Google, Google, Google stop making good new products!!

So this week a big on for the google watcher in all of us, firstly the new desktop product http://desktop.google.com which includes a new side bar, and a range of new web features including storing rss feeds you've read searching you outlook for new messages etc. its a really interesting development, although in testing we have seen it crash a little.

Secondly Google announced their IM client , this is available here http://www.google.com/talk which offers free voice calls to any other google user, similar to Yahoo!, but also supports in release some other IM ids, this is expected to lead to an opening up of this business, which is good for all concerned...
