Enter Meebo for Android, brought to you by the same people behind the awesome browser-based IM application of the same name. Read More

    No more futzing with Safari IM solutions, kids. The iPhone has it’s own native messaging apps. First, there’s Apolloim, a super beta AIM client for the iPhone.

I’m a Mac user, so I use iChat for much of my online communications. The program auto-logs-me-on when the machine wakes up, and I noticed I had friends online I’d never seen before. Who was Spleak? Who was Prof Gilzot? I… Read More
