Google Talk: Look Out Skype?
- Google Talk drops calls, has inferior sound quality and takes a long time to connect (sometimes 30+ minutes! Skype is almost instantaneous). None probably insurmountable problems, though, given Google's resources.
- Skype has far more features, greater reliability, etc.
- Google Talk works powerfully with GMail, but you also have to have a GMail account to use it!
- And I'd like to add that I doubt Google Talk will see, encourage or perhaps even allow, the huge number of enthusiasts to become developers and other key parts of its community. Skype is seriously awesome.
