Being a fan of google is the closest I have come to being a fan of anything/anybody in my life. And of course since they came out with GDS v 2.0 and then Google talk, I just can not stop almost worshipping it 😀
In such a context, above was a nice change. No, not that I completely believe in it. Due to its commitment to open standards (as Abhaya pointed out that yahoo keeps changing its protocol to disallow other clients and at Google, they are themselves telling you about various clients you could use besides theirs!!), it can not lose goodwill that easily. Of course, as Robert H. Schuller rightly said “it is impossible to be at the top of the needle without getting pricked”.
However, caution is always a good thing. Both Google and Google worshippers need to be cautious. 🙂
