Who cares? No one uses AIM anymore.


Remember When AOL Instant Messenger Was Our Facebook?

Giz: After bowing down to Google Talk this week, AIM is effectively dead. Most buddy lists are ghost towns. Chatters fled to Google, Skype and Facebook for their conversational needs. But at its pinnacle, AIM was something singular and amazing.

Yah AIM was amazing, but now that it's integrated with Google Talk I don't need to log into AIM anymore. It's all through GTalk, very simple and easy. I just wish Google would develop an in -house desktop client for GTalk, right now I'm using Trillian and it gets the job done but I think the interface is ugly.

Also, convoluted? My Digsby looks a helluva lot cleaner than that AIMbomination.

AIM & Google Talk To Become Interoperable

Not for long however, as the two are about to become interoperable; meaning Google Talk and AIM users will be able to chat regardless of which service they use for the first time.
