I can't wait, context sensitive 'advoice' ads being played before you get to hear your messages!

An answerphone in your inbox?

When will they run out of ideas! I have no idea if it would work or even if it would be useful. But it certainly is innovation.

Sam well, I've seen this for quite a while in other products.
Swisscom (Swiss phone company) for example offers this service, when you miss a call on your mobile, it records it and sends you an email with a .wav attachement and the recorded message in it.
So I think it is not _that_ innovative, but it will be a nice feature if the GTalk network is growing.

Corsin: Ooh. Didn't know about that.

I believe the GTalk Network is growing. Is it not that case that AIM will be able to talk to GTalk (and hence Gmail Chat) soon? Given Google's stake in AOL.

Also Yahoo! and MSN are making it possible to people to talk across their networks. Once that is done it will just require one last huge merge to make AIM, GTalk, MSN and Yahoo! all talking to each other.

That will take years though.

Hi Sam

I thought more in direction that Skype goes. With making calls to the "old" real telephone network.
And do you _really_ think there will ever be a network where you as ICQ user can talk to a friend which only uses MSN (Messenger) and another one using GTalk (with the software)? I really think you will ever have different accounts to reach all your friends on the different networks.
But that is more off topic now :)
