It has been released. Not as special as I thought it was going to be, would have been nice if it was all web based. I was thinking about it today how sweet it would have been if you could goto and login like you do with gmail and you could IM from any web browser. Now that would have been sweet. You could stay logged in forever. Anyways yeah I hope they put out a Mac version of it soon so that I can use the voice call feature of it. But if not then umm screw google! heh
