I don’t trust people who don’t have a gmail account.
There, I said it.
Still using Hotmail instead of gmail is like watching a black and white TV when someone is offering you a plasma.
Still using Yahoo is like staring at cave paintings. I briefly used Yahoo as my primary e-mail… when I was Pennsylvania Amish. I shouldn’t mock, as I hear they make lovely ladies in those parts.
I love the way gchat/google talk works for chatting too.
I’ll admit that I used AOL IM at one point. It… it seemed like a good idea at the time. The only decent thing was that you could set your “Away” message. I would usually use a quote from HARDCORE LOGO, “I can’t come to the phone right now, I’m eating corn chips and masturbating.” Which was a complete lie.
I don’t eat corn chips.
I even used Yahoo chat. It was the only thing that my gf at the time could use at work. I hated myself a little inside. (For Yahoo, not the girlfriend.)
And I do still use MSN Messenger. Mostly so that The ACN can use her webcam to show me what she made in school, what she got as a present, what she is eating for supper and so that when I ask if she misses Uncle Pete she can shake her head “no” and giggle like mad.
I even installed the Google Talk stand alone program. The benefits of which are…
Well, I’m not entirely sure.
It does allow you to send “voice mail” to other users. I’ve never done it. And I’m not sure why I wouldn’t just grab my phone and call the person instead. But, I’m a boy and easily impressed by superfluous technological dealies.
And nice legs.
It also allows me to automatically and obnoxiously tell everyone on my friends list what song I am listening to at that particular moment.
“Peter, are you listening to REO Speedwagon?”
“You didn’t see nothin’!”
