Being in the same room.
Something called Trillian - it allows you to combine all the different instant messenger services in one program, so no matter what your friends are on, with only one IM program up, you can "talk" to all of them, see who's on all of them. etc.
Yep. Very similar. It also will let you check most of the web mail services (gmail, AOL, etc) and most of the larger social sites (facebook, Linked In, Etc) from the one user interface. They have a moble app too.
You use QQ?
I tried it. Even though the user interface is better than Trillian in some ways. I liked the underlying logic in Trillian best.
Oh I see. Are you Chinese?
LOL!. No. I am American born and bred.
Ohhh^^ Okay I just thought you were cause it's very popular for Chinese people to use as well.
I didn't know that.
I just like to try things, that's all. When someone says (about software, apps), "You should try...." , I often do.
Ohhh I see ^^
