Gmail has just added the ability to do text messaging from the chat window. Text messaging was actually supposed to come out a few weeks ago, but was pulled at the last second because of a glitch. I tried it out with Warner and it seemed to work just fine now – when he replied, it even came back up in the chat window that I had open. One feature that would be of interest to some travelers – the ability to send this text from anywhere in the world! This is only open to US residents right now, but I would guess it things go well other areas will soon follow. Click the little Labs button while in Gmail to gain access to this feature – and a bunch of other nifty things as well!
