Tyro Trader: views of a market student: Google smackdown!
Haven't written anything about IM bots in oh, about a year, but ran across this and it is quite nice. Google "gets it," and I'm continually impressed.
Tyro Trader: views of a market student: Google smackdown!: "Yet again, I'm blown away by how easy it is to work with Google! I've written code to tie into blogger.com and to Google Calendar and so I was already impressed. I decided to add alerts via Google Talk in case I'm not sitting at my desk and it was even easier than I could have guessed:
GoogleTalkConnection con = new GoogleTalkConnection();con.login('joesmith', 'password');con.createChat('email@example.com') .sendMessage('Howdy!');
That's it! Incredible."
