GTalkr, a web-based GTalk client developed by Wes and Dudley Carr has been put to rest. The Flash-based client was impressive enough, but I guess with the advent of embedded Gtalk inside GTalk, made it a bit redundant. The Carrs have joined Google, and will work on GTalk in the future. And Google does need all the help it can get for GTalk, which is not making any meaningful dent in the IM space as yet. Beyond that, starting a company, and showcasing your work is a good way to snag a job these days at Google? Maybe that should be the preferred exit for those new-products that keep popping up every day ;-).
