I use Google talk to connect with my family and friends. Most of my friends are using Gmail as primary email so Google talk (IM and Web based) is their default IM for them as well. Sometimes I want to know something like today’s currency exchange rate i need to open up the browser and look up in Bloomberg.

It works on many popular chat applications that support Google Talk. To use Google Talk Guru, sign in with your Google account in Gtalk and add [email protected]. Now you can ask some information like sports results, translation, etc. Examples keywords are available in Google Talk Guru page.
