Just get Trillian and you can connect to Google Talk without Google pushing that Google+ garbage down your throats.

Apparently Google gets a pass no matter what they do. We will all be sorry for this someday.
Welcome to the new tech community; Google doesn't need a PR division because they have all the tech blogs spinning everything for them, for free.

To them, Google is the greatest thing since sliced bread despite not doing anything revolutionary (unless you count borderline stalking of every Internet user on the planet) in, like, ten years.

Google is far from perfect, but what about Google Glasses?

It's even worse when you click the notification, and reply back to the message. Only then do you realize the person you just messaged is not the notification you clicked on.

The end of Facetime?

I use Google Talk in Messages, I'd imagine that Trillian works too.

Evidence for this? Is Robert Scoble, for example, a creeper or stalker?

I have no idea who that is but considering the only reasons for wanting a hidden camera is for creeping, I'd guess yes? The more they spend time on stupid things like glasses or trying to push a privacy invading social network, the worst they become... meanwhile, they're dodging taxes left and right and essentially ripping off peoples open wifi connections.

This reads like a conspiracy theorist's wet dream

The "ripping off peoples open wifi connections" thing was something that happened during a Streetview sweep a couple years back, which Google shut down after being put to task for it in a big, bad way. It's not an ongoing thing.

And taxes? Hell, you can't take sides here. Google does dodge their taxes. So does Apple. If you're going to call out one, you have to call out the other. You can't damn one while giving the other a pass.

I don't know why everybody is hating on google so much. I have far less trust in Facebook and they're basically trying to do the same thing as Google.

It's been probably 3 yrs since he's jumped ship. So I agree with you. But again, I have no reason to leave AT&T since they've treated me well for about six years running...

Because Google has proven, time after time, that they don't care about you one bit in their conquest to control the Internet.

Since when is it opt-in now that Google forces you to enter your full name and sign up for Google+ when you open a Google account.

Or when you want to leave a review you must use your full name - and have all your purchases tied to it.

Or when Youtube forces you to use your real name.

So essentially what you're saying is this: because you lack the imagination for why people would want Google Glasses or anything like it, so it's for creepers, and even though you don't know anything about Robert Scoble, because he has a pair of Glasses he's a creeper. Excellent logic.

As for me, I like Google Hangouts, so I'll keep using it. Google's done a good job of finally making a good chat client (albeit not as good as, say, Adium).
