Hmm, Ok... I admit I should have added some thought on GTalk on it,
we're behind an Institute firewall and it wasnt connecting at times
so couldnt form an informed opinion on it . yet the mail was to
initiate a download of an alternate way of doing something which most
of us do daily, so all the people are on the same plan and can
Discuss. I am a silent reader of the list most of the time and "feed"
on what people have to say. I agree there are a thousand products
being released everyday, yet when Mac launches Mac mini it was a hot
topic of Product Design Discussion

The mail wasnt meant as an commercial advertisement, it was meant as
news/ raw-material for creating food for thought.. Any inconvenience
caused is regretted.

David thus spake:
> Abhishek, I consider this to be an unsolicited commercial e-mail.

To make things clear, I am not affliated to google in anyway other
than a user, none of my relatives or close friends work in Google,
Google didnt pay me a cent for announcing this on the list, and does
not take responsibility of what I wrote in part or in whole, so the
mail may have been un solicited but wasn't commercial. Any feel it
gave in that regard was purely coincidential. (Same goes for Firefox
promotion)

peace :-)

Abhishek,
Besides spamming us :-) ...
A question: in your first mail you pasted a piece of a Goggle page
stating the following-
"Google Talk is still in beta. Just like with Gmail, we're working
hard to add features and make improvements, so we might also ask for
your comments and suggestions periodically. We appreciate your help in
making it even better!"
I did want to send feedback about Gmail but I didn't find how to do it.
Can you give me a clue?
Thanks

BTW, I'll be giving GT a try. Specially if it works thru firewalls.
At office by obvious reasons, at home because my children are always
willing to connect and I'm always trying to protect our home-office
network.

Hi :-)
I usually get in touch with them using the "suggest a feature"/"Get
help with a technical issue" links under the "Contact Us" option in
the Help Center inside the Gmail Interface.

They have been changing the Help Centre slowly over the weeks, when I
first got the invite, there was a "report a bug" link on top, which
disappeared after a few days. Then it was on the first page of Help
Center and now its under Contact Us.

On G-Talk, my g33k friends tell me that they have an open support and
one can access G-Talk with other open-source options like Gaim in
Linux and they are working on more and more clients.

Have a look at this to see if your favorite client is listed ..

Errata: Make that the Help Centre on the G-talk Homepage :-) and
here's the full link:
