isn't flash plugin actually capable of inputting audio? I think that's how they should be doing it in the future..

"clicking this button opens up a new voice conversation with the selected user through Google Talk"

This is just a shortcut to Google Talk. Nothing special :(I thought that this will be real web based VOiP via flash plugin.
