And one thing more...

In all the reporting that I have seen in recent days ahead of the Google/AOL deal, nowhere did I see a reference to point four in this press release. That's some afterthought, having GTalk and AIM users able to communicate, though I guess it could be considered somewhat elementary given Google's potential to harness GAIM to unilaterally achieve universal interoperability for GTalk. At any rate, it's interesting to see such a prominent placement of voice and IM in a deal which the media has overwhelmingly covered as a search/content-driven transaction.
