An Update

Google Buzz has been a huge let down, and so, for now at least, I've given up on the hopes of ever having a decent instant-messaging client from Google that integrates Blogger, Gmail and other important Google services.

In the meantime, check out my blog. I'll occasionally post about Internet stuff there. I've already weighed in on Twitter's promoted tweets, and it looks like they're going to be taking my suggestions.

I feel like Google Talk has been a kind of let down all around. It could have been a great way to integrate Google Everything, but instead it's just a kind of side feature of Gmail. Does anyone even use the Google Talk desktop application?

I still login to MSN from time to time, but really it seems like messengers are obsolete. With Facebook chat, and everyone on Facebook, there's no need to IM. I can IM over Facebook if I need to. If they're offline, I send them a message.

I'd still like to see a pretty awesome messenger program, though. So, I'm considering starting up a business and taking out a business loan to develop my own. I could make it fully integrated with all kinds of services, so it'd be the only program you need to do everything you want to do online.

Still No Updates

Google Talk is still rather disappointing. So, in the meantime, I still use MSN Messenger. However, mostly I don't do IMs. I have Gmail for my domain ( and Google Talk is integrated with it. The people I talk to most have an account there as well, so we talk on it.

In other news, I just finished making a small site at Geocities. It is a directory of sorts. Mostly it contains Heroes information. But it also has great links to some of my favorite sites. So, check it out here: My Heroes and TV Site.

That's all for now.

NBC Heroes

Well, we have Google Talk now, but it's not quite what I hoped for.

Anywho, there's a great new show on NBC. It's on hiatus right now, but will return sometime in January. It comes on Monday nights, so check it out. But first you have to get caught up on the happenings somehow. I hear Sci-Fi has re-runs.

The show is called Heroes. It's about evolutionary advancements in the human race that give individuals special abilities, such as flight and time bending.

Mr. Bennet is my favorite character. He works at Primatech Paper Company, secretly hunting the Heroes. He may not be a Hero himself, as he hasn't yet used any powers. However, his daughter Claire is a Hero. She has the power to regenerate tissue, so she can heal injuries.

Be sure to check it out on NBC sometime!

Gmessenger - What is it?

Gmessenger is the Instant Messenger that I am hoping Google will create. I'm hoping Google will take the best of MSN and Yahoo (forget AOL, it's terrible) and create the ultimate Messenger and integrate it with everything Google has to offer. See This Page for my summary of the Gmessenger concept.

If you have ideas, suggestions, thoughts or whatever, comment them here and hopefully, when Google becomes aware of our blog, they will receive and impressive amount of feedback from us.

Help us get Googles attention by sending our Blog link as feedback.

You can also join them in a chat room or invite them to a chat room.

Blogger – Access your Mini-dashboard here. Quick Blog to any of your blogs and see recent updates to blogs.

Orkut – Which Orkut friends are online? You can see them in the top category (display much like that of Primary Gmail Contact List). View friends of friends that are online as well. Chat with people who are online and belong to your communities as well.
