom, that page has a note rationalizing away the good old days:

When we first wrote these "10 things" four years ago, we included the phrase "Google does not do horoscopes, financial advice or chat."

Well now Google does do chat, apparently. Which makes me wonder what old-time Googlers think of Google Talk. Basically it's equivalent to Yahoo's or AOL's IM, and not quite as important as Skype. It's as if Google just decided to get it out there, and maybe make it better as time goes along. It's not even an AJAX app for heaven's sake!

Sort of like Microsoft used to do. But it doesn't seem good enough for Google.
