Geekback - Lost?

More ways to eat up your data plan.

Speaking of Google and Blackberries, there are reports that there will be an official Talk Google client for the 'berry Real Soon Now. This is pretty funny, because when Talk Google was announced, I heard that folks at RIM were forbidden to even mention it.

There is no word yet on when the client will see the light of day, or how you will get it, but the sooner the better. This is a seriously welcome development - the legions of Blackberry users out there now running around with hacked or badly-ported versions of other Java-based Jabber clients are probably getting sick of resetting their SIM card 8 times a day after catastrophic crashes. And yes, I'm guilty as charged.
