Google Instand Messaging

I had just heard that there are rumors about Google’s IM Product. Google doesn’t tend to do things that everyone else is doing. They do something that has a unique value.

I think that the article misses the obvious draw of a google IM system — leveraging gmail. I just opened a gmail account, and I can think of one feature that would greatly help the IM system to get off the ground: Archiving all the conversations into the gmail interface and allowing searching. That would be the only reason Google would bother taking on the established base of Yahoo and AIM.
