Some Google related tidbits

A new version of Google Talk has just been released. It supports Photo & File Sharing, Voicemail and Music status sharing features. Cool isn't it?

Find more information here at the official Google blog and the official google talk blog.

Meanwhile TopCoder has a lot of components related to XMPP posted these days. XMPP stands for eXtensible Messaging and Prescence Protocol. It was developed by the Jabber open source chat server/client and is now used by Google Talk as well as many other IM clients.

The international coding competition Google Code Jam has been announced and registrations have started. Google has been investing a lot of money in these coding competitions. Recently we saw a Google Code Jam for India, China and Europe. TopCoder organizes these competitions on behalf of Google. It's said that the top contestants usually recieve an open offer to join Google's engineering team. All the best to those who are participating. I think I'll be one of them :)
