Google unites IM with E-mail

If Google goes ahead with plans to unite IM with e-mail it will make a lot of people happy and maybe loosen MSN’s current grip on the IM market. Live advertising based on current chat content anyone?

    Bundling all of their content and applications together could make Google the new Microsoft. I think that because Google basically started as a garage company, the way they work is viewed differently to the way Microsoft does.

    I know that sounds like a rap for MS, but remember, Osama was a hero to the Americans when he and his cronies booted the Russians out of Afghanistan.

    I think their bundling doesn’t intrude in any way, so I don’t think it could ever be harmful. Personally I hate the fact that I have to carry a thumbdrive around with me to store stuff when I’d much rather just access it all from a central Google location.
