If you have a friend or relative living a bit further away than you’d like, you can stay in touch with the magic of video chat. It’s actually quite simple to set up; here’s how to do it.
AIM has integrated their instant messaging service with Google Talk, allowing you to talk to your friends on both protocols with only one login. Here’s how to import all your AIM buddies into Google Talk in one fell swoop.
Over the next few days, Google is going to be changing its AIM support to something a little more tightly integrated. No longer will you have to sign into AIM separately from Google; you just sign into Google Talk and you can chat with your AIM friends straight from that account — either by adding them to your Google Talk list (in the form of [email protected]) or by using the AIM to Gmail contacts importer, which should be available soon.
