10 thoughts on “The Incredible importance of Instant Message clients”

  1. Many of the IM clients are already a phone. There have been stories that have claimed (without attribution of course) that Yahoo and the like are not advertising phone capability because it consumes too much bandwidth at the server. So the real magic that is needed is implementing UDP hole punching mechanism.

  2. What would it take for companies like Skype and Virbiage to compete with giants like Microsoft, AOL and Yahoo—on the IM/VoIP subject?

    What would they need to bring to the table?

  3. Secure, enterprise class encrypted IM, capable of safely crossing firewalls, ability to build personal “presence” network for paying customers (even with scontact who not paying), no software required and integrated with VoIP through single desktop? Be our guests free on the IM. VoIP available in the next 10 days or so. VoIP to PSTN shortly afterwards. Enjoy.

  4. Why are You so negative about Skype? They are in pole position till now and they introduced SkypeOut just a week ago with lot of satisfaction.

    I don’t agree with your view 🙂 till now
